Too late to find out that this was now Advanced editing! Oh well. Too many Ansel Adam's shots, too, I'm sure. Oh well. I still like it, and he's still my first photo hero.

Wonderful tonal ranges, with or without advanced editing.

Beautiful shot David. I wish you would have gone back and re-edited it after it became advanced editing - I really think the snow would benefit from being brightened a tad in levels or curves.

Beautiful mountains and feel of footprints leading toward them over the expanse of snow. Lovely.

Nature. Expanse! Depth! Contrast coudl be increased, darker darks. Good luck.

Looks like you are well on your way to having his style nailed down! This does make me think of his high contrast mountainous work. Good job.

Gradiated skies to replace dark angry clouds is what Adams has also been known for. I like how you adjusted the polarizer in such a way that the gradiations start from the left. Although it leaves me to wonder how this image would look like had it been gradiated from top down. The wide expanse of the space is truly outstanding and I'm glad you used a wide angle to capture these gentle footsteps in the snow. Great job!

Nice landscape. I think that it might work better if the foot steps lead in from both bottom corners. Good broad tonal range too. Maybe a lower pov would help to create more of an impact. 8

Nice one! Was he coming to meet you or running away :-)

It would have been even better with just a single line of footprints.

Nice idea, capture, and execution. My only though is perhaps a little more exposure in the forground to make the forground snow a little whiter... Bravo!
