All my capetown shots were developed by Orms in capetown, the best photolab I've ever used.

Heh yeah I have been boning up on the (Adams) zone system, although this particular shot was shot in aperture priority mode with the the EOS 300's evaluative exposure mode (ie. no spot metering or exposure compensation, exposure decided entirely by the camera). Canon's auto exposure system is very hard to beat. But doing it yourself is a lot more fun, so I use the zone system when the exposure is critical to the shot, and when I can be bothered. Because the EOS evaluative exposure mode is so good, the main advantage of the zone system for me is that it brings me that much closer to the art of the picture: actively making choices about the tones of the subject rather than leaving them up to the inscrutable whims of the Canon engineers. And, occasionally the EOS does get it wrong, and then it's nice to be able to do it right.

I'm such a texture fiend, and this is texture heaven. I love the contrasts of tone/light, nice formations and flow, wonderful shadows, so well done, as always.

I come back to devianart and I find this wonderful picture. the texture on the rock is amazing. the fact that the picture has a very equal and yet varied tonal range is top notch. the sky being dark, yet light, in contrast to the bottom beinf light yet dark. my nonesense has spoken. nice work.
