[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When looking at this image, you will probably notice two things. The picture is bright and over-exposed. The other noticeable feature of High Key images is the lack of contrast. I think making it a High Key image has great impact and enhances the mood that the picture conveys.

Hi Stephen,
Excellent landscape picture. Very good composition, unconventionally high exposure which makes the view actually look like what it would in sunshine without any shades: very bright new snow makes it difficult to see details. I like this picture very much.

Hi Stephen,
I like the way you processed this picture and the nostalgic mood that results of it. This is an excellent composition and POV. Thanks,

  • Great

Very eye-catching Stephen. I do like your High-Key approach to this image. It certainly brings out all the main features - yes, I do like this very much

Very interesting Stephen! You do have an artistic approach to photography. This image is reduced to the minimum number of elements and tonal values; and each is strategically placed in the vertical frame.

Nice work!

Hi Stephen,
This is really an excllent, very artistic composition in black and white. The high-key effect is really great and the different elements of the picture are very well chosen and placed.
Congrats, Mike

I like the effect you have achieved here, it has inspired me to attempt it! I think I'll have to head out and take a suitable shot for an effect like this, very nicely done.
