Great image! I like the long shot to show the rock fragments crumbling down the mountain as well as the foreboding sky. Reminds me of the Deep Purple album cover!

@Stephen: Thank you : )
It was a good idea for an album cover !
j'ai visité ce lieu il y a presque 40 ans ! impressionnant ces visages creusés dans le rock !

Amazing shot and place. I love the mood you got here with B&W. Have a nice weekend Céline.

Classic scene, well photographed. I like the high-contrast look.

@Harry: Thank you : )
Very nice - has such an ominous feel to it for me - like a huge storm is about to roll in and the faces are showing they are determined and not moving for anything.

I like your interpretation :D

@Mici: Thank you : )
This is practically in my back yard! You did a great job capturing it and post processing. I see Mt. Rushmore pics so often around here, that they tend to bore me, but yours does not. Great job!

@Floweringredbud: Thank you : )
I'm glad to give a new twist to this iconic place ! I love South Dakota !
Great shot in B&W. Also impressive how the sculptures are made by men!!

Pretty amazing shot indeed, very well caught love.
Never realized earlier but their looks are very interesting and you can sense the type of men they were.
Love the clouds and rocks on this dramatic pic.

Sous cet angle ce ciel tourmenté et ton beau N&B, ces têtes de pierre géantes impressionnent encore plus !

I haven't seen North By Northwest...
Un lieu qui m'a toujours interpellé, jamais vu en réel, mais à chaque fois que j'ai vu des photos je trouve cela vraiment très particulier, du beau travail. Bises.
