Chesler Park

Photo By Benjamin Charles
Pro Critique
We would have to guess this is a sunset photograph as clouds are more common in the afternoons in the canyonlands. This photograph does a beautiful job of capturing the dramatic sky and the warm light on the monuments. While it is always useful to adopt the common composition technique of including something of interest in the foreground of a photograph, here it would seem that less rock at the bottom and more sky at the top would be the better composition. This is especially true because the large pink mound of rock lacks any particularly redeeming features for it to occupy so much image space.

Lightroom 2 Tip
Keyword Upon Download
Especially if you won’t take the time to apply individual keywords to your images later, it can prove very helpful to apply keywords to a group of images when you’re downloading them. When you use the Import feature in Lightroom 2, you’ll find a Keywords field at the bottom-left of the Import Photos dialog box (bottom-center if you turn off the Show Preview check box). Simply enter keywords that apply to all images in the set you’re importing, with each keyword separated by a comma. Those keywords will be added to the images during the import process, adding one more way to quickly find the image you need later.
