The photography gods were not smiling upon me while I was at Monument Valley. It was a bit overcast and sometimes downright cloudy. I decided to try my hand at a bit of "What Ansel Saw". Monument Valley begs for color but I have always been a fan of B&W so today I finally had a bit of time to work on one of the shots I took there. I'm certainly no Ansel Adams but I wanted to try and emulate some of his work.... so here is my first feeble attempt.

This was shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the 18-55mm kit lens. Post in Lightroom and final tweaks in Photoshop CS6.. This was shot JPG.

Always best to view the larger version

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.

Great Image Jim!

It's rare that I like the subject centered in the frame but occasionally it works.  This certainly does as your eye is drawn to the asymmetrical elements.

Thanks for posting.
