Congratulations to dbehrens for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 13 votes - View Previous Winners


At least this winter's cold, snow and bad roads lends itself to postprocessing! Here's a couple of Zion Narrows shots I recently processed. Trying to decide which to print so I thought I would throw them both out there.

I would vote for #1. It shows more of the wall representing the grandness of the place.

#1 - I really like how everything leads to the eye towards the vanishing point of the river. Nicely composed and processed.

There's just something about that first one - just oozes scale. Add in the wall detail you captured and I think it's a no brainer.

I'm digging #1 as well. I prefer the width of the river spanning from left to right. From there the river does a nice bend to the right. Looks great!

I vote #1...the lines in the canyon wall lead you downriver. Love it!

You can't go wrong with either, but…the first really draws the viewer in.

Nbr 1 here also, really like how all lines (walls & river) lead you to wonder what lies around the river bend (apologies to Pocahontas ). Great image!!

Wow . . . I was leaning to #1 as well but had no idea it would be such a slam dunk favorite. Makes my decision easy! Thank you for your comments and opinions!

Thanks again for the votes of confidence in #1. Dave

TriggerMike - thought I would comment on the wall texture. Obviously the lens (CV 12mm) captured it but I recently purchased Topaz Clarity and target its use in a layer to enhance the captured micro-contrast in the picture. I'm not a big plug-in advocate but this plug-in is going to see a lot of future use in my processing!

#2 for me. I feel the composition is more balanced and the slightly more saturated colours make for a more interesting view
