Creative Interpretations - Grand Canyon View

Ever been to the Grand Canyon? I was about 18 years old when I went and even at that cynical age all I could say was "WOW". My son took this pic on his 'pilgrimage' to nature's version of the "Big Dig"

I went to LAB color and brought up the colors a lot, then back to RGB. Sharpened and then did the Notepaper filter and set to overlay. Adjusted the blown out sky to a soft sunset color.

Enjoy!

Re: Creative Interpretations - Grand Canyon View

I was also 18 when I visited the Grand Canyon, before I went there I think I even made a comment along the lines of "why would I want to go look at a big crack in the ground?" Of course, I found out why when I got there... I was mesmerised! A stunning place to see 'in the flesh'.

Almost 'jewelesque', Peter. Very unique look.
OB... Good one. The foreground rocks have a real feeling of weight and grit.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Grand Canyon View

The people standing to the left in the shot give you an idea of just how gigantic this place is. The ranger told us, (when we were there a few years ago), that many of the animals and the vegetation living near the top are completely different from those you see near the bottom. Quite a sight.

Chalk it up to my southern upbringing and my parents who preached "If you don't have something nice to say..." LOL

Great brush strokes Steve.
