    Beautiful. Try to think of how many water must have gone over that rock, to make it shaped like this. I love how you can see it's worn by the water.

    Very nice! Excellent DOF and very sharp!

    What kind of post processing did this image through?

    Great shot. IMO it's slightly under-exposed. I think you could have brought out more shadow detail without pushing the highlights into Zone 9.

    thanks !!

    although zone 9 has to be seen on paper NOT a monitor, and it doesn't have a lot of bearing to dslrs, I know what your trying to say.

    I was a little hesitant to think it would ruin the mood of the pic, I just
    played a little more with it and brought out those details.
    Thanks for the tip. I guess I had a little more latitude available then I thought.

    Quite the contrary, my friend. One should convert as if they were printing. Then again, that's just my personal opinion.

    I totally agree about developing for prints, but the zone system itself is kinda archaic and outdated for todays equipment. The basic

    idea behind it, yes I totally agree, .....

    You have a good eye, I didnt notice I had enough latitude left !!!!!
