125 - The Present

































The body exists in the past and your mind exists in the future. Find a way to bring them together to enjoy the present. A place conducive for this is Rio Grande overlook in Big Bend National Park at sunset.

Very nice!

You may not know it, but this is one of those over-photographed places in the park. Yours differs nicely from the previous work I've seen in that you have beautiful warm directional light. Other photos I've seen (including shots of my own) are taken right after sunset when everything but the sky and river is dark.

I really like the directional light hitting the walls of the Hot Springs Canyon (upper right). I think you could bump up the brightness a tad and also the contrast here. It rhymes well with the Cottonwood trees just below it.

The Chisos and sky look dull and don't match well with the rest of the scene. I think if you increased the contrast a bit, that might help. Or perhaps you could try black and white - that would eliminate color issues.

Anyway, really great scene. I love it!
