Out of Place

This was taken at Valley of Dreams in New Mexico.

Any feedback is always appreciated.

Chris: A really nice find and a good solid comp and capture. Besides the contrasting colors I also like the contrasting textures. Nicely done. >=))>

Thank you very much for your comprehensive feedback. Nice to know what is working in the photo.

Chris, the single brown leaf against all of that cracked mud looks good. The color contrast and that nice wiggly line work well here. It does seem noisy, which would seem reasonable in the ground, but it’s also in the leaf, which surprises me.


The “leaf” is actually a rock. I can see the confusion. I tried to smooth it out and make it look a little less noisy, but was only moderately successful.
