Challenge: Hidden Gem -- 1,000th Challenge! (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Location: 17 Mile Drive near Monterey, CA
Date: Mar 25, 2005
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 30 sec
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Mar 10, 2009

Taken near dark while on the 17 Mile Drive near Monterey, CA. Some editing done, but it was so long ago I don't really remember much other than some exposure changes and USM, which is pretty much the extent to which I know how to edit pictures. I guess I need to learn.

The picture seemed to lose some clarity and color during the compression. I guess I need to learn how to do that as well.

I would like to hear any comments, good or bad, that you might have. I'm trying to learn.

Thanks.

Wow, there is something really surreal about this, really feels like there's a story behind it.

Needed a little more sharpness but nice and natural lighting and scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:36:15 PM
I like the shot a lot.. the cropping on the top right is the only distraction, the sliver of light blue needs either more or less of it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:26:50 PM
Nice shot. Like the crop.

I photographed this location back in 1988... it would be fun to go back there again! 17-mile drive was a memorable, fun excursion.

This was the last image I voted on (1127); I like the composition but for me, I think it could be slightly sharper and have slightly more contrast.

So graceful yet so weathered. If only the tree could talk, I bet it would have some stories to tell.
