The Schlern (in German) - Sciliar (in Italian) is the most symbolic mountain of South Tyrol (the northest province of Italy). It is by far not the highest mountain in our province (2563 m) but very central and visible from all around. It is also caracterized by the two needleshaped peaks on the right (Santner and Euringer peak).
I took this shot the same day as this one and almost from the same place. It shows another part of the Alpe di Siusi highland.

Well balanced composition around the landmark which attracts the view. The sharpness could be a bit better, and so the contrast. The former may be due to lack of a tripod, maybe from the processing of the digital file...

Adorable colors, great composition and very nice photo details.
I like it a lot. Well done.

Le paysage est joli, mais j'ai une nette impression de surexposition sur la partie rocheuse.
Nice landscape, but the rocky part looks overexposed.

A very nice panoramic view; lots of depth and much details to discover. Unfortunately I must agree that there is a slight overexposure. You probably had a very intensive sunshine that moment. Still, the picture is very good!

Great shot. It looks as though you really captured the beauty here. I agree with others that the contrast could be better, but nonetheless, its an awesome picture.

Another wonderful vista from Südtirol. I like how the alternating pattern of grass and trees on the undulating hills guides the view towards the rocky face of the Schlern. Good colors and sharpness; again my personal preference would be for some more contrast but I guess you expected that comment ;-) Beautiful shot, Günther.

Very good picture with great colours and wonderfull view, the huge mountains in the background are very good in the picture.

This is a very nice view Guenther. You are specialist in this kind of scenery presentation. I believe, from foreground to the background is a huge distance, and it is not easy to take a shot with a correct brightness&contrast settings. Sky and mountain colours seems a bit oversaturated, but with a sharpness you did a pretty good.
Very good work.

Paysage merveilleux, il serait difficile de ne pas se laisser séduire par cette merveille de la nature Guenther !
Une composition très réussie.
Une photo qui frôle le relief.
Magnificent landscape, it would be difficult not to be allowed seduce by this miracle of the nature Guenther!
A very successful composition.
A photo which touches the relief.

Un'altra bella immagine dall'Altoadige... come una foto può dare nostalgia più di tante parole!
La proporzione dei campi verdissimi in primo piano e della montagna rende bene il senso di ampio respiro della veduta.. proprio bella!

Another great shot Guenther! You succeeded in seizing the immensity of the mountain. You create a nice foreground to accompany your subject. All these little hills contrasting with the hign mountain are beautiful.

Wonderful picture of those mountains. The rocks are impressive there and I like the green color. Very well done!

Quello che io apprezzo di più (e che forse gli altri membri non italiani non possono fare) a parte il magnifico panorama, è la rada presenza di case. Da noi i condoni si sprecano e quindi ognuno fa quello che vuole, rovinando irrimediabilmente il nostro Bel Paese (basta farsi un viaggetto in Sicilia, per esempio nella Valle dei Templi per avere una conferma di ciò che scrivo). Ecco mi consola che nell'Alto Adige (ma credo anche nel Trentino) ancora siano rispettate le più comuni regole del Bello.
P.S: Guenther, ti pr4ego non mi smentire!

I htink this one is too sharp!(this was my first thought!) The trees in teh foreground are well choosen. The colors are good too, no need for more saturation!

Bellissimo posto Guenther!
Sono contenta di rivedere un po'di foto delle tue parti, attendo le prossime!

Another sight of this very beautiful landscape, always likes the very strong but very beautiful light and the colors, well considering.

Hi Guenther, this is a very nice landscape, sharp and well composed. But your exposure looks about 2 stops over on my monitor.

Dolomites is scenic and very spectacular of our eyes ..here it's an exemple of nature in contact with human pastoral activities .
Well done ( the chalet & alps meadow in particvulary )

Another excellent catch. Unbelievable colours and mountains silhouete.

Thanks for sharing this Guenther - I been to Tyrol - but only from the Austian side and during the winter - a great landscape to watch - even without snow - very fine quality and sharpness - fine work indeed.

A very nice panoramic landscape. Maybe a little overexposed, but it's a good composition. Well done.
