Nevada, I am going for mood here; I thought these were great rock formations.

This image has great lines and impressive detail, but for me I find it a LITTLE too dark - I find myself wondering what's still hidden in the shadows...

Quite nice. I like the tones, but don't know if I would have guessed it was a photo of rocks. Doesn't matter what it is, because it looks to me like alligators joined together and piled. Great texture, in the realm of abstract.

Very creepy-crawly. I like it! I suspect that more detail in the shadows would spoil the mood.

I came back to this one a few times.  I think that your current presentation would look best printed big (at least 24x36"), given that there's so much detail here- I could spend 5 minutes looking at just one of the rocks!  If you plan to print smaller, you might want to crop the foreground a bit.  Either way, well done!

Maybe that's what I find so attractive about it. Amazing detail, Andres: what kit were you using?

Great rock formation and nice, crisp detail.  I personally would like to see more of the surroundings.  It's very pleasing as-is though.  Nice job.  ZBy the way, I agree with button.  This would look great as a nice big print.

Thanks, I kind of liked the mistery in the shadows, the information is there in case I wanted to open them up a bit.
Thanks again.

Thanks John, it reminded me a bit of the Alien movie in the spaceship

Hi Jeremy, my gear is not very fancy..a Canon Rebel with a 15-85  IS Lens. I did use a small tripod for this one.
Thanks.

I have to say, I like the new one even more than the first version. The tones, high and low, and the larger context, are just excellent.
