    Country of Lost Borders

    Ute, Paiute, Mojave, and Shoshone inhabit its frontiers, and as far into the heart of it as a man dare go. Not the law, but the land sets the limit. Desert is the name it wears upon the maps, but the Indian's is the better word. Desert is a loose term to indicate land that supports no man; whether the land can be bitted and broken to that purpose is not proven. Void of life it never is, however dry the air and villainous the soil.

    Looks great abraxas. Not as good as the previous one you posted but still great.
    Just the corners of the image (especially bottom corners) gives it a sense of overexposure. But that might be because the background on the screen is white. On a darker background it might look good.

    I just saved it and viewed it with a black background. Looks much better. But still a tad over bright for my taste.

    That's a fantastic shot. But, I find the bright vignetting way too distracting. I've never been a fan of vignetting anyway so maybe it's just a taste thing.
