Awesome capture. Like this one a lot. I like that the skis make an x, it really adds to it being the focal point. the image seems a little flat but it works well here given the conditions.

Great shot!
Its minimal and the smoothness of the snow lends necely to the sharpness of the skier

this just jumps out immediately among other entries .... you certainly expertly exploited an unual photo op ... the 3 (sky, snow, ski) elements in the photo work together perfectly ... the soft texture of the snow i think really nicely supports focus on the skier ... it almost looks as though the snow is clouds in the sky .. a very unusal and powerful effect to my eye.

04/29/2005 10:09:52 PM
Whew, a 10 for you

Picture executed very well. Love the use of white and blue for background which shows the subject off well. Great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 04:36:37 PM
Very nice. The line of where the snow meets the sky adds so much interest to this photo without distracting from the subject. I think it fits the "minimalist" bill in a very Un-boring way :) Love the composition.

amazing capture this will be near the top 3
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 12:38:53 PM
Really cool shot and nice way to capture the action. I wouldn’t change a thing about this one. The composition, use of lines and presence of action really make it a winner for me.

Wow, what a cool shot! Definitely minimal, I love how the skiier looks like he is flying above a cloud. Great job!

Got my first 10... nice photo that perfectly meets the challenge IMO. Not sure if it is rotated or not but the gentle curve of the slope looks like a cloud...
