This shot was taken while I was at Zabriskie Point. I swung around to the East (behind me) to take this shot with the crescent moon. I used Photomatix Pro to make a psudo HDR and added a ND grad layer in photoshop to balance the shot using Nik Photo Efx Pro 3.0.

I lik it for the colours. Th composition is balanced,althought not in the rules of three parts. VALERIO

Very nice Michael,

I like the use fo the sloping ridges entering the valley and the inclusion of the moon. I think a bit of the top might strengthen it but all-in-all, a very impressive effort.

I do love the detail of the ridges. A little off the top to move the horizon off center would add to this image.
