Nice shot. The fence post give it a great 3 dimensional effect. Composition, technical aspects and visual impact are very good.

The corner post is a little too centered for my tastes. Beautiful !

What a beautiful photo. Too bad it wasn't a clearer day with a nice blue sky. None the less, I give it a 10. I'll be anxious to find out where this is.

Nice. Good composition - foreground / background. Possibly a little too close to fense. And if possible, you might want to try this shot with a neutral density filter or polorizer to deepen the exposure on the sky. Pretty shot, though, and meets the challenge. chrisab.

the contrasting green and blue really add to the photo

Im envious of someone that gets to see this daily

It almost looks surreal ... Nice postcard feel (and I don't mean that in a bad way).

Very nice image. Focus and lighting are good. I like the subject matter. 8 waltoml

The mountain is beautiful, the fence post is too much of a contrast, and is distracting. I think you just have a balance issue here. Maybe try two shots, one of the fence post, on on the other side of it at the mountain, and I'll bet you'll have two great shots.

Such a beautiful place, I wish I could visit or live there. Where is this? A wonderful, clear shot!

What a beautiful photo. I especially like the mountain with the snow on it. I also like the fact that you didn't use to much 'sky' space and used more of the greenery to bring out this photo. I love it - 9 :) Good luck in the Challenge.

I would have prefered to see the post slightly more off center. Right now it's almost dead on, and almost lined up with the mountain peak. I think it would have been more interesting to have some focal point off to one side

must be the local name for the mtn? lol! I am not a mtn freak but this is a great shot and sight to see! I get the sense of space and location you encourage with the fencepost and like this pic alot! 8 sgtpepper6344

Beautiful scenic. Would like to see picture with you standing two big steps to the left. JEM

I love the great depth of this shot... the range from the fence in the foreground to the snow-covered mountaintop in the background. Colors are great and, i'm sure, true. 7 sjgleah

The Hills are alive with the sound of music......great mountains
09/23/2002 09:10:00 PM
Beautiful! The only thing you could have asked for would have been a more dramatic sky... but you probably don't control that (I do! :)
09/23/2002 09:07:00 PM
beautiful mountain. The fence is somewhat distracting but i don't suppose you can climb over a private property :-)
09/23/2002 07:42:00 PM
excellent! 9

The mountain and the lighting is just fantastic!! Looks almost 3D. I just wish the fence were a little more in focus. Really nice shot though. Color is great. DPz

Excellent view of the mountain side.

Not a clue where this is...Fantastic where ever it is. Lovely shot. Score 8 Justine
Good Luck

I took my magnifying glass out and still can't find anything wrong with this photograph. Don't get your title though. - 10 joanns

Those mountains looks surreal! Great job!
09/23/2002 08:21:00 AM
I think this is a beautiful shot, but I don't understand the title, lol. I think less severe cropping would have helped make this very good shot even better.
09/23/2002 03:05:00 AM
huh!?!? That is a funny name. I like it. Awesome shot of the mountain. Where is it. I want to go and hike up it. 10

This is a beautiful shot - I would love to live here.
