  #191 Rocks Star!
Entry 18 of 21
   
 
Rock of ages       ©2017 breadmaker
Panasonic DMC-FZ72       18th place, 18 points
1/1600s, f4, ISO 160, 58mm, Landscape, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: lighten shadows
crop and resize
      Extra Info: An ancient dolmen (burial chamber) probably 3-4000 years old at least. This structure was fenced off to the public so I was unable to get an unobstructed view of the base or indeed an alternative angle.

    Nice detail in the rocks. I didn't realize how large they are until I spied the figure through the central opening.

    Agree that I should have cropped out more of the sky. The bottom of the picture was cropped to exclude an ugly fence.

    It's nice that you give its backstory. I would've crop the upper portion to emphasize more of the rocks.

    Thanks for your comments. Access to the structure was not allowed and I had to compose the shot over a perimeter fence whist in a moving vehicle, hence the lack of foreground.

    Timeless. Well taken given the circumstances.

    Great subject for the challenge. I like the lighting and the low angle. The Dolman feels like it is dropping out of shot to me. Maybe a tighter crop/ less above? or was it possible to include more foreground ?

but on theme

    Wow, 3-4000 years old! Amazing. I think the composition could be improved but as you stated, you had limited access to it.

    Considering our theme, I think this should have been cropped to a 16x9 format to reduce the amount of sky and put more emphasis on the rocks. Good find!
