    I hope you were able to find a rock free spot to pitch your tent.

    I like this one. Actually I like most of them but this one speaks to me, I think it is saying "come visit, you'll like it here". :clap

    For me, it's the very definition of solitude. What a wonderful photograph.

    I'm glad you all like it. It was very lonely out there - just the kind of campsite I search for.

    Here is the color version of the HDR. I took this one before sunrise.

    And here is the same campsite from another direction.
    The location was in Death Valley overlooking Badwater.
    Bring a decent air mattress.

    Thanks Dave. I'm trialling Photomatix. This is using the default setting. I like it, it's subtle. Brightens up the colours and lightens the dark areas.

    Nice! There are just some shots that beg to be worked up in B&W... I'm betting Dave at least looked at this one... thanks for the rework, I like the results!

    It is a great picture that sends a message to the soul. To me, it is saying "We rest here tonight. But tomorrow morning we will see where that road will take us."

    Dave did a splendid job of minimizing the bike, yet giving it sufficient presence to contribute to the overall theme of the photo.

    Thanks Dexter. I hadn't considered that one for B&W.


    Awesome MotoGP shots Jim! You are using HDR with wonderful results. I really like your hot rod shots on your FB.

    It's cloudy and a bit of a light drizzle outside, but still nice to go out for a quick ride

    I really like that. For me the colors are very pleasing and the bike makes it fun. Out of curiosity could you show us the original?
