Thank you Daniela, appreciate your comment! This is in the gravel hills east of Grand Junction, Colorado U.S. I see you live in Uruguay and Punta del Este looks like a cross between Santorini, GR and Barcelona, Spain

I have you to thank for this! You obviously have some kind of pull with the judges!

Behind The Lens

Location
Grand Junction, Colorado
Time
8:30am
Lighting
Driving home and the light was low so it made interesting shading and brought out the shaded creases
Equipment
Canon 6D with my EOS 400/f5.6 L lens hand held!
Inspiration
I like textures and shading for my more abstract images and this one caught my eye!
Editing
Lightroom with normal contrast, color, sharpen and cropping!
In my camera bag
I now carry a 5D MK III, 7D MK II, 17-40 L, 100/f2.8 Macro L and my 400/f5.6 L and ND filters, tripod, flash, monopod!
Feedback
When you see images that you like by other photographers think about those images when you're out and about and start trying to capture something different in your style. Most important is know your equipment, especially your lens depth of field characteristics and shutter speed needed to capture a sharp rendition of your image and leave some space around what you think the actual image will be so you can crop to exactly what you need! Allways use the rule of thirds until you get good enough to break those rules with object balance!
