Post Challenge -

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments. Seems I've got the Honorable Mention label on this now, yet I still consider this a 6th placer finisher. Thanks go out to Falc for his honesty, but I believe what he did was a minor offense and I'll still give him the credit he deserves.

An image with the charm and strength of the Ansel Adam's genre. Congratulations on your 5th place.

Way to GO MARK!!!!! What an honor to be honorable mention in a challenge with such amazing photos! I thought this one might ribbon, but chalking up another honorable mention in such a short time is certainly something to be proud of!

Congratulations on this amazing photo!

Very nice tones and contrast and great scene. This seems very heavy on the noise reduction though--there's no texture whatsoever to the sand and even the clouds have lost detail. I think the textures would be helpful here!

i wonder how the original picture looks like
10/07/2006 12:25:17 PM
Wow. I love the way the lighting of the lower hills leads me directly to the snowy summits. The billowy clouds give this photo a sense of balanced softness and motion in any otherwise stark setting. 9.

nice capture. I think it might have worked better with the mountain not exactly in the center. Might have meant a long walk though!
