Image 5 - Antelope Canyon (Dramatic)

Antelope Canyon (Dramatic)

Photo By Jan Dospel
Pro Critique
This is another beautiful rendition of Antelope Canyon and the photographer did a marvelous job with the exposure in the lighter areas. There are also hints of texture in the shadow areas and we suspect that a fine print of this image will show detail in the dark areas that aren’t coming through as strongly in this small, online JPEG. We would like to see a different composition. The top of the image is carefully composed to frame the lighter area with shadow, but the bottom of the frame just kind of falls off.
