    I am taking an overnight trip with my Brother- and Father-in-Law in a couple of weeks to southern Utah but we can't decide between Zions or Bryce. Does anyone have any strong opinions?

    Why do you use that lens?

    I'd like to know what goes through peoples minds when they choose to use a certain lens. Why do you choose the lens you do to take the picture you do?

    I really like the feel of the picture. Makes me wonder about the story behind the old stuff.

    How do you think B&W or Sepia would change the feel of the photo?
