    So that's why your city has the word "Desert" in it! :lol:

    Those pictures look great! I always thought my mom was pretty good in the art of photography but now her pics look like one from a 5-year old. Nice work! 8)

    Absolutely. It's inevitable. For me, anyway. It's often hard to predict what's around the next curve. If I have the option, I try to keep footprints where the heaviest shadows are. In some (rare) cases, they add to the image by conveying scale and distance.

  • :roll: Is there some way to buy Mesquite Flat as a Big Picture with wooden frame to put on the wall at home. If so how much?
    I really like its simplicity and the color. It would be perfect above the sofa in livingroom.

  • Definitely. The easiest way would be to email the file to you, and you print it there. No shipping nonsense. I'll PM ya.

  • Great stuff as usual Crim. The "Self Portrait" is pretty clever. I'd like to have some of it on my walls too.

  • How did you make your pictures look like paintings? For example the sun in "progress" and the pic " Eureka Valley."
    I would love to have those 2. It symbolizes my goal to get to college and find a good job.

  • Thanks OG!

    If you're referring to the rays of light coming out of the sun in 'progress' I did nothing. If you count them, it comes to 14 evenly spaced light beams, and it's the result of my lens' aperture blades. There are exactly 14, and very bright light, such as the sun, will sneak through them to create that effect. It's inevitable if you shoot above your lens' maximum aperture.

    For "Eureka Valley", I set up a bulb exposure, which just means the shutter stays open for as long as you want (tripod required). In that case, The image exposed for 970 seconds. The streaks of light represent how much the earth spun in 970 seconds. The star in the upper right corner is Polaris (the north star). It doesn't move at all since it's due north of Earth's axis.
