Visted Ayers Rock for some panoramic shots with my 6x17 Film camera and captured this with the 20D. Only changes to raw file was very small amount of sharpening and saturation. Basically everything is exactly as seen at the rock. Stunning place to be at dusk/ sunset and is different every time I have been there.

Minor banding in sky is due to low quality of jpegs so as to keep within the posting limits

Lens used on 20D was a Sigma DG 12-24mm with polarizing filter. Its as good as an L in my opinion

Regards

Clipper

Wow, what an odd rock formation. :S

I like the colours of the rock though. They contrast well against the sky.

Really nice shot. I love the way the rock stands out like it's been lit up. Was this intentional in your pp? The colours a great though and exposure is perfect.

If I had to pick a negative I'd say there's a bit too much empty sky.

Thats probably as much cloud as you would get in that part of Australia.

Nice picture of Ayers Rock but it always looks good to me. I like the foreground colours in this picture, they look great.

I was implying that some of the sky should be cropped out.

Another One....Ayers Rock - Outback Australia

Here is another shot a little earlier on in the day. The Rock changed color at least 3 times during the day from noon to sunset.

Again "Good One"

The foreground in this shot is more so how I imagined it would look like. But like wise I do like the colour in your first post.

I prefer the conposition of the second. But I prefer Uluru itself to be lighter so it stands out more.

Nice shot. There looks to be a horizontal line of noise or artifacting in the sky though - maybe something you introduced during PP by accident?

Its the jpeg compression used to fit within the posting rules. Sometimes creates a banding effect

Tried compression slightly differently by adjusting size quality etc in PS rather than export from lightroom.

you know the guys are right when they say you should crop it either from the sky or from the ground...also I imagine you could have added interest by lowering the camera closer to the ground

the colors are unreal
