More than one person has made a comment about the stream photo I posted earlier in the week. They were surprised that with all the grand landscapes I saw and photographed that was the first I chose to post -- I guess it was a purely random choice. As a photographer you like to get into those small intimate shots before you tackle the big vistas. And as I look over my photos from this trip, I realize how easy it is to get caught up shooting static landscapes without much flow and thought to the composition. I tried to break myself of that with the photo above. It's from Deadhorse Point -- a Utah state park, very close to Canyonlands National Park in Moab. This one stood out to me because I think there are some interesting compositional elements and flow through the image -- the twisted tree, arcing stone wall, canyon plateaus and walls, and the La Sal Mountains on the horizon. Five bracketed images merged together with Photomatix Pro, base exposure shot at f/11, 1/320 sec at 22mm; a few tweaks and some sharpening added in Photoshop.
