To papagolf21: Racing away

Dear Philippe,

I enjoyed the rush of the water churned by the hidden and not so hidden rocks. However, any noise made at this location was drowned by the roar of the Chocolate Falls as the...

To ifege: Papago Ponds

Hi Ian,

It was a dawn expedition to the park as I wanted to test out my new (albeit used/"previously owned") 16-35mm lens. Obviously, I'm happy with the results, though I'll give the sun, clouds,...

To jemaflor: Papago Ponds

Hi Jean,

It was a great morning to be trying my new (albeit used) lens for the first time. The clouds, sun, and landscape cooperated in the process making it an enjoyable outing.

Thank you for...

To jimmyjimmy: Framed Peaks

Hello Jimmy,

Yes, to the north and east of the San Francisco peaks.

I agree, the Grand Canyon is a major lure pulling visitors north and to it, but I'm now finding many more places to visit in...

To drt100: Pushed by the sun

Hi David,

I debated whether or not to post this photo due to the amount of sun streaks and dots. In the end I decided I liked the effect and posted it. Of course, by that time, I'd been opposite...

To jemaflor: Grand (Chocolate) Falls 2

Hi Jean,

Yes, the color is amazing and unbelievable until you arrive. Then, after you pick your jaw up, it's time to get to work with your camera. I'm hoping to get there when the water flow is...

To ifege: Grand (Chocolate) Falls 2

Hi Ian,

Apparently the color is constant whether or not it's directly after a storm. My trip was 4 to 5 days after the last storm and, if I remember correctly, down to about 16 cu ft/min.

I'm...

To drt100: Grand (Chocolate) Falls 2

Hello David,

It's something you read about and even see photos of, but until you're there it's hard to believe the water really is that color.

Thank you for your critique,
Mark

To jemaflor: Rowing into gold

Hi Jean,

Thank you for your kind critique. It was kind of the rowers to align with the sun's light river on the lake. It was a beautiful morning for photography.

Warm regards,
Mark

To ifege: Hanging garden

Hi Ian,

I'll blame the lens, not the photographer. :)

I did try to balance the need for greater exposure in the shade against blowing out the highlights with a mid-range f-stop, but probably...

To jimmyjimmy: Tempe Municipal Building

Hello Jimmy,

I'm jealous of your bird's eye vantage point, but suspect you've got your hands too full to be busy with a camera on final approach. I was a bit surprised I actually captured a/your...

Hello David,

Thank you for your kind critique.

I've been debating posting another photo, taken with a telephoto lens of just the water/sun reflection patterns, but don't know whether that...

To Royaldevon: Hanging garden

Hello Bev,

It isn't so much a difficult place to reach as having the right vehicle to get there.

I've recently seen another photographer's photo from White Pocket and it made me jealous as he...

To jemaflor: Framed 2

Hi Jean,

I'm glad you like these views of the Grand Canyon. In this one I was worried that the rock on the right dominated the image and considered cropping the photo to a squarer format.

Thank...

Hello Gy,

Thank you for your critique and, especially, giving me a name for the technique. It's one I've brought from my underwater photography where it was called close-focus-wide-angle, though...

Hello Jimmy,

Thank you for the kind critique.

It's not only the perfect spot, but those few minutes when the sun isn't washing out the subject and everything is lit as you want it.

To federico: A river runs through

Hello Federico,

Sometimes you can't ask for better light and composition, and this felt like one of those times. It's almost as it came from the camera - I just adjusted the white balance and...

To drt100: Tree on the edge

Hi David,

Thanks for the sympathy and the workshop. I'd thought about cloning out the flare/sun streak, but I always hesitate making a change to the image as significant as it was for this image....

While I wasn't there for the photography, an afternoon side trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon was a real bonus. There will be a few more of the photos taken as I hiked the...

Hi Jean,

Thank you for your kind critique. It was a challenge to balance the strong contrasts, to match the automatic iris operation of my eye, so I really appreciate it when you say it was well...

To francescopalla7: Desert View Dawn

Hello Francesco,

It's an amazing place to visit, one that seems to demand days, not hours just to view, much less choose the locations and times for one's photos.

Thank you for your critique.
