Horseshoe Bend Crack
« on: March 13, 2019, 01:08:35 PM »

I was looking for a way to get something different from the iconic photos many have published from this venue. The image title helps one with interpretation, I think.
C&C welcome.

I like it! If you didn't say I would have no idea it's the horseshoe bend though.

Nice and different, Dave.

Nitpick: in the upper right-hand corner, along the transitions between the sunlit part and the shadow, I think I see an excessive Clarity artifact?

Thanks for the comments, guys.
Armand, yes, it would just be some more red rock without the title.
Slobodan, I agree that transition is problematic; I'll see if I can tone it down a little more. Also, the image is an HDR merge of three frames, hand held at f/8, f/11, and f/16 so that might have something to to with it. The compression and sharpening script I use (4892px to 800px on the long side) might have increased the artifact; seems less obvious on the full image, but you know how it is when you spend a lot of time looking at the same thing.
Plus, don't forget the shadow was moving due to earth's rotation!  ;)
