    I like the colors and the different layers. Not sure about including all of the foreground though. Maybe crop it as a pano?

    I like it. The texure of the foreground adds to the scene I think. What is it, a salt flat of some kind?

    Very nice. I wish you had at least a blue/yellow filter or 81A warming with you that day...

    Thanks- this was wrapping up a four day trip and I'd covered about 200 miles of backcountry roads. I would have liked to have been there earlier, but my timing was good and I had as good of lighting as I could have gotten. I thought the hills looked a bit ~radioactive.

    Thanks Mike, Pugna. A crop would have some potential, but it was shot for a slideshow presentation of the desert lake system of the pliestocene--of which playa (dry lake) surfaces are a featured subject. I worked well into the twilight and got some nice shots of the layered strata in some of the thicker pieces of the dried mud a few hundred yards to the left. Walking around on the curled sediments was disturbingly crunchy and felt somewhat sacrilegious.

    Instead of filters I'd rather have had a big-ass joint and an extra day.

    :lmao: Not so sure about the joint part, but i'm with you on the filters. I'm old school, i'd much rather let nature do as much of the work as possible.

    Very nice! I always like textured surfaces.

    Sorry, but here's an idea in case you have a chance to go back there... at night.
    Long exposure to capture the star trail, maybe 20-30min or so. You also illuminate the ground with different colored dim lights from different angles which will be caught by the textures. I can just imagine the contrast in motion vs static and colors between the star trails and the colored ground texture... just an idea.
