the badlands can be a harsh environment with heat and dust during the day. i thought this evening light brought out the beauty of the basdlands however.

Great photo Lyn, I love the look of the sky just above the hills. Nice catch

Beautiful photo, with a very interesting landscape and a great sky above. Excellent use of light in order to emphasize the topography. I think that the image was oversharpened and looks for this reason somewhat artificial – see particularly the sky/land demarcation.

Exquisite colours and sharpness. You've caught the light perfectly. Good composition, with the horizon just below the half way mark. This sky deserves to get a lot of attention. Bravo!
--- I just read Roly's critique, and the demarcation between sky and land is there. It doesn't bother me, but if you want, you can clone it out very delicately using a 300% zoom and a 1-pixel size cloning brush.

Excellent work Lyn. Great colourful capture of the leveled land and sky(clouds). Very neat image with good clarify & contrast.
Very well done. Regards, Don.

Using your Polarization filter here make the picture so great! I love the sky in the way you've taken! The color of the land look more strange that I've ever seen.
Thanks for sharing, Lyn!

Great work here, I like the composition and the sharpness of the mountains are just great.

Hu! What a landscape! The sharpness quality is tremendous. Very good contrasts highlighting the reliefs of clouds and mountains too. The color balance is strange, here (colors's reflection from the ground to the clouds?). Really good shot!

Wonderful landscape. By using the polarizer, you managed to get a very sharp image . The clouds are adding a lot to the beauty of your shot. Well done.

This kind of shot makes me wanting more to learn how to use my polarizer. :) Great shot!

Amazing landscape and colours you got on this excellent capture. This dosen't seems so bad to me - but I can see that life must be hard around here- thanks Lyn for sharing this fine work - I like it a lot.

I like the feeling of the wind blowing and the motion of the clouds

awesome shot. that lighting is spot on. The clouds and blue sky make the picture.

Gorgeous light Lyn and excellent detail. You were blessed, of course, with a dramatic sky and sunlight to highlight the beautiful hill forms. The polarizer, which seems to be a staple in your photography, works to advantage here with the rich blue sky. Fine work all the way around.
