I wanted to get a beautiful, colorful shot of GOG for this challenge, but it has been gray, overcast, and snowy. The colors were flat, so I went with BW. Processing consists of crop, levels, some dodge/burn, resize, and USM.
Without the cloud cover, you normally would see Pikes Peak behind this scene.

Good use of panoramic aspect, I like the lighting.

Nice panoramic. The trees infront seem unnaturally blurred. Nice contrast in b&w. Beautiful mountainscape.

Think your DOF lets you down here, the front of your shot isn't in focus.

Like the contrast but the focus is kinda strange. Maby you were going for the out of focus foreground.

Nice shot. I'd reconsider the pretentious title.

I think I'd have liked the contrast between the red rock and the snow....

I know this spot well. My family lived in Deckers, West Creek and Woodland Park area for years. Looks great with the dusting of snow. Wonderful area and love seeing this shot. Nicely done.
