Today I went up to the Cripple Creek area goldfields for my first shoot with the D800. Kept ten files from the shoot. This was my favorite. Minimal post-processing.

It's probably safe to assume that there WERE people in that frame at some point in history.  Just not when you made the image.  Rather than 'breaking' the rule, it's just bent a little around time.

Rus,

I'd be keen to see a mono conversion of that - I feel it may prove even more impressive.

To follow Rob's dictum:

I like it!

Also, I cannot see the name Cripple Creek without remembering the awful song about Cripple Creek, and then I remember the time I watched a rather beautiful girl taking her clothes off to that song for money. I have no idea why she sticks with me, but she does.

Walter, I was taken with the incredible color, but you're right, mono might be interesting. Here it is. The color version had only raw pre-sharpening. The B&W has no sharpening at all.

By the way, the rule I broke was always to wait at least a week before I concluded a picture is worth posting.

Count me in the b/w camp on this one. This version really brings out the precarious nature of the structure which will slide into oblivion sooner rather than later.

Russ, having now seen both renderings the B&W image is a remarkably dynamic image.

The composition of the image makes me feel like I'm the one about to slide into oblivion. I feel like I'm scrambling to keep to the right of the image. Interesting in this regard.

No, THAT song is awesome. The terrible one is by The Band and is called "Up On Cripple Creek". Well, it's not terrible, really. It's infernally catchy. INFERNALLY I TELL YOU.

Russ, I think your street background really shows here, and it works very well.

It's a landscape, but with a bunch of those "accidents" of geometry that drive so much of street.

I'm not going to critique beyond saying it's an average shot.

You see the advantages to my dictum? You get to imagine beautiful girls taling 'em off for you even if you have to part with a little hard earned in order to earn the experience that, in its turn, provides the memory. How much finer a thing to be paid to have 'em take 'em off and record 'em for posterity!

I dare risk this: the good olde days!
