[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
L'Aiguille de la Tsa is not one of the majors pics of the Valaisan Alps. But it has a quite remarkable shape (Aiguille=needle). It culminates at 3668m. It is situated in the Val d'Hérens.The picture was taken from the village of Arolla.
The first ascent was in 1868.
I took the picture after a day of snow, at the moment when the last clouds were disappearing.

Hello Anne,
Wow, that is a sharp one, must be hard to climb!! Very beautiful but cold capture of these dramatic mountains. Excellent depth of focus and lovely colours.
Many thanks, Ulla

Great composition and POV,Welldone.

Beautiful mountainscape after fresh snowfall, Anne. At 3668m, this "needle" of a summit looks formidable, requiring high grade technical skills to climb it.
The deep blue sky provides an impressive background. Did you use a polarizer filter in this capture?
TFS.

Hi Anne.
What a difficult for shooting subject you have selected and I like how well your have take this picture. Crisp sharpness of the rocks, great clearness of the colours, nice reproduction of mountain freshness create a very nice mood and impression. Perfect done and my best wishes.

Hola Anne,
preciosas montañas,
bello pov y espléndidos detalles...
saludos

What an amazing ridge of mountains with that one incredible point. Exposure and sharpness are great. Compositionally I wonder how it would have looked if you had shifted your point of view a bit to the right so L'Aiguille was not as centered in the frame. Nice work though.

Hello Anne

Just what we need on a hot summer day - a cold mountain scenarion with lots of snow:-).

Magnificent scenario you have posted here. Very nice colours, great dof and very clever handling of the light. I like the way the clouds are hanging around the mountain top. Must be a paradise for dare devil skiing:-).

Really a nice job.
Mogens

Liebe Anne,

Herzlich grüsst,

very misitical..pun!!
mystique and mist..
your sharpness really makes the rugged rocky parts jump out with hard edges and crisp details
snow is just on the limit for exposure but the shot overall benefits as it is light and breathes well
cheers

Hi Anne!
After a rather "hot presentation" from Crimea I would like to see something colder ;>
Great picture with fantastic details (the clouds!!! :>), POV and colours! Moreover it is always nice to see the place where I never been :)
TFS this beauty photo and best greetings from Lodz,
Radomir

Hi Anne,

great mountain view! Nice to see the higher part coming out from the clouds.

Well done!

Giorgio

Hello Anne

Hello Anne!

J'ai lu attentivement ton intro avant de me plonger avec beaucoup de bonheur dans tes images. Je pense sincèrement que tu dois changer le texte de ta présentation, car je ne vois pas où tu manques de connaissances techniques... En parcourant tes images, sans aller dans le détail de chacune, je constate seulement que tu as peut-être un peu trop la tendance à centrer tes sujets. Et encore, souvent le sujet, notemment s'il est petit et pris au macro, se prête au centrage.

J'ai choisi cette photo pour t'écrire parce qu'elle m'a tout de suite interpellée, réveillée des émotions. Elle a donc atteint son but! Le cadrage est excellent, et même s'il n'y a pas d'avant plan, on y plonge facilement, attiré par les nuages qui partagent si bien l'image. Ici, comme je l'ai dit avant, je trouve un peu dommage que la pointe de l'aiguille se trouve carrément au milieu...

En parcourant tes photos, j'ai eu le plaisir de voir le Bietschhorn et la Moosalp. Combiné avec ton nom, je me demande si on ne pourrait pas communiquer en Haut-Valaisan ensemble...

Très cordialement
Markus

beautiful picture, many compliments

Well done Anel - I can "feel" the cold in this photo. It has come alive for me!

Hello Anne
Paysage très beau sur le montagnes neigeuses! Bonne POV avec grande acuité, les couleurs et les détails sont très vive. Il me rappelle beaucoup l'Auguille du Midi en Haute Savoie.

Hi Anne! How's it going?

What a beautiful Mountainview, Anne! The Valaisan Alps. This is shot at quite a high altitude I believe. Good exposure, snow looks white. Some sharpening artifacts around the contour of the mountains. I can see why you were adressing technical sharpness in your critique.

:)

Well done, TFS.

Best regards, Dimitri.
