I took this shot at Tonglu. It is morning, the first light of sun on the hut, snow covered land and the Himalayan range created such an atmosphere that I could not resist myself to take the shot and share it with my TE friends. It has an altitude of 10000 ft. The one and only hut for treker's at Tonglu is marvellous in look. You can see the panoramic view of Mt. Kanchenzonga family from here. You can reach Tonglu either from Manebhanjang or from Dhotre, the distances are 14 km and 6 km respectedly The land covered with snow in winter.

The composition idea is good and the view well exposed but you should have framed it lower not to cut the tents
Have a nice day jY

an interesting place and reportage. Good composition. Nice colours and sharpness. I like it.

The early light on the hut is beautiful. It is a pity the bottom of the tents are missed off, but the framing to include the background mountains gives us a real sense of place.

I like your framing, that superposes the refuge with the mountains of the Himalayas in background.
The light of the morning early to this altitude is magnificent, offers us a beautiful luminosity and a few very natural colors.
The scene is dynamic and spontaneous.
An excellent work.

Not enough foreground for showing the scene.
I suggest you to take a lower position for next time.

I like the colors combination and the light management,
clarity and sharpness are also good,
just one more thing,I would have it differently framed,with more space on the left and bottom :)

I think you could have framed a bit lower, so as to get the whole of the lens & perhaps a bit to the right to get more of the mountain peaks. Otherwise this is a good picture in fine light!

splendid the view of Mt. Kanchenzonga from this POV as the characteristic residence in this altitude.I like the clear colours as the brilliant of the light.Well done.
PS Do you know what it means "Namaste' in Greek?

The concept and the settings of this shot are excellent, only with the framing I have a bit of a problem. In my opinion you should have included the bottom of the tents as well. Thanks for sharing
