Canon 50mm f1.8

Double 8 because of the composition: unfortunately, the rocks and the sky are in competition (question of light and maybe colors, I think).

I think the combination is just right, almost like the rocks are "Waiting for the Sun". Has anyone ever taken a bad shot at Mono Lake?

Exceptional colors and composition. Certainly not a "typical" Mono Lake shot. My only question is the choice of aperture setting. Did you not have a tripod available? I am just wondering why f1.8 instead of f16 or f22 which are more typical for landscape shots.

Fabulous colours & textures. The rocks are positioned well in the frame. I would be more than happy with a result like this!

Chris,

 

I love that pic. I like how the clouds on the RHT corner balance the tufa formation on LHB corner and the awesome colors. I have some Mono Lake pics of my own in my portfolio but not as good as yours.

 

Carl,

 

I think probably Chris is just mentioning the type of lens when he says "Canon 50mm f1.8" and probably not the aperture he took the pic at.

Carl: I used a 50mm f1.8 lens, but the aperture was actually f5.6 (used a hyperocal with COC of 2.5). I had to use a relatively large aperture to "freeze" the clouds which were hauling butt... I shoot most of my landscapes at f5.6 or f8 to freeze the clouds and water as much as possible. Sorry for the consusion.

Very beautiful scene! I am just wondering if you've got another shot to the right. If yes, I can imagine the stiched (panorama-like) picture from the two may look even better. Or, how about using wideangle lens, say 28mm? Just would like to see more from the beautiful clouds on the right.

I think the combination is just right here also. The only thing I wish were different, is that the opening in the sky were not as large and blue/white. Great details on the rock formations.

I gave a nine for originality because I have a huge amount of respect for the landscape photographer finding the unique perspective and being there at the exact time for the best results. I gave a nine for aesthetics, and was thinking of giving you a ten, because this has form, texture, color, interest and playfullness, classic compositional excellence, and IMPACT IN EVERY DETAIL OF THE IMAGE.

I would give it a higher score if the levels were a bit lower and the cropping just slightly modified. I hope this sample of what I mean is acceptable.

I find the colors a bit pale here. I'd like this darker. Never mind about the details in the rocks imo. Regards.
