I can't understand why this photograph has so far attracted no attention. Maybe it's too low-key for most tastes, but I like that (low key is not the same as under-exposure of course!) And my experience of posting monochromes on this site is that generally they're not picture-postcard enough for the average TE punter. But it's got drama in bucketloads, and the symmetrical composition neatly emphasizes the near-perfect pyramidal shape. Excellent work.

Ciekawie wyglada ten samotny szczyt na tle dramatycznego niebo. Swietna prezentacja, super contrast.

Hello, excellent choice as a black and white image because the dark dramatic sky is superb for this kind of mountain landscape image. Excellent tonal range and good composition with a lot of fg.
the side light provided enough light on the left to illuminate that side of the mountain and give us a sense of what the mood and atmosphere was like for you that day.
A very fine b/w image worthy of any gallery and certainly one of your best

very impressive photo of an equally impressive mountain. it looks like a man-made pyramide (or the fang of a shark). i love the b&w treatment, the result looks very dramatic, almost epic.

An absolutely outstanding image. Real photography in my opinion. You have captured and presented to us the majesty, the essence and feeling of this landscape.

Great shot! I like it a lot in b&w, the landscape is really impressive and the conversion is perfect. I like the light and the clouds surrounding the mountain.
