    where do you go to shoot these pictures you post?

    I absolutely love this picture..everything about it. Even the horizon is perfect looking through the window, which is where most make the mistake.

    Im trying to make crit on this but i cant. i love it.

    Maybe try it in black and white to really show the oldness of all the wood and everything?

    Abraxas strikes again with an amazing image! Wonderful, excellent, colorful, and very interesting. Is this an HDR?

    Thank you Keith and NJ. I don't mind not getting the critique, however, I enjoy the comments for sure, and sharing.

    This is a 7-exposure HDR made with photomatix. With this particular shot I tried something a bit different attempting to emulate some of the work I've seen produced my HDR-heroes. There's a few things I like and a few I don't care for. I hope I can retain the good stuff to incorporate in my junk.

    99% of my shots are from the Mojave Desert, and maybe a third of those are within 50 miles of where I live. I love it here.

    The HDR definitely makes this image pop! Fascinating image!

    I'm working on a theory. You're either the luckiest person in the desert to find all your wonderful subjects, the most patient photographer for waiting to have all the elements come together at the right time or have the largest horseshoe stuck in your @$$.

    On second thought, I think I'll go with perserverance and talent instead. That and an appreciation for good music.

    I think it's great but I almost would want to see an attempt with a telephoto going through these 2 windows and the 3rd of the secondary building just to see how it would turn out... just a thought I had.

    Briliant. I'm not really a fan of HDR but this is an awesome piece of art that reminds me of a Salvador Dali painting. I don't think I've seen a better work of art in a very long time.

    If I had to be critical it doesn't look like a photo to me, I find that with a lot of HDRs, hence my not being a fan of them. May be I need to get with the times. Hopefully I've put that well, it sounds insulting but it isn't meant to, I really do love the image, shapes, textures, colours, compositon, lighting. The pictures has so much depth it's almost 3D amd invites you to step right into the shot, rather than just looking at it.

    Awesome- Thanks Raymond!

    Thank you. Osmosis really works I guess.

    Thanks. I was attracted to the shadows and light in the scene.

    Sometimes I think if I hangout someplace long enough, something -not stupid- will happen. And I never remember to bring a cd.

    Sounds interesting. Might try it, I'm thinking about going by there again next week. Never did make it to my original destination.

    Yes. In the last 4 years I've only left twice and had to be pretty much dragged out.

    Thank you!

    My shots are about 50/50 single exposure RAW and HDR. I wanted to try something different with this. Glad it's seemed to work out.


    Thanks again everyone!
