Tom Foster’s “Desert Abstract #4″

Photographer Tom Foster
Title Desert Abstract #4
Category April 2013 /Gold/ Monochrome /First Place
Location Death Valley, CA
Reason For Making the Image I was in Death Valley, CA taking early morning shots of sand dunes.  Unfortunately (or so I thought at the time) it was a cloudy morning, so the sharp, distinct shadows that I was hoping for were absent.  Instead they were replaced by subtle, low contrast, diffuse shadows.  Although it didn’t think it  worked in color, I was fairly pleased with a black and white rendering of the image.
