I'm really happy for this ribbon. I went on Dolomites just to take this shot for the challenge, and it was very tiring to get there.
Thanks to all the voters

This is awesome!

Wonderful image! The lighting is perfect, composition is inspiring. I never would have thought to put person in a shot like this, but it really pulls it all together and no doubt helped to make it stand out from the other landscapes. This is a fave for me!

(p.s. my family moved to Canada from Rocca San Giovanni in Chieti in the late 1930's, I would love to visit my relatives there sometime. Way farther south than where this was taken, but still on the Adriatic side)

I wonder how you got the gold effect on the peaks. Very nice composition.

one of my top picks in the challenge. the sky is dark and adds great contrast to the clouds; however the far right cloud just doesn't do it for me, so you'll have to settle for a 9

WOW! Nice work here, not much to say than 10!

I feel cold just looking at this!
03/21/2008 11:38:34 AM
This is my winner. I like how you used the white balance to give the snow, its blue hue.

Wow. Nice. I am big fan of blue hues. BUt this one might be a little too much. IMO

Wow - love the colors and treatment!!! Beautiful picture.

nice submission, only problem I see is the footprints in the snow where you walked for setup, a different crop might have fixed that but then again it might have taken away from the shot
