Entry 6 of 36
   
 
buckskin gulch       ©2018 elliott
Canon EOS M       6th place, 117 points
1/500s, f3.5, ISO 320, 205mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: adjust highlights, slight sharpen, resize       Extra Info: do a google search for this place. this was part of a four day hike in paria canyon with one of my sons. a permitted entry system. after this point we only crossed paths with four other hikers. almost forty miles of deep slot canyons, and high desert also. early june during heat wave. crazy, beautiful, desolate, brutal, test of endurance. i'd do it again!

    Awesome formation! I love the rich red colour. You have done a good job to get detail in the shadows without washing out the lighter parts. In my faves.
And thanks for the tip to do the Google search. What a treat. Unfortunately that's likely to be as close as I ever get to this marvel.

    Impressive place, and you captured it nicely. The person in the image is what really gives the sense of proportions, well done there!

    Amazing journey and test of endurance. This is a wonderful photo, made so much more impressive by the addition of figure in the foreground to show the size of the canyon. Great colour and detail.

    Love the reflected light off the rock face - it almost glows. What a fantastic trip, I can see why you would do it again.

    These are so hard to get right but you have done it so well. My top pick.I love the glow in the lower distance.

    Marvelous use of the individual to give a perspective on the depth of the cavern. Wonderful colors and use of the available light. In my TT's.

    Impressive shot ! The human body give the scale and contribute to the impressiveness

    Impressive place. Reducing gamma and contrast would bring out more color in the canyon wall.

    magnificent area in and around Zion - I was there yrs ago (when I might have considered a several mile hike on a dry, scorcher day...

    Impressive!! Excellent choice to have a person (your son?) in the shot, as it really emphasizes the true depth of the canyon.

    I'd like to see the person a bit more prominently. As is, this is just a very pretty rock formation.
