Red Rocks

Heres what was part of a bigger stitch. I didnt like the wide format so cropped it down to this. Reso is still pretty good… it was 30cm x 30cm at 300dpi.

Dont know which I prefer…..

    Love the coloured one – especially the dusk feeling to it. Fantastic shot.

  4. Great shots Dylan. Damn its a hard one to pick, but I would lean to the duo tone one. Reason the scenery reminds me of the old wild west scenes.

    Cant wait to get back to the Canyon Lands in the US in 09.

    Thanks Rob! Always appreciate hearing what people think of my work!
    Check out my site for more images… http://www.dylanfox.com.au

    Neal the second is a B&W but to me it did look duo… i dunno why…. maybe i the conversion the white slider was a bit towards the red….

    I cant wait to get back either mate! I am yet to get out of SF airport so that is a place I would love to go! I would love to get some canyon shots as well!
    I still need to get out to freo for another shoot god damn!!!

    cheers mate!
    I feel very lucky to have made it to the states and europe already! Pitty I wasnt into photography when I went to Europe a few years back! Was there to perform in 15 concerts in three weeks! VERY LONG 3 WEEKS!

    Yeah I dont know which One I prefer…. maybe if the b&w had a tinge of red…..

  10. very nice shot’s Dylan.
    i like the colour more but the B/W is still pretty decent.

    it must feel unusual to have a location like that and still only just be out of the city you can see in the background. anywhere in Oz like this would be in the middle of nowhere!

  11. I prefer the colour version and really like that! Your duotone conversion is nice but since it’s a sunset shot there’s is very little contrast without colour so the duotone version is slightly flat. Perhaps a bit more contrast.

    I know it may hurt the composition but I would love to see a version with the right side cropped a bit so the city doesn’t show in the frame. I hate civilisation 😀

    Your right Flemming. The conversion was always gonna lack the contrast compared to colour, but all in all it came out pretty nice for a sunset conversion i think….
    Yeah the city wasn’t ideal but I dont really wana crop this photo down any more than i already have.
    Cheers mate
