Tram at Snowbird. A three day blizzard was just starting to break.

Awesome comment from [user]K10DGuy[/user]: As they descended into the maelstrom, into what would surely be their deaths, they clung to each other, desperately trying to take comfort in their love before the end.

As the wind and debris began to intensify, and started tearing the gondola apart, he whispered to her, "I love you, and I was wrong. We should have gone to Belize."

She whispered back, "I told you so."

This image has that magic of crisp detail, good out of focus area, slight blue tint. It's wonderufl.

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. This has such a cinematic feel - straight out of a Bond or Bourne movie, I think there are number of elements that have contributed to that.

2. The coloration - cool near-monochrome is perfectly judged, as is the toning/curves - plenty of highlights but none blown.

3. The cable lines give a great sense of depth, the eyes follow into the snowy murkiness.

4. Perfect DOF for this scene - the crisp cable car and enough of the distant scenery to set the context.

5. The falling snow - not your doing, but it adds much to the scene, giving in a sense of dynamism.

Overall, not one that I would have picked up in my old comment series but I'm glad I'm doing so now. I like the competent slickness of this image and how it is more than the sum of its parts.

Wow. This looks like a scene out of a James Bond movie. As if the mountain's exploded. Excellent capture.
