The Subway

Val Feldman level-deluxe 11/8/2010 8:52:09 AM

Breathtaking color, great textures! Looks so "otherworldy", Deb...the tubular formation in the b/g and it's colors and reflected light lend a terrific color contrast to the many blues in this capture. Totally amazing and fantastic work! #1325137

Julianne Bradford 11/8/2010 9:06:52 AM

Another incredible, MAGICAL,SPECTACULAR, amazing capture of Zion, Deb! Both went straight to my favorites. The reflected lighting from the "subway" enables magnificent colors and tones in the rocks and in the different blue/greens of the water. Again, the color contrasts are wonderful as are the exquisite details revealed in the rocks and swirling design in the water. Can't wait to see more! #9022157

Carol L. Fowler 11/9/2010 3:34:40 PM
