This shapes, the way you photographed it... I did'n really understand it, but in some ways and for about one short moment I wasn't able to realize what perspective this picture really is... There is so much to find, it is so experimental ... no more words, it IS just fantastatic, man!

I'm with you on images being able to speak for themselves. As much as a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes it's hard to find just the right ones. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous blue gem!

Well it is speaking for itself. And it's says........ fantastic! Truly as a thumbnail I first thought it's a digital graphic, but it's really really real... gave me a shock hard enough to believe the beauty of it.

Way to go!

What crazy colors? Filter or natural? The pastels are way cool. As my only slight nit a bit more on the bottom but killer shot and great light

the comments don't have to be used to explain the photo, but they are a great tool for creating some context, maybe how you got there, maybe what you think of it, and there are loads of other things it can be used for.

also, a lot of people simply put a
.
as their artists comment, which might be a solution as well (though i personally always read artists comments, because they can place the shot, or indicate if the artist has some questions)

one thing you might have put in the artists comments was that thing about these being the baddest of the badlands.

photos in their beauty speak for themselves. but some people (me included) like to know where or what was photographed, that's what comments are for i guess.

If it is a photo of a place, I like to know where it is. Other than that; yes, the image should be able to speak for itself.

Why are comments mandatory? Sometimes I guess it's hard to know what to write, I struggle with it lots...but...there's nothing more disappointing when looking at someone's work, something that has caught your eye and made you go wow!...and you look closer and find that the artist has nothing to say! Or has just left '...' It's nice to know at least where the image was taken or why you felt compelled to shoot a specific scene or object :)

This is a gorgeous shot, the colours are absolutely amazing and the texture brought out by the light is beautiful:heart:

Comments don't have to be mandatory--you can shut them off when you submit your photos, but I'm glad you didn't.

I'd like to ask where this Badlands photo was taken? There is a Badlands in South Dakota where I live but this doesn't look like it.

I think he meant "Artist's Comments"

You may be right--I don't know. He didn't elaborate very much and I took it to mean he didn't want others commenting

Thanks! Those are clay hills found around Caineville, UT. In the past they were referred to as "the baddest of the badlands" by the local pioneers.
