Terrific job, the colours are really great, did you polarize or did you work it on post production?

14 Sep 2010 4:19pm

@xavier cardell: Yes, I used a polarizer here. I often don't in the desert but, I wanted to pull the blue out of the sky and red from the rocks.

Excellent capture! The white deposits really add to the beauty of this image.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A PoV that makes it seem like any one of those rocks or gravel could come sliding down. The shaded area really emphasizes the salt's presence.

I'm not sure what I see here today - But I love the image - and I love the effect of the foreground - kind of a different color altogether.
