Great photo, Gustavo! I love the layers of fog coming in. What f/stop did you have? I'd like to see more clarity in the vertical ice jutting upward in the foreground. I wonder what this image would have looked like if taken as a portrait - avoid the bare ground on the left... just climb from water to sky through the ice bank (jagged edge would be about 1/3 up in photo), and then through the fog to the inspiring peak with blue sky for a background. I would try to frame that image and see how it looks. Great capture. Thanks for sharing.
LOVE the blur to green at the bottom of the image. Nicely done! The woodpecker is crisp/clear - an excellent capture. TFS - Kelly
I think you've done too much sharpening to this image... it was the 'Tree?' title with the thumbnail that grabbed my attention - well done. Kelly
Nice, crisp... you froze this bird perfectly with the higher shutter speed, and still got wonderful focus... very nice shot! - Kelly
The colors, the curves, the fine detail and sweeping lines - this is another beauty of a shot, Wishnu. I'm going to have to dig out my pictures of Burma (Myanmar) and post a few! Thanks for this image - it is awesome!
Holy Cow - I love this! I need to play with my macro a bit more... that is impressive. Almost a post-production feel to it with the grainy, looking permanent base of the photo... exploding upward where the drop hit the rail. Very cool.
TFS Wishnu! - Kelly
Well, Markus, take heart in that you may not be in Patagonia, but you have both the landscapes and the skills to provide a visual image to us that is equally appealing (I've never been to either location... so much to see and so little time)!
The sunlit peak, the obvious crisp cold, and the incredible blue sky... add to that the sloping aspect in the foreground working its way down and to the right that balances the mountain in the background... wow!
Thank you for sharing, Sir. Brilliant image.
TFS - "Thanks for sharing," as an FYI! It took me a few people telling me TFS before I figured it out... thanks for sharing this lizard. Cool perspective.
Your thumbnail caught my eye, Jim. Impressive composition. After reading your note, it now makes sense as to why the larger image didn't quite deliver the clarity I was anticipating! Thank you for posting the picture. I too look forward to your next post! - Kelly
Great shot, Sir. While I agree with Evelynn that most shots of "Big Sky Country" are taken using a landscape orientation, I think your portrait perspective gives a unique twist to the feeling. It actually caught my eye because it was different than most "Big Sky" shots I see! As to the striped clouds, Karin is right. Because they are high wispy clouds that are blown and scattered horizontally across the sky in 'flat' patterns by the strong winds in the stratosphere, such clouds are called 'strata.' Again, great shot - thanks for sharing! - Kelly
