Challenge: National Parks (Standard Editing*)
Location: Antelope Canyon, Arizona
Date: Jul 2, 2013
Aperture: 2.5
ISO: 125
Shutter: 1/100
Date Uploaded: Aug 28, 2016

There appears to be doubt the place where I took this image belongs on the list found in the challenge description.

We visited the USA 3 years ago for 2 months. The second half of the time was spent hiring a car in Las Vegas and driving through to Denver. We were fortunate enough to visit on the way the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon and many others which I don't currently recall. So if this is a DQ'able offence please forgive me if I got this wrong but in my blurred memory that whole drive was one big NP. If not a DQ'able offence then OOPS!, my bad.

Silver FXP to convert to B/W
LR: Adjusted sharpening, Highlights, Shadows convert to split tones
PSCC: Cloned out a few scars on rocks

Taken with a Sony RX100 which I no longer have.
I entered a similar image taken at the same time back in 2013 and received some good comments regarding the B/W conversion, so this time I thought I would add some split toning.

There are definitely slot canyons and rock formations like this in National Parks in Southern Utah. The assumption seems to be that this is Antelope Canyon and maybe it was, but it definitely doesn't have to be. And anyway, I love it as did many others, so I'm delighted to see it near the top.

Somebody should call the Sierra Club , alert them to all the wonderful photos in this challenge. It's truly amazing. What a beautiful planet we have to live on. Thanks for posting this shot.

That's not a national park, but I'll let it slide ;)
