Backlit Desert by TrentLarsonphoto Backlit Desert by TrentLarsonphoto
I'm not really sure about this one. I've been messing around with backlighting for a while now and I think this is the closest i've gotten to what's in my head. I was driving by this spot in the Four Peaks Wilderness and noticed the light around the saguaros and then saw the distant mountains and I knew I had to try. The biggest mountain in the shot is Red Mountain and South Mountain is barely visible behind it. Camelback Mountain is the medium shade mountain on the right side of the frame. I'd really appreciate some feedback on this one. Thanks!

I think the backlighting worked very well here with the white edging making them stand out from the background. I like thew vanishing ranges in the background as well.

You have the right idea going here. Though it is really hard to get a good back-lit image that includes the sky (from my experience). I think a little contrast would make this pop a little more. Or even a curves adjustment. This is the perfect subject though and the comp works for it.
