    Hello Renzo

    This is spectacular. I love your viewpoint, looking down on the clouds. We might almost believe we were looking at rocks in a stormy sea. You must have done some serious hiking to get up there. Lovely work.

    Hello Piotr

    Magical light, dramatic view, wonderful contrast between the cloudy but partially sunlit mountainside and the dark foreground slope, and a very unusual framing: most would have tried to include the mountain top. Nice thirdsy composition. Very good work.

    Hello Kasia

    Compared to your other recent posts from here, this looks almost like a tourist postcard! I'm reminded of the fountains outside the Louvre... There's plenty of life here, and the fountains working suggest civic life seems fairly normal. Lovely quiet late evening shot.

    Very lively and colourful. The blobs of coloured lights on the buildings are most unusual.

    Hello Suhas

    A very impressive photograph in many ways: full of natural drama, and your presence up there in the high mountains is worthy of note too! But there are a few technical problems. You don't tell us what camera you were using, but it seems rather noisy: either it's a fairly low-res camera, or you had a very high ISO set. Also the contrast is too high; the highlights are blown (they're all 255, i.e. pure white) and the shadows are blocked (they're 0, i.e. pure black). I hope you don't mind that I've done a Workshop to try to address these issues. Believe me, I wouldn't have bothered unless the photograph merited it!

    Hello Dwaipayan

    Beautiful shot. Good contrast; colours maybe a tad over-saturated for my taste, but what do I know? Certainly the scene you've captured is wild and pristine. I guess these are domesticated animals (yak?), but there's no sign of habitation or human interference here at all. Not even the telltale vapour trails in the sky! Excellent.

    Magical effects from the backlighting on the snow and trees. You've managed to control the sunlight by partially hiding it behind the foreground branch. Exquisite and pristine.

    Hello Erling

    I like the "thirdsy" or "golden ratio" balance you've achieved in this composition. And I'm pleased that you haven't been tempted to overcook the saturation: there's plenty already. A very pleasing, if chilly-looking, photograph!

    Hello Berdia

    What an intriguing photograph you have presented to us. I confess that, even with your explanation, I find it hard to work out what is what. But that's a good thing. It's very refreshing on this site to have something challenging and different. A clever and well-seen image. Good work.

    Hello Angel

    A wonderful natural arch, and people around to give us a sense of scale. Lovely colours too, though I detect a halo round the rocks that shows that you've burnt the sky in during PP! Too big a feather I guess. Otherwise excellent work.

    Hello Mesut

    Boy, that looks cold! We've had no snow at all here on the south coast of England so far this Winter. This light dusting nevertheless looks set to get a lot thicker if those snowflakes in the sky are anything to go by. A happy TE birthday to you!

    Hello Kasia

    Thank you for posting these unadorned, authentic documentary photographs of a place few from TE (or anywhere else) are likely ever to visit. They ain't pretty; rather the reverse, but these scruffy neighbourhoods show us the mundane and curiously familiar life that goes on in spite of the horror stories. Here we see three kids, a main street with plenty of traffic, a concrete flyover; this could be London, New York or wherever. It's the humanity that shines through.

    Kind regards

    Hello Luciano

    Beautiful, apparently unspoiled beach, although the many footprints suggest that it's pretty popular at certain times of the week. I like the way you've divided up the frame into discrete segments, each with their own colour palette.

    Hello Noel

    Fine ruin, placed elegantly in the frame, and balanced by the "gates of heaven". Shame the gates are burnt out (maybe the Devil's work?) but with sun that strong, I know it's hard (especially with digital) to avoid blown highlights, especially when there's this much contrast in the scene.

    Hello Les

    Beautiful near-"monochrome" from you this time, and you're a near neighbour in the gallery too today. There is great drama in the shafts of sunlight still piercing the clouds. The more I look, the more I'm convinced you've rendered this as maybe a duotone in P'shop; if so, it's expertly achieved. I also like the underexposure/extreme contrast, which is a welcome change from the frequent wishy-washy images we see more and more often on this site. You've not been afraid of the Dark Side!

    Regards
