Beautiful-this goes on Luke's favorites.
IMO this is better than the similar one (similar in subject)
that placed 3rd in this challenge. Well composed, and I like
the detail in the foreground, while it doesn't stray from a
"landscape" photograph.

Great picture. Perfect for duotones. Lovely composition and perspective. Unfortunately one of the things I missed seeing when I was there years back.

Congratulations on your top ten finish with this speeding freak.

Hey G! This image rocks! IMHO, this has a better feel than the other Race Track. Don't get me wrong. The other image was great as well but I like the vertical orientation of this image. It gives it more depth adn distance. The duotone you used is exceptional as well. Great finish my friend ;)

Hey man, nice work. I also took mine on the 18th. Were you there the same time I was (3:00-4:00)?? I was pretty shocked to see another Racetrack picture show up in this challenge!

Well executed photo. My favorite of the challenge, I'm sure this one will ribbon.

I really like the patterns and the line

was'nt this one already submitted?

This is such a great capture of, what I assume is, the Racetrack Playa. Perfect choice for a duotone, looks great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 06:56:42 AM
didn't I just see another view of this? hmmm

This is beautiful and one of the top photos in the challenge. There is another moving rocks pic in the challenge but it isn't as good as this one. I like how the rock and 'path' lead you into the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2006 12:37:00 PM
one of the better shots of this challenge, good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2006 11:06:56 AM
Very nicely composed. This is a great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/25/2006 09:40:44 PM
I like how you emphasized the texture of the mud.. the sepia is a good choice - great crisp focus... I think the composition would have been stronger had you shown the rock in the foreground with it trailing off to the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/25/2006 04:09:17 PM
I like both of the moving rock images in this challenge. I love the rich tonality of this one but the rock moving away does not have the impact of the rock coming at me in the other one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/25/2006 02:44:43 PM
Nicely done my friend. The tonal qualities as well as the textures is amazing. I still have yet to visit this mysterious place.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2006 07:11:43 PM
Wow!!!!!!!!!! We have an artist amongst us... this is clearly a winner. What a great photo. I would hang this up somewhere!!! 10

02/24/2006 02:09:35 PM
Really fascinating - I have no idea what made that indentation in the rock nor what the black thing is but this is very interesting and the tones are beautiful! can't wait to read the description:-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 09:45:05 AM
Okay, how did that happen??! I like the placement of the foreground rock, the clarity of the parched earth and, especially, the gradation of the mountains in the background. Great contrast and lighting. To my mind,perfect! 10

i like best the one of your friend. this one it's a bit too dark for me. Nice capture though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 03:39:56 AM
This is (slightly) my preference of the two studies of this rock. I'd like it even more if the rock and it's "trail" were not there at all. The foreground detail is very good, and the top third is masterful. 7.

02/23/2006 02:54:27 AM
I can't figure it out....but i like it....a lot! I particularly like how the trail is framed.

02/23/2006 02:48:43 AM
What a strong graphic image! Fascinating subject, beautifully accomplished, Depth of field is perfect, exposure right on, duotone works very very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 12:08:52 AM
Wow, I really like the composition on this. Very interesting subject, I would like to know the story behind it. Well done 9

That's wierd, but appealing. Great tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 04:48:04 PM
i liked the one coming at me more than this one. though the sky is really nice in the background in this shot.

02/22/2006 04:26:45 PM
nice composition....

Came back to add this comment... same rock, different angle?//www.dpchallenge.com/challenge_vote_image.php?IMAGE_ID=298548

I am guessing you and a friend went looking for photo ops together?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 12:25:53 PM
holy crap, same shot as I've seen earlier.
Coincidence or did you go on a shoot together?
please explain how this forms if you know.

Beautiful b/w tones and interesting subject matter. Well done!

This is neat, works well in duotone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 10:01:46 AM
This is very artful. The dual colors adds to the image.

This is brilliant

The textures are just tremendous. Nice rule of thirds. This image would work well in almost any challenge. I gave it an 8.

Stunning.
