    One of my feeble attempts at photographying the beautiful light washing the limestone walls of a canyon near Page, AZ.

    Please, be as brutal as you want to be. ;)

    I comparing your photo to some of Charles Cramer's so I don't know if thats fair. But I like the wall on the right side good detail and color. the thing that bothers me the most is the dark shadow made by the rock over hang and the light washed wall on the left side contrast each other so much. They also dont show nearly the detail of the right side of the photo. So this produces another hard contrast against what was prevously mentioned.

    How did you meter the scene?

    Thanks Vmann, I appreciate your comments. As far as metering, I measured with incident meter (ambient light) and bracketed. Film was Velvia 50, shot with Hassy 500cm (6x6). Scanned with Canoscan at 2400 dpi. I will scan the other bracketed frames to see if there is improvement in detail/contrast areas.

    I agree with Vmann's comments. Although the light is lovely and there is great texture on the right of the photo. It's almost too washed out on the left.

    But I still want to be in the image. :thumbup:

    ;)

    Would love to see more! :)

    Beautiful!!!! The ribbons of light and texture are classic. Personally I am seeing a strong bird shape.

    Critically maybe tone down the yellow.

    Ha!... Didn't even see the bird before! Cool! Thanks Craig for pointing it out.

    Yeah, I think you are all right about the yellow. I have other frames, bracketed, which I will have to scan upon my return home.
