[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mongolia is justifiably known as "the land of blue skies", and here at Vulture's Beak Gorge, in an elevated upland area of the Gobi Desert, is no exception. Again, I've spent a little time dodging the shadows, & burning in the highlights. I guess this is my version of HDR. I didn't feel confident enough to attempt this type of pp work, 3 years ago. The polarizing filter has done its job with the saturation. Taken in June, the Mongolian Spring, so there's fresh green grass for the hungry horses to feed on, after the long cold winter. (-30c).

Hi Chris,
A wonderful landscape with super colours, POV and light.TFS.


Hi Chris,

Very nice place to visit, great scenery and the composition is spot on Hdr helped bring out the beauty even more but the saturation is overdone..


Hi Chris,
Looks a bit oversaturated to me, but otherwise, great light and excelent composition with the road leading until behind the mountains. It gives the feeling of wanting to look what is behind the curve.
Well done and TFS
