Fantastic landscape. Very precise BW conversion, I love the dynamic tones and the strong whites. So realistic that I can almost feel the cold air. Congrats on the ribbon, Richard!

Love this shot!
A nice crisp, sharp image.
You can see the storm coming in from "over the top" of the mountains.
Beautifully done!
