Note: Image MR 1 was taken with the Sony R1 in 2007. Images MR 2 and MR 3 were taken with the Sony A900 in 2009. The images were taken at different times of the day and from different points on the Desert Road. In addition, the images have been saved at a very low quality and are displayed at a relatively small size. Therefore, large prints of the above images  look a lot better and show a great deal more detail than can be seen above.

Click  here  to read a photography forum discussion about whether people prefer the clear sky image or the cloudy sky image. This discussion took place on the "Sony SLR Talk" forum on the web site of  Digital Photography Review. The discussion included advice on whether the clear sky image could have cloud added in using an imaging program, such as  Photoshop.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels. In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
