Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

This was shot from a closed car window while driving with some friends towards Logan Utah. The pictures turned out much better than expected. I'm glad because some friends that used to live in the West extra specially requested lots of sunset photos!

    Absolutely gorgeous!!!! Great lighting, contrast & colors. Great work while taking it in a moving car again! Utah is such a fascinating place to visit with so many amazing landscapes. Thanks for sharing Melissa!

    Thanks! There are so many shots I wish I had brought a camera for ... to think ... I almost didn't take it with me on this short trip. So glad, though. Always something to photograph, right?

    Yes, it's beautiful, but what attracts me most is its tonality & the drammatic darkness of the above clouds

    Melissa Prosser said (1 May 2008):

    Thanks John I love it, too ... the weather and skies and everything seems to quickly and constantly change out here and much more dramatically than most places. Never boring!

    Everyone, thanks for the nice comments!
    Beth, the first sunset I saw in Utah truly looked like something Heavenly to me. I thought I'd died or was dreaming. I have never before, and never since seen anything like it.
    I didn't take a picture. It wouldn't have done it any justice anyway ... the most perfect white snow, glistening in a far off canyon. Golden sunlight pouring down on it ... amazing. I will keep looking for it, but at the time, I just took it as a sign that I was supposed to be here.
    Had I known some car shots come out this great, I might have tried to get it, though, hehe!

    Awesome! Those clouds are amazing, and the color and lighting are perfect! I spent three weeks in Logan, UT with four friends, when I graduated from Junior High School. Beautiful area! 'Course, that was in 1974. :-)

    Karen, it's still pretty out here, but I know it's probably built up a lot since you visited 1974!

    Melissa, this is absolutely beautiful! I especially like the horizontal layering of clouds as they so well "match" the darker horizon and darkest layer of clouds at top, both of which frame the sunset so well.
