mi piace questa inquadratura con il bianco che predomina e i colori degli sciatori a spezzare l'uniformitā della scena.
Ottima la luce e il POV,

If you know how to do it, it must be a terrific excperience to go down these slopes. I am satisfied just with watching this breathtaking view and enjoying the brightness of the photo and the strong colours among the pople.

A beautiful place, must have been some very pleasant days here in this weather and all the snow in the right place!This is a very fine picture where the curving ski tracks in the foreground add a loy to your composition. The red jacket is accurately placed at the third and the ridges far away are framing the persons in a very attractive way.

Hello ulfE, Surfing the gallery today, your picture popped right out catching my eye. This is wonderful snow scene of this area. I like the fact that you captured the ski tracks and the individuals as you photographed the mountains. Pristine and white, the mountains are the background, but also they are the main feature of the shot. Watching the Olympics on TV, brings this shot in to greater interest too. I love Voralberg having been there many times. Our base is Bregenz and we only go there in summer. Regards. Roger

This is both a breathtakingly beautiful alpine landscape photo and a good alpine skiing document. Excellent POV and composition and perfect snow colours in both highlighted and shadowed parts. Superbly managed light, excellent contrast and sharpness. A real feast for the eyes!

An excellent nad very efficince vertical composition with the skiers well located and which invite to discovery. The tops of the mountains give a very plesant graphic effect. The colors of the skiers arise in the white - well exposed - of the snow.
Have a nice evening,
