Breaking the law by PeterJCoskun Breaking the law by PeterJCoskun
Sometimes, you find yourself in situations where you only have seconds to decide how to compose, expose, and focus. This, was one of those situations. This light, lasted just a matter of seconds on that peak. The landscape you see probably looks off center from the horizon, thats because there is a hill in the middle of the frame so I'm not even sure if this is perfectly aligned with the horizon. However, that hill provided a unique perspective that you can only get with a fisheye lens, not that you may be able to see it that well here, I have other shots that make it seem like a fisheye lens. In terms of composition, it may not be the most spectacular, but a field of cholla cactus always make for a good image. This was a lesson for me in that sometimes you just don't have the time to figure it all out, BUT I got the light, and thats all that mattered to me in this shot.

Not sure on the compo, but this place has potential by the looks of it...

Yeah, I wasn't 100% on it, but this place has potential for sure especially with the monsoons this summer. Probably going to go back when the skies explode and try to work on a better comp.

Raven: She told me enough. She told me you kill him.

Trigon: No, I am your father.
