This is another wonderful image, full tonality and great gradations. Seriously, Ansel would be happy with this one.

Reply john8276 on March 10, 2013 at 8:35 pm Thanks Victoria Reply Shaun on March 10, 2013 at 6:55 pm Outstanding work, John. I love the way the light strikes the face of the dune from the right, then spills down the left side, picking out every ripple and detail in the sand. The best B&W image I’ve seen from you to date. Didn’t realize I was sitting next to a photographic colossus at lunch yesterday! Reply john8276 on March 10, 2013 at 8:35 pm Thank you Shaun but the only thing colossal about me is my weight…. 🙁 Reply Mimi Mann on March 10, 2013 at 7:33 pm Super, John. Must be from the black and white class in Death Valley!!!! Reply john8276 on March 10, 2013 at 8:34 pm Why thank you Mimi. Yes, Chuck was fantastic! Reply James Milligan on March 10, 2013 at 10:57 pm John, really great B&W conversions of the dunes. Wanted to be their, next time if it happens. Jim Reply Karl on March 11, 2013 at 2:33 am John, Very nice! I like how you captured the shadows and highlights and how they change the dunes into shapes and lines. I am working on my versions now. Again, another great workshop! Reply john8276 on March 11, 2013 at 2:34 am Thanks Karl. Always good to have you along. Reply Daniel Ruf on March 11, 2013 at 11:24 am A beauty, John. Reply Alice Olive on March 11, 2013 at 6:52 pm Blows me away. It’s other-worldly (or perhaps moon-ly)! Reply john8276 on March 11, 2013 at 6:53 pm Thanks Alice.
