The Phallic Rock + Edit

New Video today on Passport Sunday!

Today for Passport Members, you’ll get to see my decision process for choosing the composition of today’s photo as well as the edit. I still have so many “old” photos from Utah to edit, and I kind of randomly pulled this one off the pile.

Editing this photo from Utah

In this video, I’m with Harriett again as I go through about 20 photos I took of this rock to pick my favorite composition. You can see how I am sometimes indecisive on the scene, but then later when I get back in LR, I take my time and go through the options. After I choose my favorite one, I do some simple edits in Aurora HDR.

Daily Photo – The Phallic Rock and Edit

This is some Wile E. Coyote kinda rocks going on here, eh? I'm still amazed that formations like this can exist. You know it gets so windy and stormy there. You'd think a big stiff wind would just topple that thing over, right? And there's another rock barely hanging on back there on the left as well. There were quite a few tourists around too… I was wondering how scary it would be if the rock chose a moment to topple over while there was a gaggle of selfie-taking tourists down below.
