Seneca Rocks
This is the formation that defines this area of West Virginia. Paths for hikers exist, and we could occasionally see the silhouette of those hikers across the top of the rock. Local outfitters are kept busy helping the more adventurous scale the face of this rock, and though the weather was bad during our stay, we also saw an adventure hound “hanging” from a line, his bright shirt a tiny dot of color on the gray rock.

PP work--increased midtones a bit (+12), contrast (+19), and very slightly increased saturation. I'm experimenting with frames and text--I notice most of you don't put text on the photos.

Hallo Karen,
A crazy picture is felled me that very. A winning excellent detail and clear lines on the composition. Very large quality and good use of light are interesting. Would congratulate and would greet beautiful out of Freising.

Well the first thing that drew my attention was the word "seneca" in the title. But beyond that, it looked like some really cool rock formations. I like the layering here of the trees in the foreground - and the contours among the branches - and the towering cliffs in the background.

I wasn't sure about the overall composition though, with the gap placed in the middle (rule of thirds and all that). I might have tried for a vertical format to accentuate the height of the cliffs.

I did a workshop with a more panoramic view, along with some other alterations.

Overall, two points for showing me some very interesting formations (there's no such thing here in Florida!) and the detail in the rock face.
