    Had a great trip through Arizona a few weeks ago. Very amazing place. These are some of my first attempts at anything beyond a snapshot. let me know what you think!

    Always looking for improvement\tips - if you see anything I can improve on (should take about a milisecond) let me know! :D

    The first, not much. The last two, very much. The second is in between the first and last two. Just messing with you- I like the last the most.

    The first two have the ground too dark, but the last two are exposed pretty well. Composition on all 4 is good, though the wall in number 1 does not do much for me.

    I agree, I like the last one the best too. It looks almost surreal, and like you said in your title, 'painted'. I'm thinking you could make the colors pop a little more, though?

    Hmmm, I thin I went too far on the post processing, but I wanted to see if #4 had a bit more potential. Here's my take on it:

    I actually think that I like the top half of #1 best, but cropping that way would completely misses the fact that you were at the painted desert!
