    Classic view - not easy to find a spot that doesn't have tripod holes from that viewpoint.

    Hey Ben, this is really cool. I don't worry about tripod holes myself, I see the beauty of a place and shoot it for myself and I don't worry if others have shot it. One thought I had is have you thought about B&W for this? With the clouds, I think those really lean towards a B&W, plus you might be able to add more separation between the hoodoos in B&W.

    The color is very nice, the monochrome is even nicer.

    Hey Ben, I really like this in B&W. But I think you should have left all of the sky in, part of what I liked when thinking about B&W was how cool those sweeping clouds would look very dramatic in B&W.

    Opps, I converted the wrong version. This was my print version, 16x9 crop. I will do another.

    180507-5267-5DS R b&w.jpg Ok, here is an uncropped version. This time I used Nik high structure harsh which did a better job with the clouds.

    Oh yeah, love what those clouds add. I would darken the blacks just a bit more in the whole image to add a bit more depth, then I would say you are good.

    For me personally, I don’t mind adding a bit more drama in a B&W then might have normally been there. It’s been done by all of the masters of B&W for many years.

    Taking a second look... I would darken the blacks in the sky a lot, and in the ground just a subtle nudge.

    What Jim said - with B&W you have a LOT more room to play with the image compared to color. Especially with the skies.

    I do like the last edit.

    Okay Ben, now for me you nailed this! I want a copy of this for my living room. :)

    Oh, and edit your title and add the words “+ Edit” so people know you have edited the original. Some people may not check back in on this to see the edits if you don’t tell them.

    Click on Thread Tools in the upper right of your original post, in the drop down menu you will see "Edit Thread" click on that and you will see where you can edit the title. I never thought of it before, but should get in there and change the wording to actually say Edit Title, because that's what that sub menu does.

    Gothca Jim, how come you can't edit the titles as part of a genreal edit?

    Looks like you did put the edit titles in though.

    The editing of the posts and how it’s split into 2 parts unfortunately is just the way it was designed by the designers. I have no clue on why they would have done it, but I do wish all of the editing for a thread/post was in one spot.
