Getting ready for my upcoming Death Valley trip in 10-12 days I've been going through some old photos so I can see what I need to approve on, look at angles and anything else I can pick up to help me out.

I came across this shot I hadn't posted before because I thought it sucked. But thanks to technology it's quickly becoming a fave. I plan on spending the night at Racetrack De Playa shooting the Milky Day and then hopefully another series at Eureka Dunes. That's if my new 24-105mm L lens gets here in time. The hills in the background are 12 miles away and the dunes 4 miles. You can also see Stovepipe Wells just above the dunes on the left side.

Nothing like the "golden hour". What a beautiful shot.

thanks guys. It just seems funny to me how something can slip past one, then months or years later become a favorite.

I think you should include less of the background. The shadows and light on the dunes are good enough to stand by themselves I think.

I agree, maybe 1" off the top.

Lovely light! Perfectly exposed. I would suggest removing a bit from below.


Cheers, Helen

You guys! A bit from below, a bit from the top! LOL It is what it is ;-)a At first I actually had this as a HDR panorama, I think I took around 30 shots, but decided to make it a single non-HDR shot..

Well, I think you should make it a vertical format. Oh,... never mind. It's nice just the way it is.

Dave; please post back on the conditions at the Racetrack. I'd like to know if it's completely dry or not! My next trip out there I too want to spend some time in the dark at Racetrack!
