... mountainous southern Californian desert.  The landscape, including the rocks, are hard to get tired of looking at.

Compositionally I'm struggling a bit to make up my mind on this one. Is it about the rocks in the foreground or about the background? I think if you crop off from the top left corner and come in about 10% on each edge that background will have less pull for my attention and I'll be more inclined to investigate the shapes of the rocks. 

 

Thanks for posting!

Thanks Dallas. It's about the foreground rocks, but I think it is a little tight there. All about the rocks, which are somewhat plain, and there is interesting stuff behind it that one can't see (but it is great if you're a rock lover :)). I am afraid that if I crop any more that it will be really boring... ahh.

 

Thanks for taking a look!

Whilst rocks fascinate me, I find them really hard to work well as a photograph.  I think they are the one form of landscape where I find a figure is worth including.

I see what you mean Chris - perhaps they only work as a supplement vs. main subject.  Will keep this in mind for next time I am there, which is prob in two weeks..

I enjoyed that (and I agree with his assessment).

Yep, decent article. Seems the author applies an old issue (which still applies) to a different situation, really: what do you put in the 'foreground?'  He uses a city as an example, but there are so many excellent shots out there of beautiful mountains, etc. that lack a foreground subject. I used to joke with a friend that I need to find a model who will follow me around out there for that.
