Mungo National Park

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Forum rules
Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

I don't think the horizon is quite horizontal, but that's is a minor point for such beautiful pictures.

Great pic! I prefer the B&W image...lots of drama. The composition is just perfect!

Mungo is a great place and you have captured the eeriness perfectly.
Last time I was there I was still on film. Note to self: Go back soon.

I agree with Matt. The B/W is best. Only thing I am not sure of is that rocket taking off in the background.

this is on my list.. hopefully soon :)

I like the BW, it simplifies the composition, but the colour one really makes the ground jump out at me.

No amount of processing will fix bad composition - trust me i have tried.

Thanks for the comments, yes well worth seeing. I like to go back there at a different time of year when its a bit cooler. It was about 32deg a bit hot from Canberra from wearing a jumper.

You can only go on the wall with a guide now and the roads in are all dirt and no petrol there. The road from Mildura is the best about 1 1/2 hours whereas from Balranald is rough and slow just under 3 hours, that in a 2 wheel drive vehicle.

I've driven past the turnoff near Balranald many times, but have never had the time to go and see Mungo. Maybe should put it on my to-do list. Great photo and the little strike of light completes the photo.
