[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was very proud of this shot until I saw the results. Right in the forefront of the image was a telegraph pole. Managed to get rid of it in PS, also converyted to black and white to make it more dramatic. I hope that's all OK for Trek Nature....
Shot with Fuji S. and neg scanned.

Wow, this is excellent! Superb dramatic shot, the black and white is perfect for this. I love the strong sun rays across the frame, and I like what looks like a person at the bottom left which gives scale and depth. Very nice work!

Good choice of B&W makes this a more dramatic image. I like the contrast between the light and dark, well seen and processed.

Hi Lesley,
Intersting to see a sunburst in b/w. Most people will go for a color version to have the beautiful colors of the sun exposed, but you did it differently. You did very good, and I like it.


A belated welcome to TN! Great shot of the sun raysd over the Mountain. The setting is great and the fact that it is in Black and White for me, gives it a lot of character. TFS,
