Evidence of the inevitable transformation of things.  100 million year old rocks crumble, wash downhill, dry up and blow away.
Comments welcome but no psychoanalysis please.

Don't mistake lack of talent for genius.

Hi Chuck,

I really like the second one, it is a very pleasing abstract and very much the sort of thing I like to look at. The first one slightly less interesting and it looks a bit too crunchy and over sharpened to me. The third one has something, but I find the top right hand corner very distracting, it sort of lets you slide out of the picture, and the wide undefined shadows bottom left don't help I'm afraid - my advice should you wish to take it, is to always try to fill the frame with your subject, but first you have to decide what your subject is, however abstract it might be, then having done so, frame the shot but always pay special attention to the corners and try to avoid corner triangles if possible.

So I think #2 is a winner and is a great example of what can be done when you look for it, #1 is a near miss whereby the PP is a bit too much and has become distracting and I think #3 is a miss unfortunately - for me at least.

Dave

I agree with Dave that #2 is the most satisfying and complete image. I also find the other two interesting for the subject matter but not so much the composition.

Dave and Eric - Thanks for the feedback.  That's just what I was looking for.  These shots came from a really tough morning of trying to bring in the focus of what I was trying to say.  It was clearly not completely successful.  I've been back to these a couple of times because I have the lingering feeling that I was almost there.  Time to let them go and move on.

Paulo - Thanks for the geo-support.  As I think I noted in a comment on one of your shots, us geos see the world a bit differently.  Damn the composition, it's the rocks that count!  Grin
