Light Show at Natural Bridge, VA. The Biblical story of the seven days of Creation are told, set to classical and contemporary music, and coordinated with a spectacular light show against the natural landscape. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a side trip.

Used a very long exposure (8 full seconds) without flash (no flash photography permitted during the show). This happened to be Day Four in the Creation program.

PP included very little...

This is an amazing photo. I would really love to go there sometime. It sounds awesome, and you captured it to perfection! Congratulations on such a strong showing! In so many other challenges, this score would have been in the top 10.

Something about this...I'm just not sure what...I really like it a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2005 05:27:23 PM
This is very artistic. I like the use of lighting on the cliffs here, but I wish that we had more detail in the lower left corner. Since this was a Basic Editing Challenge, the use of a ND gradient filter when shooting would have given you more detail in the shadows.

I know dark is in these days, but I would lighten the subject green conifers a bit more to really draw the eye in. I like the shot though.

Heres my take, This is a great photo, has lots of places that draw your eye, I really like the trees through the rock. It just feels to lighted on the right side, great photo never the less!

Looks like you had a very good flash for this shot! Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2005 11:08:05 AM
O.k...I feel like such a Dutz.

I live 15 minutes from Natural Bridge and it never occurred to me to go up and shoot it for this challenge. It's the old, "New Yorker never visits the Statue of Liberty" thing.

Great photo..one of my three best this week. Good on you to think of it.

Amazing. The light is unbelievable. Like gold being washed over the side. Those trees stand out so delicately with their hint of green. WOW
