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.
