"Morning at White Sands"


Simsbury, US
          

Shot this during ANPAT last month. Still going through the 1300 or so images I shot. Tried 2 different crops. I think I like the first better than the second.

I'm sure that's a Nikonian in the frame but I'm not sure who it is. We were the only ones in that part of the park at that time.

D800, 24-70 f2.8 @ 70mm, 1/45s, f/8, ISO 100, tripod

I can't tell you who the Nikonian is, but I like #2 better. IMO #1 has too much uninteresting space at the bottom of the frame. The subtle colors on the mountains and the sand are great.

Nice pictures!
Auto edit from Photoshop CS6 attached, without konwing how the scene looked when you took it.

Thanks James.

Actually as I remember it I think the soft lighting is more representative of the actual scene, but the punchier version does have some appeal.

Thanks for your opinion Gary. I'm still on the fence a bit but I do see your point.

I like the second version in your original posting. It looks very authentic with a very nice balance.
