It was a beautiful and cold day on the top of Whistler Mountain. My hands started to freeze as I waited for a rider to enter my shot.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

This is a lovely snowy landscape brought to life by the foreground skier and distant figures. A great composition, the placing of the skier works really well. The only thing that doesn't work for me is the foreground in the right corner it just feels as though the skier is about to come to grief in it. I like the diagonal of the flag-posts and the dynamic reds of the flags. Exposure-wise I love the whites of this difficult exposure you've brought the snow out nice and white without losing too much detail except in the sky which may be what snaffles is referring to. You could lose the bulk of that sky and its poor detail by cropping close to the mountain tops, the more I look at it with my suggested crop the more I like it, I think you would end up with an even better image. Thanks for a great entry Camelia, well done.

Grand action shot. I always wonder about these folk who use only one ski!
