This photo was taken on Wednesday, during our trek through Slovakian Tatras. It was quite long trek. It took us about 8,5 hours. The weather was changing. In the beginning quite blue sky, in the end fog and clouds. Fortunatelly it wasn't raining.
We started from Tatrzanska Lomnica (about 900m), went through Skalnata Chata, Skalnate Pleso (1750m), Sedlo pod Svistovkou (2030m), Velka Svistovka (2038m), Velke Cerne Pleso, Zelene Pleso (1541m), Chata pri Zelonom Plese, Trojuholnikove Pleso, Biele Pleso (1613m), Predne Kopske Sedlo (1778m), Kopske Sedlo (1750m), Vysne Kopske Sedlo (1933m), Siroke Sedlo (1826m), Ptasiowska Rowienka, Zdziar. Pleso = lake, sedlo = pass.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek

Hi Maciej,

This photo proves that the golden rule is not an exact rule. The smallness of the deer emphasizes the height and the vast landscape. TFS, regards.


Hello Maciej,
Excellent capture of this chamois in its natural habitat with good pose and compozition,sharp details and bright natural colours.
Have a nice weekend!

Hello Maciek,
Nice photo of this landscape with the Ibex in the foreground. For me there's a bit to much background. So I made a workshop. I hope you don't mind.

Superb feeling from this vast, barren valley and with the lone buck looking longingly towards greener pastures. I really like this sharp composition!

Bom dia Maciej
I saw this pic few days ago and I love it.Great moment in a fantastic place.Lovely composition.Thank You.
Have a good week!
Best regards

Hi Maciej,

The distance between the animal and the valley is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountain and of the animal. The colores of the valley are contrasting well with the colors of the mountain. Have a nice day.


Hi Maciej,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see great nature from mountain top. It's interesting in mountain roads at upper and right side. And, wild animal standing on the rock draws out a good effect in this image. Good focus to rock and good contrast in background with blurred image. Have a nice week.

Kind regards,
