"Fantasy Landscape"

"Fantasy Landscape"
©David A. Ziser

The title implies that the colors have been manipulated here, but let me assure you, only slightly. It's the natural surrounds and colors of the dessert that render the scene a lively display of colors with only modest tweaking in Lightroom. Camera specs; Canon 5D fitted with Sigma 12-24mm lens at 12mm, F5.6 @ 1/50 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! -David


  1. Another stunning photo! You are such an inspiration to me! I LOVED Digital WakeUp Call last night in Phoenix! My husband and I wanted to come say hello afterward, but our toddler was running a fever, so we had to get back to Queen Creek. But I left with so many new ideas and ways to improve my photography, my editing, and my business. It's an honor to learn from you! And thanks for the door prize...Viveza! I tried it out this morning and in less than 5 minutes, vastly improved an image that was a bit flat and boring before. It's on my facebook fan page here (the bride in a line of trees with an overly blue sky, haha) http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pages/Queen-Creek-AZ/MillerMiller-Photography/58334322514

    I went a little overboard with the blue sky, I'll tone that down next time, but WOW what a fantastic plug-in!

    Again, thank you for a wonderfully inspiring program; I can't wait for the next!

  2. I have to agree the photo is stunning and I was also at the Digital WakeUp Call in Phoenix as well and learned a great deal. I really enjoyed meeting you and your wife as well as all the other Photographers that came as well. I can't wait until you come back again.

  3. Alright another side of Ziser; isn't Arizona a photographer's dream! My head is still spinnin from the Wake Up Call. Your industrial engineering degree paid off...packing a ton into 4 hrs !

    Thanks for the simple wisdom!
