.As for all the renditions of the image in this thread I am surprised no one really broke out of the conventional (except for ducks and bathing beauties that we now know are not allowed). I mean really squirrel it up in some abstract way.

Maybe not that abstract, and probably not that talented, but here's something...

Looks like an old photographers vs. journalist(?) argument...

Perhaps that's a fair way to categorize my thoughts on photography - based more on journalism than creativity after the fact.  To me, if I can't go and stand where you stood and see what you saw, it's not a photograph, it's something else.  And there's nothing wrong with that - I'm not saying what people in this thread have is UGLY or undesirable, I'm just saying that they've crossed the line out of photography and into something else.  Some rely so heavily on post processing to make something interesting that they should not call themselves photographers, but post processors.  For me, photography is about capturing a moment.  If you post process the bejeezus out of something, that moment is gone and something else has taken it's place.  A fake moment, that never existed.  And again, THAT'S OKAY - I'M NOT JUDGING THAT.  I'm just saying that it's not really photography - it's a different form of art.

Here's my take; tried to keep it as natural as possible with slight tint of my interpretation of sunrise colours and not an overdone sky, keeping the interest on the amazing rock formations.



I didnt realize ducks could live in that part of the country. What species is it? The rubberitis duckyitis? It reminds me of an old b movie with overgrown creatures.

It's a rare species named Brobdingnagian Geolu Anatidae, super rare, sort've like the Loch Ness and Big Foot.

Just my interpretation.  Disclaimer: I didn't take this picture.  Processed with DPP's HDR tool.  If I were to take this picture, I'd be bringing a GND and/or take bracketed pictures so I can be sure the highlights aren't overblown.  I'm having a slow internet connection thus I lowered down the resolution.

Processed in LR4.  Played with tone curve to bring out the details.  The scene seems not leveled to me so I distorted the image quite a bit.
Don't take life too seriously; no one makes it out alive anyway

Processed in Camera Raw 7.4. Not too much color added though. Just some adjustments to get rid of the haze.

Having started in the 70's,I can only thank goodness for the ability to change the 'reality' that we have caputured,So much time has been spent in darkrooms that need now not happen,photography for me has always been my artform,some of us are not gifted with the ability to pick up a brush or a lump of clay to create their art,photography is after all'painting with light',having veiwed recently the touring Cartier-Bresson exhibit ,I believe that style of reportage picture making as well as modern photojournalism to be the only remaining styles with the constraints as you see them,as we will never see what another saw,even if viewing a print,what can be called photography

Processed with Camera Raw 7.3. In addition to some basic adjustments (White balance, Contrast, etc.), some gradient filters were used.
