- At first viewing this image has a great deal of impact. The composition is good, but might be improved by showing more of the base of the mountain and less of the sky. The idea of converting the image to monochrome was a good one, but the execution has caused a few problems. Many of the blacks are blocked up with no detail evident and many of the whites are blown out, again with little if any detail. There is also a "shadow" above the peaks that appears to have occurred in post processing.
- Black and white works but still missing drama.
- Real nice snowy mountains mono image. Sky isn't that interesting so use less of it. Perhaps a wider angle too?
- Excellent exposure with full range of grays from white to black. Focus very sharp. Composition could be improved by cropping at top & showing more foreground at bottom. Hope you were dressed warmly for this shot!
