    Great photo – the sun on the mountains in the background and those clouds overhead are fantastic.

  6. Fantastic shot. I love the clouds. They’re giving a lot of drama to the photo. Great job Bashar πŸ™‚

  7. Wonderful shot, but it immediately screamed HDR at me. It’s a great technique, but personally it tends to jangle my senses pretty much when it’s this obvious. Take that with a grain of salt since I know so many folks are totally enchanted with it.

    • I love honest people… its your opinion, I respect it and I know what you mean :)… I intentionally pushed things on this image, just wanted to have fun with it!! Thanks for the honesty, I really appreciate it πŸ™‚

      • Good! I’m glad we’re still friends! πŸ˜‰

        • Of course… seriously I won’t get better if I can’t accept criticism. If you saw my very first HDRs you would puke… but its people feedback that made realize I wasn’t there.
          I would love it if you let me know when you don’t like an image… you can leave a comment as simple as: “Not today” and I’ll get it and we’ll still be friends πŸ™‚

          • continuing on a serious note… there are people who seem to really like the extreme HDR, but as you noted my personal preference is not to overdo it. I think much of it is strictly individual taste, though I can’t help but wonder how much of it is the thing of playing with a new toy?

    You show me a bit of the USA, of your neighbourhood & I find that fascinating! It is a bit like travelling from your desktop!

  11. awesome hdr… astonishing clouds

  12. A different view from what we are used to seeing. I like it! One can see the geologic nature of the hills and from where you took the pic is obviously a very popular place and great for a picnic (I see the blanket and basket there….). Liked.

  14. I’m hoping to go up there and to the L.A. Zoo on July 20.

    • I didn’t know LA had a zoo until a few days ago via some other blog!!

      July 6, 2012 at 7:13 am

      • It’s always been second to the San Diego Zoo because they are just 100 miles apart and the San Diego Zoo got started earlier. I haven’t been since 1973, though. Same with all of Griffith Park; last visit was 1973.
