Wow - thanks again for all your kind words & comments. I'm glad I posted these.

Kevin - that first shot was one I particularly had in my mind to take. I wanted an ultra-wide capturing the full breadth of the entry-way, with its lovely pools, miniature falls and that majestic Christmas tree overlooking it all. Fortunately 12mm was wide enough!

Lovely set, Dave! Been wanting to go there but I'm worried about the 6.5 mile hike to that place - might be a little too strenuous for an old and unfit man like me.

These are some of the best I've seen of the Subway. I particularly like the first showing the "upper level" and the light on the small waterfalls...Kevin

Great set of images. You nailed compositions in all of them. As far as processing, I would approach these shots differently. It is personal preference but to me the shadows are opened a bit too much. All images have a lot of details everywhere and this interrupts the transition and the flow is lost. I would try softening the contrast and darken the shadows in some parts of images. Great shot anyway.

Always a treat to see.
I think you've done an excellent job bringing back your interpretation of a magical place.
No one else can replicate your unique experience.

As always - thanks for the kind words.

Artur - a special thanks for taking the time for your critique! In terms of which pic's processing I am the happiest with it would be pic #2 and I'm the least happy with the processing of pic#1 - my initial thought was it's just to sterile.

In #1 I was really hoping to capture more of the magic of the subway glow and the tree overlooking the waterway and agree that the processing, especially in the shadows, has more of a flash captured effect. So I do appreciate your observation of looking at transition and flow. So with some quick changes of darkening shadows, tweaking some luminance and selectively adding some Orton (and with the caveat this is a quick laptop production) I am posting the results, which I already like better.

Lighthawk - This is one reason why I'm so addicted to landscape photography. It allows us to bring home a special memory of our unique experiences in nature!

I like your last post best of all Dave. The others were excellent, but this one seems easier on my eyes.

Sorry you did not get the chance. I just want to mention that not all the permits are given away by lottery. They do hold some for walk-up requests on a one day before window. Dave
