    Centralised compositions have their place. In fact isn't the asymmetrical composition something of a photographer's cliche? The saying "Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men" carries a lot of truth. The colours give this shot potential. Have you done a rescue job on the sky?

    Regards, Tony

    This was the best of the bunch. The sky helped the comp quite a bit actually. I shot them sort of half-asked throughout my trip and realized after I got home that I should have put forth more of an artistic effort. Curses.

    I also shot these all on auto-everything. I had just bought my d70 and was used to just p&s like I've done for years for my website. With finally getting my PS skills into a reasonable arena, I am able to use some of these in my current -art- project.

    Yes, the sky was a bit blown upper mid-left. I applied a warming filter and did a little burning. Wish I would have shot these RAW. Wish I would've done a good job. Wish I'd win the lottery (is that three?).

    Thanks for the reminder on the comp. I'll be in Sedona for part of the 4th of July weekend. I hope to take much better photos this time than the last time with my P&S.

    The sky is dramatic. You mentioned a warming filter, was it polarized as well?

    I have a photo of Coffee Pot Rock that you may be interested in, I'll post it when I run into it. I'm looking forward to your take on the area.

    Thanks. The sky was a bit blown out, but still had a slight bit of color. I used a photoshop filter to bring the color out and used athe burn tool at about 12% to blend it in some. The ONLY thing I did right on my photos that trip was leave the circular polarizer on the lens.
