This is from the window in the Desert Tower Museum on Rt 8 in California.
Some would say that a room with a view such as this represents true prosperity. This is taken from inside the walls of a miner’s stone cabin.
I used the Polarize paintbrush to improve the view out the window, and then touched up further with some burning and dodging. I also straighten and cropped.
The following photo shows the Stone Cabin as we approached it on foot.
I would have preferred to use the Canon SX10… but this was an unplanned excursion. Glad I always carry the little camera… although, it might have been better if I had also carried the spare battery on this day. Ugh!
This was taken October 26, 2008 at the Rhyolite Ghost Town outside Death Valley. This is the Cook Bank. I hope you can see the doors and windows in this picture (or is just me knowing what it is?)
This is also one that can be used for the mini-assignment: Viewpoint. I had taken several different pictures before I decided to stop trying to capture the whole bank structure, but instead to just trying standing in front and looking up.
