    Burning man



    Just one of the many pics I took there, posted to kind of celebrate my coming back on the forum... Not really post processed or anything.

    I question if it's worth working on it. I feel the composition impact of that photo is not that great anyways and even a good PP would bring it to a so-so rating.

    This is one of those event that I want to go someday. It is kind of intrigued everything that I have seen from people who posted. Have you tried B/W or high contrast sepia?

    I have not tried Sepia or other monochrome conversions. I don't usually do much of them.

    Thanks for the votes. I guess I could do a re-crop without much loss of composition, hence improving the result.

    I think it could be nice if you crop off some from the left, as well as part of the sky; maybe a bit of the foreground sand as well. I like the elements a lot--the bicycles strewn around, the giant chair, and the big . . . whatever it is on the right. But the sand and sky themselves lack interest and don't have any strong leading lines or shapes in them. They give a sense of vast space, but otherwise don't contribute much to the composition.
