Whenever I spend a lot of time on a photo it tanks. This might be one of those cases.

I drove around like an idiot trying to find the "right" scene. I had it in my head, but a set of circumstances kept me from finding it.

Then I edited and reedited a gazillion photos and finally decided this was the best, albeit boring.

Good luck little photo.

This was taken just north of my house at North Mountain Preserve.

This is a great shot, photos with shallow backgrounds rarely do well in the Amsel Adams challenge, this is an exception, the composition is excellent, almost feels like 2 images.

The clouds are nice, but the composition is a bit flat. The image is overly processed, the area in the top right corner is especially noticeable.

What lovely wispy clouds, and how well they match the wispy vegetation.

This is exceptionally nice from a tonal perspective. It's marred a little, technically, by the skyline haloing. Compositionally it's pretty nice, but just a bit lacking in the sense of not having a more dominant subject. For me, it's more a picture of the sky than it is of the desert, actually, because the sky dominates here. Still and all, a very nice offering.

This sky is great, better than the ground, which looks oversharpened to me. Nice balance between the sky and ground though.
