[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday we took a short trip to the Writing On Stone Provincial Park, about 1 1/2 hours drive from our place. Climbing around in the Hoodoos, we took a lot of pictures, then went back to the car to have refreshments and to check the pictures out. For some reason, all memory on my camera had disappeared (roughly 100 images). So I re-formatted the card and we went back climbing again, retaking pictures. Christan had no problems, and for her contribution today, check out her picture here. The interesting thing is that you can interpret what these shapes look like in many different ways, depending on the angle and pov.
Adjusted in levels and curves, downsized.

This is a nice sharp image with good color and exposure. It's not a landscape one normally associates with Canada.
I would like a tad more space above the foremost hoodoo. The curve of the four hoodoos going back into the distance is nice.

Hi Otto.

Hello Otto

I agree with you,I see many things too,but overwhelmingly I see faces.Like an ancient Mount Rushmore.Very beautiful colours and contrast between the sandy colour and the blue sky.The details are well focused and sharp.Very nicely composed.TFS


Bonjour Otto,
Une belle photo de ces montagnes en pierre, good composition et un excellent POV. jolies couleurs and well capture photo..Salutations.

Hello Otto,
The colour palette is attractive and eye-catching!
Wonderful blue sky contrasts well with the rocks, which are captured with excellent details...
Attractive composition where the shady parts add interest value!

Hello Otto a fine composition very sharp contrasty details and good colour contrast good exposure tfs rgds Necip.

Hi Otto,
There is so much color and textures in these rock formations. Excellent play of light and shadow. The bright light is well managed. Colors are excellent, as is the detail. Nice shot!

Well done, Otto. I love this place in the blue sky, just like you've captured. I think I've gotten comments that I oversaturated the colors -- but that's just the natural colors, aren't they? This feels just a bit "tight" to me, but I often shoot with a very wide (10mm, lens).
