[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am inseparable by my old archive. The true is that, with my new camera I am taking many more pictures that I can see in couple of hours, and of course, with all the settings that I am playing…I am not getting any amazing result. Yes, I want to stay inside, but in the same time I wand better pictures. Is nonsense!
But anyway, I share with you an old image, from my beloved Ceahlau, in Romania. In fact, I recognize that I crop to have those mountain layers and the rising fog ( in the other parts of the original image it was a thick and compact layer of mist covering the top of the mountains).
This is a usual view from the top of the mountain, from the front of the Dochia Chalet, at aprox. 1770 m altitude. The original image was colored, but not a very distinct tone, so I chose the b-w version. I hope you like it.

Hi Oana. This is a very beautiful picture from your archives. The mist lmakes for a first class picture , Black and white looks best in the type of landscape. Well taken TFS.

Dear Oana!

You surprise me in a very pleasant way with this black&white picture. It transmits me your emotions evoked by the view of your homeland very well. I like landscapes in b&w, especially when they are combined with mystic atmospheres created by the light and/or fog and mist. This is the case in your beautiful picture.

Kind regards


Buna Oana,
Natura a generat un peisaj de o frumusete uluitoare care n-a scapat obiectivului tau. Imi place mult aceasta imagine, ma relaxeaza de-a dreptul. Felicitari!

A wonderful, artistic capture Oana. The layers and diagonal separation of the layers is beautiful.

Buna Oana

Misto ca suntem "vecini" azi :)
Imi place mult acest tip de poza...si eu imi doream sa pot face una similara in ultimele iesiri prin munti, dar nu a fost sa fie :)
Oricum straturile ies exceptional de bine in evidenta aici iar ceata face stratificarea super evidenta. Contrastul dintre cele doua aici e excelent iar perspectiva creata, traznet!
Pur si simplu foarte frumos.

Bravo si TFS

Hi Oana.
Amazing point of view. Opening scene is breathtaking and you managed to show it with all beauty. Great composition, very delicate reproduction of shapes of the hills and trees. Clouds among them are looked fantastically. My compliments and kind wishes.

Buna Oana,
Excelenta imaginea. Bine ales alb-negru. Un peisaj deosebit si bine realizat.

Cata poezie si romantism in aceasta minunatie!

Hi Oana,

it was really worth digging out of your archives - a wonderous image with all the clouds just in level with the trees.. you also composed perfectly, and I like the b&w here too. Outstanding landscape, TFS - it goes to my favs theme!

Best regards,

Hi Oana,

This is a lovely landscape photo. Nice early morning fog covering the tops of the mountains, good in black and white.
Great capture and TFS


Buna Oana,
What a fantastic capture! Your creation is a piece of art, like a drawing... The layers are very well placed and the mist is really amazing. I understand very well your love for this country! Congratulations my friend!
