    Some pictures from a recent trip to Joshua Tree National Park and along historic route 66.

    I hope you like them. Please let me know what you think and how to make them better.

    Thanks.

    Nice shots from Keys View, that's as good as it gets.

    Wow. Excellent shots! Looks like Velvia or something like that. Colors are awesome; and the framing is perfect!

    Very nice job!

    stunning shots, it looks like you did some very skillful photoshop work to bring out the best in them...HDR?

    good stuff. I'd crop a bit off the top in the first image and crop out the rust stop on the right in the bullet holes image. But these are minor adjustments which may or may not improve the photos. Overall ... well done ... hope it wasn't too hot out there for you San Franciscians.

    Wow. The colors on those crane shots are amazing.
    I also love the layers of landscape in the last shot.

    Thanks a lot.

    abraxas: Thanks. Yea it was really beautiful up there. I have some more from the same trip. You can find them here on my flickr account. Also, I still have a bunch i haven't gotten a chance to work on yet.

    AbelR74: Thanks a lot. I'm glad you like them.

    Roger: Thank you. Yea they are all HDR, except the bullet hole one. And all of them got a photoshop pass.

    Seefutlung: Thanks. Yea man, it was boiling hot. Quite a difference from SF. I have to get used to it tho, I just moved down to LA. Last weekend was crazy hot here. I will give the cropping a try. I can see the sunset one work with less clouds... I kinda like the bullet hole on the right tho... Will try it tho. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

    Any one else?

    thanks

    Welcome to SoCal. Yep ... awfully hot last week ... and then you were in Joshua Tree ... the desert ... Glendale is hot ... hot hot hot in summer. Far different than Mark Twain's quote of the coldest winter I spent was a summer in San Francisco. The best part though is now you're a Dodger fan. lol

    So the crane looks unfamiliar to me- Is that even in the park? Maybe Colorado desert side?

    Oops, didn't see the Route 66 note. Maybe east of Amboy?
