I enjoyed the lighting of this trail image... I'm wondering what's the best rule of thumb when displaying an infinite trail... i have several version where the trail occupies different amounts of the frame... your opinions appreciated..

This is a really lovely image Travis. :highfive: I'd also love to see another version where the exit appears closer.

For me it works as a centered image but I think it would have been even stronger if the path had a bit more of an angle to it.
There's lots of extra info just waiting to be pulled out of that path with more dodging. (Just look how the path's left side sings)
Maybe a small burn in the right foreground as well....but these are the small details.

Great job!

I too struggle with these kinds of shots. I usually tend to take the cop out approach and shoot a bunch of compositional choices.

I guess, they mostly end up central - I find these shots are harder to do the rule of thirds with because they are so symmetrical. I guess if these was some extra detail in one side, then the off-centre approach would be more likely to work.

I'm pretty much in agreement with Marko on this.

Hey, guys, how come you missed the rather important detail that the centre is out of focus? :p :)
