The person (and pier) really add a sense of scale for this image. Those waves are very impressive in size. Nice flow and feel to this with great placement of elements within the scene - very well balanced.

I really enjoyed this image. Very nice fit for the challenge. Can't really tell if it's snowing or raining. I'm going to say snowing (looks like peeps are bundled up a bit).

Some of what I like about this is the feeling of being there. The choice of comp and focal distance is right on the money. Last thing is the processing choice; the sepia toning is perfect for this (would have been way too busy in color).

Anyway, wanted to drop by and mention that I liked this. TTYL

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First, let me say congrats on a very respectable 6th place finish in a strong field of images for this challenge.

You did capture some nice lighting with the late day (or early day) shadows. The colors are also close to what you'd find on the complementary colors scale (orange & blue if I remember correctly).

The foreground to center line of shadows below the ridgeline add a nice leading line element ... right to the peak. The clouds even lined up for you in a supporting role. :-)

One thing that is difficult (or was for me) is to determine a sense of scale for this mound of earth.

While this is indeed a pretty image I think the competition of mountains, lakes, trees, were just strong enough to keep your entry down a little.

Best of luck in your future entries! Look forward to seeing what's up next.

Regards,
Barry

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First let me say I've enjoyed looking at this image. It's a interesting and lovely part of the world to travel in. I look at those 'monuments' and can't help but wonder how long they've been there and what did this place look like 1,000 or 20,000 years ago.

As for the image particulars; it's a well contemplated composition with a nicely balanced scene. The road lends a leading line element into the valley in a good way, although with an abrupt ending.

That ending begs the question; what was going on down there? The red tail lights are moving so well and then end in a smudgy blur. Did the vehicle stop? Was it full of tourists stopping for a photo op? The lights could have stopped for any variety of other reasons I suppose - will we ever know? For me, this piece of the image is a large part of the story. The scenery is still beautiful, yes, but the intrigue is in those red lights.

Now for the challenge theme. The 'light' in this case appears to actually be the tail lights. Yes / No? I say that as the title implies it with 'Last trip'. However, when I read the photographers comments you mention trying to capture the last bit of light on top of the rocks. So, the car was a happy bonus? :-)

All of the above banter aside, this was again, a very strongly contested challenge with some very good images gracing the front page. I think most viewers / voters were expecting 'light' to play a stronger role in the image subject context (as least I was) and honestly, I think this image did quite well overall given the competition.

I've enjoyed spending some time with your photo. Look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

Regards,
Barry

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is a splendid capture of Spider Rock at just the right time of day with beautiful red light. F8 captured the detail very well throughout.

From the other images of this location I've seen, yours is right up there with the best IMO. The composition is well balanced with a good choice of land vs sky.

I'm hard pressed to nitpik much on this really. Perhaps the voters were looking for less rock and more 'pop'?

Sorry, but this is a difficult 'critique' ... can't find a lot "wrong" with it or much that could have been handled much differently. It was a tough, competitive challenge, and you did well overall.

Best of luck to you in future challenges!

Regards,
Barry
