    The shot was made before the sun came up. It was a bit dark. It looks just fine to me, the way I wanted it to look. The color is exactly the way I want it.

    Ah, that time before the sun comes up when it's light enough to see but not light enough to fill the landscape with vibrant color.

    This capture isn't as vivid as some of your other shots but it looks nice. It has plenty of color, it's just a bit more subdued than usual.

    That's a nice time to be standing out there. Arrive at a location early, setup equipment and enjoy the peacefulness of the early morning until sunrise.

    It's a nice time to be outdoors.

    I like this, the pre-dawn sky has some colour and most of the shot has cool tones that are balanced nicely by the bright red cactus flowers. The other thing I like is detail throughout the image and comp is spot on.

    I like the light - Think it gives it a more natural look - It really does show the diversity of the plants in the desert :)

    I like this one. Nice shot.

    I think I would agree with others, though... try to lighten it somewhat and do some color enhancing. :)
