Really great stuff. A lot of those would make excellent large prints.

those antelope canyon shots are great. great light in there. it would be interesting to see if you go crazy on the vibrance and saturation sliders

Thanks! I always hope to make prints of images i've taken for home decoration. I think i have some winners with this trip.

There wasn't much light in there at all. Most of the images fall between 15 to 45 sec exposures. I was very surprised to see what colors the camera picked up compared to what my eyes saw.

The images where i've blown out a highlight or two don't look good with heightened saturation. Same for the ones with the sand floor visible But the more abstract ones don't look unbelievable even with loads of saturation. I chose to keep them in pretty much in line with the colors i saw when i used a flash light in there.

Here are some more....

I'm really digging these for some abstract art prints. Could have had a few more different looking images but my tripod didn't go any lower. These are all of the same section of rock from different angles.

Speaking of stars.... who here knows how to photograph stars? Is it possible to get an image of the stars and have them look sharp?
