Pioneertown

By Gary_Williams  
The Wild West...

Acutally a strange little place that is just north of the Joshua Tree national Park in California, and I believe used as a location in the early years of the Hollywood western.

Another one that's been Photomatix (No - Really, I hear) and I'm please with the output. I've included the original file, dustspots 'n' all - There was enough dust for something to live on my sensor - times have changed.

Anyway, exposure 1/100s @ f/13 (ISO 200)

As I said through Photomatix, into Photoshop for a straighten, resize & sharpen.

Feel free to comment , critique or just plain vote & disappear into the distance.

I hope the weekends been good to you,

Cheers,

Gary
