Waited all afternoon for the sun to go down between the clouds and never could 'find the shot' this canyon edge shot was the best I got.

It would be great if you could tell me what lens you used for the shot.
Thanks.

Work with what you get, Doug.
I understand, waiting around for something amazing and the sun doesn't do what you want, so you end up thinking you got a mediocre shot.
The fact is, you got a wonderful shot. It looks great! You are looking thru eyes that expected something else, We are looking at it thru eyes that appreciate the incredible beauty you have captured.

Excellent capture. KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

I don't know why the EXIF is stripped, sorry about that. Shot with a Canon 7D using a Canon 24mm - 70mm f2.8 lens set at 24mm and f8 with 100 ISO at 1/10 of a second.

Does that answer your question?

Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a mediocre shot. I think it's a great shot. It's not the shot I had planned in my head or anything like what I was expecting to get.

I managed to get exactly two good shots of the 'perfect light' that afternoon and I felt lucky and happy I was able to get those.

It's like fishing, sometimes you catch good stuff and sometimes you go home with nothing.

I'm glad you like the shot, it was my first try at 'canyon edge' shots and I really liked how it came out.

Doug, I like this POV! I really enjoy the layered cliff outcroppings that seem to step back to infinity.

Being the in the right place at the right time is about 80% of the equation. Well done!

It is frustrating when mother nature does not cooperate, but you did not come away empty handed. Nice!


Best, Bruce

Yes, and no.
First, I love the shot and wish I could get something like that.
Second, school me on what EXIF is and how do I see it?
Thanks.

Thanks.

EXIF stands for: Exchangeable Image File and most of today's digital cameras report shutter speed, exposure, etc. and include that information along with the time the image was captured, the camera used, if a flash was used and a bunch of other stuff.

If you right-click most images you will get a set of options, one of which is "view image EXIF information" and if the information has not been stripped out by photoshop or some other program you can see what and how the image was shot.

That is very over-simplified way of explaining it, but the best I could do.

I hope that helps.

I tried to get a shot on this side of the canyon, but mother nature and the sun wasn't helping me out at all.

EXIF was stripped off this image also, so everything is the same except 1/100 shutter speed and f9 hand held (the other shot was on a tripod).

Thanks Doug!
I just got a Canon 10-22 for my 40D today. I will be heading for western Colorado for vacation this year. I hope to get some images half as nice as yours.

The 10mm - 22mm canon lens is a great lens, I use mine all the time and love, love, love it for all kinds of things. (does that read as gay as it sounds when I say it out loud? maybe add a really deep voice when you read it, or go the other way and add a lisp)
