Behind the scenes confession: how long did it take you to push that rock to get just the right composition? Have you ever been cited by the BLM for rearranging the landscape for photographic composition purposes?Inquiring minds want to know what is going on behind the curtain of Oz. How many Starbucks does it take to get the creative engine running before the sun rises? Just kidding, of course, applause, applause! Now, I am getting back on the ventilator, since this Vieri piece takes my breath away.

A magnificent photograph, beautifully seen, composed, shot and processed, but I submit that in order to show the full grandeur & majesty of the place, the Racetrack constitutes one of the few classic landscapes that consistently work better in color. To my eyes, no B & W version can ever capture the incredibly subtle, magical shades that exist briefly at day's first light or during 'magic hour' at the end of the day.

 

Please do not interpret this as criticism of the above image, but I've visited and photographed the 'racetrack' many times and find that color captures the spirit and character of the location more definitively.

Hello John,

 

thank you for your comment, I am glad you enjoyed it. About colour vs B/W, I do both and love both equally, for the Racetrack. To me, the light and tones of the playa and sky work fantastically well in colour; at the same time, the graphic power of the lines and cracks, especially when juxtaposed to a cloud set rendered like this one by a long exposure, scream for B/W... So, I don't have a clear favourite, I process according to the mood and feeling that I am after for each image instead.

 

Best regards,

 

Vieri
