The photo shows my climbing partner Dan Shorb (US) just before reaching the summit of Ascarani (5580 m) in Cord. Apolobamba. It was the only day in a week that we had fine conditions. Fortunately they were perfect this morning.

Great light and a fine PoV for this scene. This has a very good DoF and the details are very good. Nice first shot. Welcome to TE!

Welcome aboard TE. A very nice, adventurous, first posting!
Good job on exposition here - almost nothing is burned out despite the strong contrasts. What I like most about this pic is the the contrast between the blue skye and the near-monochrone black-and-white patters of snow and rock. If it wasn't for the blue glove i would have thought that you'd desaturated the lower part. At any rate the effect is great (it might be enhanced further by saturating the blue a bit).
Composition-wise. Dan is a little too centered for my taste, but at 5600 one does not tend to think too mucj about composition.

Welcome to TrekEarth!
This is a fine photo with good color and depth of field. If you did crop a little from the left, it would help draw the eye toward that marvelous ravine behind Dan.
The two of you have to be in really good shape to have been climbing at that altitude.

Stunning location and stunning photo!. I really like the ruggedness and textures in the scene.
For my tastes, I would have converted this to a full black and white shot and enhanced the contrast to really bring out the differences between the rock and snow - but hey, when you've been up there and taken a good shot like this, who cares?.
