Wow, Mae! This is stunning! I'm with bvy, when a photo this BEAUTIFUL gets rejected, it just has to be some malfunction with them. I can't see this being rejected ANYWHERE!

1x rejected it? Their loss. I'm sitting hear scratching my head trying to figure out why I only gave it a six in voting...

Congratulations, Mae! I was hoping for this to be on the frontpage, but, c'est la vie. I am not a fan of purple, but you make this colour look just right.

PS - I just tried to add it to my favourites, but it was there already! Go figure.

Love the details of this image. The rays from the sun, in a clear sky, the subtle tones of the mountains peeking out from the fog layer. If only there were a horse on that peak.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments. This is a wonderfully simple and elegant capture of nature. This shows unspoiled beauty with just the rolling shapes of the mountains peering out of the sea of clouds. The cool shades of blue and purples create a calming mood the perfectly fits the serenity of the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:51:57 PM
Nice blues, well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:25:47 PM
A very simple landscape yet it draws me in. I think its the layers of mountains that is so interesting. The colour precessing is great too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:13:09 PM
This is lovely! I particularly like how the image goes strongly from totally black to totally light, and yet, it doesn't look blown or too dark anywhere. The composition, with the tall clear mountain right below the brightness, is just right. You should be so proud of this, and print it BIG, HUGE, maybe even as a mural kind of print, maybe even split into 3 screens.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 10:46:46 AM
Most unusual landscape shot. The use of the blue tones was very brave but i think it works really well. Well done and good luck for the rest of the challenge.

the tones appeal to me , still it lacks a little wow factor to move this to the next level 6

Exposure well controlled. The colors are very lovely. I love the depth that mist and mountains give.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:55:38 AM
I always enjoy well taken and processed 'layers' photographs, and this is simply wonderful. I also like it cropped into a panoramic ratio, with very little sky showing - either way, I imagine this would look stunning printed big and framed for the wall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:59:28 AM
Love the tones; softly pretty image.
