This is an excellent image. I really like the composition. Black and white is a great choice here too. The tones really add to the drama and mood of the scene.

Excellent the silhouette of this man lost in this great mountains landscape, the contrast is well managed, interesting effect with fog and b&w version, well done.

A very cool photo for a very hot August day! I love the B&w presentation and mystery fog.

L'homme en solitaire est bien petit dans ce décor alpin,très belle photo N&B.
La brume et les nuages forment un bel ensemble avec les sommets enneigés.

quelle image de ce randonneur superbe sur la courbe avec son découpage en noir et la belle montagne le mystère avec le brouillard la forme de la montagne superbe.
Bravo et amitié

Sometimes, you look through your archives and see shots that you cannot believe you overlooked. I think this might be one such shot! It is immediately captivating because of the cold, encompassing danger of the mountains and the lonely, tiny, unsupported figure battling against the elements.
B&W, for me, seems to add to the sense of chill.
Have a lovely day,
snunney (79973) 2014-08-04 4:13
An image with a great sense of drama to it. Captured at the opportune moment with the walker silhouetted against the rising mist. Perfectly suited to black and white. Great conversion from colour.
timecapturer (45587) 2014-08-04 4:31
an image full of impact and stark beauty which comes across spectacularly in this piece of monochrome magic. The human presence is what gives the shot power and he/she is just perfectly placed too! Awesome place and capture!
Enjoy the week ahead - B.

Swietne ujecie, wiszace nisko nad gorami chmury tworza niepowtarzalna atmosfere.
ourania (27060) 2014-08-04 7:53
this is a superb picture, an awesome description of the landscape and the experience. The lone figure relates to the scenery actively, it's great that he's placed in the middle ground, the view has vast depth and all the areas and textures that surround him are attractive and significant. The effect of the tonal range is so moody, the scene looks timeless. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
Noel_Byrne (21372) 2014-08-04 7:54
What an excellent subject, and a perfect choice to convert to black and white too, it suits your image so well. The mountains loom above the character in the shot, and create a strong sense of lonliness as this solo traveller treks through the scene. Really excellent image, thanks for sharing.
holmertz (37589) 2014-08-04 8:04
This is a fabulous composition. You managed a beautiful balance of light and dark areas, and the view of the mountains and clouds is truly fascinating. And still it would not at all have been the same without the lonely trekker walking along the ridge, perfectly placed against the foggy background.

Fajny krajobraz z archiwum.
Osoba dodaje splendoru tej kompozycji.
Kolorystyka powiewa nostalgia...

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan alpinista, planina sa snegom i trenutak sa maglom i oblacima.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view and a second ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown climbers, mountains with snow, and a moment of fog and clouds.
Good work, nice captured moment.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Dear my friend,

BEST and Thanks!
*** Best Regards,***
adramad (35591) 2014-08-05 8:23
Fascinating composition, so that in B & W acquires a timeless dimension, as nature itself in all its splendor, the person in back, behind the haze, gives us the scale of the grandeur of the place.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a nice day.
Graal (95561) 2014-08-05 9:54
bardzo fajny alpejski krajobraz. Ten turysta to mocny akcent w tym zjeciu. Bdb kadr i kontrast.

A great picture, I like a lot compo ! Perfect choose BW, congratulations
nikkitta (13490) 2014-08-05 12:36
Really personal and creative capture where the protagonist is the silhouette of lonely trekker
Good to post in B/W, that way the image is a timeless one
Well done, regards
mesutilgim (80522) 2014-08-05 13:15
Very nice b&w capture with perfect effect. The loneliness of the man within an endless seeming space. Good graphical effect.
TFS and best regards
jhm (135732) 2014-08-06 3:36
Archive picture are sometimes very nice also these with the lonely walker.
Excellent perspective and depth picture with black and white edition.
Sharpness and clarity make your picture very attractive.
Nice photo job, TFS.

Awesome view with a nice dramatic ambiance
Very good contrast
COSTANTINO (51850) 2014-08-07 9:16
Hello my dear friend
here we have a beautiful minimalistic shot
pretty enjoyable I love the presentation
of the silhouette of the man
lost in this black landscape
the human presence in my opinion
adds dynamism to the composition
have a nice time
SnapRJW (29318) 2014-08-07 13:14
Hello Piotr - The lone hiker adds to the impact of the B&W image. I like the fact that he strides along with his pack and is almost silhouetted against the low cloud.... the contrast is super. The scale of the landscape is nicely accentuated by his seemingly diminutive size.
An original presentation, well done.
eldancer1 (25562) 2014-08-08 7:21
Love the effect of the mist on the mood and having the person in the photo is awesome as it provided scale. Good use of the available lighting and it has nice details. Well done, tfs.
adores (34730) 2014-08-10 13:30
This is fabulous! The landscape is really impressive and the composition is perfect with that lonely person passing and the clouds surrounding the mountains. A great b&w shot!
fritzi007 (3058) 2014-08-10 14:16
sehr drammatisches Foto, ein Wanderer auf der Flucht vor dem schlechten Wetter. Das Schwarz-weiß Foto erstärkt diesen Eindruck, gratuliere dir herzlich!
ChrisJ (94828) 2014-08-11 2:14
The silhouetted hiker 'makes' this shot and great that you used a sufficiently high shutter speed not to get motion blur, which sometimes happens in my shots :-(
Fantastic graphism and tonal range ahnd the alpine snowcapped peaks make a superb backdrop. Tfs!
CLODO (29268) 2014-08-11 11:27
the lonely walker silhouette makes the shot! without it, it will be a common shot of mountains.
krzychu30 (15344) 2014-08-11 23:36
Zdjecie ma swoj niepowtarzalny "klimat".
Podoba mi sie tez w B&W,co dodaje scenie dramatyzmu.
mayjayne (3171) 2014-08-14 8:07
Excellent landscape shot, and what makes it so special are the effects of the light, and the significant subject in the centre. Well done!
PaulVDV (20699) 2014-08-15 21:29
Impressive mountain landscape.
The silhouette of the hiker is placed perfectly on the picture, right in front of the white fog.
Best regards, Paul

jmdias (52918) 2014-08-22 17:00
impressive composition. the small personage lost in the middle of these huge mountains are a fabulous subject. I liked the foggy mood and the shapes of nature here. marvelous compo, nice use of B&W. TFS.
Waylim (25160) 2014-08-25 18:18
Excelelnt shot. One of my favorite and it is rare to see a black and white photo on this site. This one is particular good with little person walking in this mountain that makes us feel so small, love the misty condition mood. Excellent quality and good composition. Love it.
