    These photos share amazing vistas and color. Thank you for including the color temperature. I am using an x-series and pretty much always use auto white balance. Were you adjusting the color temperature in post-processing? (I assume so.) Did you mask and burn to get the deep blue skies and vivid colors, or was the combined deep blue sky and red-colored sand mostly a factor of the time of day? The info on filters, tripod usage, equipment, and local requirements is also exceedingly useful. I hope to use your info to improve my shots on the next visit to the desert. We look forward to seeing more work from you here…Thank you!

    Hej Brain // best thanks for the virtual flowers 😉 // The color temperature I find is among crucial with regard to the effect of the image! With the Fuji GFX I switched to the ‘automatic’ white balance – then in the digital darkroom the fine adjustment is done (+ / – 100 – 150 K, adjust toning if necessary) // Mask sky – combine? No! Usually I just adjust the contrasts slightly, refine depths & highlights – correct horizon – mask sensor spots if needed – done!
