Photo of the Day (11.14.10)

Congratulations to Flickr user twoeightnine on this absolutely stunning shot of the Grand Canyon. From the dramatic ridges and crevices of the canyon, each crisply outlined by shadow, to the fluffy white clouds drifting on a brilliant blue sky, there's plenty of great visual intrigue to move your eye around the photo. Wondering how to take your own Ansel Adams-worthy masterpiece like this one? First start by picking the right time of day. Typically the early morning and just before sunset are best - you'll get better shadows which add depth to your subject. Then when you're home from your trip, don't be afraid to edit the shot in a program like Photoshop, which will help you brighten up the colors. Don't think of it as cheating - you're simply making your photo look its best!

Have any great travel photos you'd like to share with the world? Why not add them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.
