Lone Rider by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This rider I suspect had no idea of my existence as I sat on the summit of the Barlangi Rock having camped here overnight. This is a very remote area so to see a rider, let alone a lone rider was unusual.

Barlangi Rock has a long history, going back some two billion years when a meteorite slammed into what is now outback Western Australia. The impact left a 70-kilometre-wide scar on the land known as the Yarrabubba impact crater. Sadly, the crater is no longer visible.

Made it. by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A day of railway tunnels, well a few anyway as we continued our walk through the Minenete Valley following an old railway form.

Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D10-21: Day 10 of 12 – Florac to Gare de Cassagnas: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (#GR70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

If it were mine, I would lighten the insides of the tunnel a bit, so that you can see a bit of detail. One of the "Rules" is that you should not have closed shadows (like the tunnel) and blown highlights. Perhaps not even over-bright highlights. You can of course ignore the rules if you have a good reason to. I ignore them all the time. And yet I am also aware of them and I always consider following them. In this case, I would follow them.

Thanks for the comment!

There is nothing to recover in the blacks so it is as it is. There are no blown highlights in this picture, at least not in the original file, some blowing might have crept in during processing.
The picture was taken a couple of years ago, so I hope I have learned a bit since then.
Recovering shadows in that situation would probably have needed exposure bracketing and stacking.

Fair enough. There are no blown highlights, although the highlights on the other side of the tunnel are quite "hot" and if it were mine, I would have toned them down a bit

I like it that way, it gives a sense of the light at the end of the tunnel!
It is darker on this side but when you get through there is light!
The sun in Colorado can be hot and the light harsh.

It is strictly your call. I see myself as an extra pair of eyes. I do like to hear other people's views, I think about them and sometimes I accept them and sometimes not. I fully expect that you too will make your call on your work
