I've had to pull these cactus out of my shoes and jeans a time or two! Lol!  Gorgeous view! :hug:

The cacti look ...soft! Nice play with lighting. 
Minor crit, the composition is a little busy. My eye is bouncing all over. One cactus plant as focus might have worked a little more in your favor.

Still though, great light and color!

Thank you! The cacti in the foreground are the main subject, but I needed the background cacti to give context to the surrounding landscape. Otherwise, there would just be foreground and background with no middle ground. Gotta have the middle ground!

Magical-Me Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013
Well I like the middle ground, that wasn't what I meant. I meant the foreground cacti. I think cause one is getting cut off in the frame, it leads me to look out of the frame. This is kind of what I was trying to explain. www.deviantart.com/art/Cactus-…
There is still a lot to look at, but there is one main focus too. I know you had different surroundings to work with, I just think that keeping the main focals contained in the frame may have really brought this on a level of brilliance even more than it already is.

PeterJCoskun Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013
Ah I see what you mean. The problem with getting more of the cholla in the frame is that directly behind me was another grouping of cholla which left me pretty limited with moving back (which I myself would have preferred). I could have shot this as a vertical pano, but the bottoms of these cacti aren't very attractive anyways.

Great photo. When I lived in Phoenix, Goldfield was one of my most visited places and the Superstition Mountain range was my most photographed subject.
