Very good composition, with 3 distinct areas having a different lighting, brigthness, texture.

Excellent shot Mikhail.I love mountains and these are truly spectacular. I love to climb peaks,although I'm by no means an accomplished mountaineer...more often I go in the opposite direction...underground.

Very nice shot Mikhail. Good colours and sharpness. I like the composition too.



The clear view of the mountain is brillient and offset by the clouds below at the bottom of the picture.

As you would probably expect there are points from me on every of your images but now I am asking you : when are you going to take the step Mikhail ? I wanna see you crossing the glaciers ! Base camp , Base camp , base camp !!! You have to step into the ice ! No more harmless hiking !
P.S. I am probably one of the very few that finds your mountain photography so much more interesting then your interviews & thesis on oil and global energy politics (its amazing what Google can do in therms of research)... Anyhow, got you, your heart is not where your mind is, hehehe, am I right ?!
