Coolest shot i've seen so far. the angel leaves a void that you can fill with the 'essence', balanced by the mass of the mountain. nice one!

Beautiful picture, to me, the mountain in the background almost overshadows the subject, but i love it.

the image looks overall too sharp in my opinion, but the landscape is amazing

Neat idea! Cool shot of the mt.s in back and how in the world did you get such a great snow angel? I can never get up without ruining mine!

An angel, and cool too, and with access to big-ass mountains. I think you're ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' JDubsgirl. 7

I think possibly this is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' photokariangel. Definitely looks like it could be Utah.

well done, but i think this would work better if the angel was off center of the image.

Overall shot good, the Horizon is a tilted.

Don't know if you noticed this or not, but at the base of the mountains the snow/ground fans out and has a V shaped crevice above it. Kind of mirrors the snow angel in a way.

Clever, creative, good use of a stunning background to positive effect. 10 from me - see you on the front page. Congrats!

I didn't get a pic in for this challenge, but I had thought of this idea.. From WI here so got plenty of snow to work with... your angel looks HUGE against that mountain.
