I'm lucky enough to live in a tourist's village! No really, I live in the basement of the hotel where I work. So welcome to my backyard!

This photograph - taken from the peak of Whistler Mountain - overlooks a sea of mountain peaks 360 degrees around. I love to come up here on my days off to ski and enjoy one of the worlds many beauties.

Views like this are the reason tourists come form all over the world to my home.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

What a great location to live, lucky you! This is a very competent landscape that would fit perfectly in any tourist guide of the area, well done. Like any good landscape image it relies upon the quality of the light but also being predominantly white it is easy to get the exposure of such a shot wrong, you've generally done a good job here though there may be scope for a hint more exposure without blowing the highlights to emphasise the whites. The lighting gives the scene a much more three dimensional feel. There is a blue cast that may benefit from some subtle correction but this may not truly reflect the scene you had before you. I think the composition could be improved by placing the peak further to the right so that it balances more with the trees in the lower left and we also get to see more of them.

As an obviously keen skier what better place could you ask to live, thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us Camelia and good luck with your future entries.
