If that's the case, I'd break out all the PS tricks in the book: vignetteing especially, but also a lot of brush work, some selective sharpening, and maybe a split-tone, all in the interest of moving our eye around the frame.
    Interesting concept. I will look at that. Although, it might be easier to reshoot with the given suggestions in mind when doing so.

    Finally got some printing done...here is one of the best. My old PhotoShop 5 won't work on my new Mac, so I used some lightweight software on the image...quality questionable. it holds up to about 10" wide on my screen.

    A 5.5"x14" platinum/palladium print. Zion National Park. Looking west towards sunset. Film exposed April 2019.

    Chamonix 11x14 with modified darkslide, Fuji W 360mm, no filter, FP4+ in PyrocatHD

    Print on HPR paper using warm Potassium oxalate developer. I am having some rust issues in my pipes -- got a black spot, so I'll probably reprint one of these days.

    Nice vantage point, Gary.
    Looks like a long lens and a multi-shot panorama might be fun to do from there...I do not know if using IR film would make that a bigger challenge.

    Vaughn, I keep coming back to look at your print. Would love to see it larger, or in person. I think I see the black spot, but it hardly detracts. Let me know if you want to dispose of the print though .

    I did shoot a couple of pano with my cellphone while I was playing around.

    Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Here is an image from Grand Canyon North this year. It is kinda emotional for me as are all of my Grand Canyon shots this year as i had been given a layoff notice just before I went. So it was hard to keep my head on straight standing on the edge of a 1000 foot drop off. But for the brief time waiting for the light to be right, etc, I was at peace but haunted at night with the possibility of losing everything and not being able to provide for my family and 7 year old son.

    4x5 using a Chamonix 45H-1, 75mm Nikkor f/4.5@f/32 on Portra160. I have my thoughts on the image, but waiting to hear. I need to find a better way to post images. flicker and zenfolio seem to over saturate color images on upload.

    Checkout the fuzzy rainbow on the far rim image center.
