I suspect the high pass was what gave me that impression. Again, nice work.
Welcome Roy, and nice shots of my former city. It looks like Photomatix at work. Am I wrong?
I like it as well. Nice diagonals and an interesting juxtaposition of ingredients. Thanks for posting it.
Thanks very much, ValDR.
I think number 3 is your best composition. Nice work.
The comments prompted me to redo it. I still seem to want dark shadows. Thanks for all the help.
Mersad, I'm glad that it inspired you, and yours is an interesting take on it. It's understandable that you substituted a more interesting sky....
Thanks for the comments, and thanks very much for the edit, abraxas. Your edit convinces me that I should boost the highlights a bit in the parts...
Critiques would be welcome.
Beautiful shots, Ian. I particularly like the second and fourth one.
I've lived in Arizona for thirty years and never made it there. Gotta get...
Very nice shot. Your eye seldom fails you.
Interesting work, as usual.
Nothing better to do much of anywhere, for that matter. :)
Very nice, Mersad.
Nice shot, and I agree that it's probably best in black and white.
Nice shot, Mersad.
