If I may ask...usually the scene inspires you or you select the scene and then build the best possible picture....
I like a lot your landscape images...

Thank you Light50.

Firstly the scene needs to inspires me. If my eye sees something that I like very much, I then try to compose and take my photo to somehow show the scene in a way not usually seen or special in some way. Sometimes conditions are great and it's easy for me, and other times it's very hard.
Sometimes I get it right and other times I fail.

Seeing as I bump others posts up that get missed or ignored ... I might as well bump a few of my own as well.

No one else like this one??

Oh, yes, I like it. It's just that I've been playing catch-up for the week. Doesn't help that my hard drive tried to eat itself (continuous reboots). I spent the afternoon in the recovery console doing a chkdisk with the repair flag. That one takes a loooooong time. Fortunately for me I have more than one internet capable computer. Me and Google are fast friends.

The colors of the sky are wonderful. I keep thinking that a giant set those rocks on the left down every which way. It's an odd thought.

Thanks Q1 ... and yeh ... that's odd alright :)
Lots of threads get missed and receive no comments for one reason or another. That's why I troll through looking for them every now and then and make a comment in the hope it will bring them up and others will see something they missed.

I like this one but I find the shadows a bit heavy - I thing would sing louder as a fuller HDR is you bracketed exposures.

Thanks matt and Marko. I think I tried it as HDR but it didn't work well for me.

I like this one fine just the way it is. I like the shadows that give such a strong indication of the light.

Thanks Bambi ... it does kinda look other-worldly indeed :)

Cheers Iggy ... I like the strong shadows too. Would probably make a good B&W now you mention it :lightbulb
