    I love this. As Larry said great pastel sky. I'm only somewhat bothered with the out of focus grass. I think it takes away from the silhouette. But still it's a great image.

    Unfortunately there is too much black dead space at top and bottom. Ideally, a graduated neutral density filter, a little more exposure, and a stronger telephoto would have produced a more interesting shot.

    It's from an area in South Dakota called the Badlands.

    The Badlands area is a National Park and looks alot like this in sunlight.

    Thanks. Yes, that's one of mine also.
    Every shot that I post, I took.

    The only time I would post a shot that's not mine, would be an edit of someone's shot that has asked for help with it.

    BTW, the colors in the Badlands shot "may" have been enhanced some.;)

    After a very quick tour of his smugmug account, I have no reason to doubt it was not his shot. Pretty cool stuff in the Scapes Gallery, Davey. :thumbup:

    Thanks.

    Some of the shots on the site go back 6 or 7 years.
    Hopefully I'm getting a little better with the camera and with PS.
