The Patagonia - what an amazing place - this photo was taken in 2010 on a trip to Argentina & Chile.
We covered a lot of territory around the Southern region of both Countries - crossing in & out of the borders between Argentina / Chile.
I love the richness of the vegetation & the colours of the rocks in this region this photo was taken on the Chilean side in '' Torres Del Paine '' A famous National Park... Incredible place.

Excellent composition.Very nice range of colours

Those places are stunning, the big "needles" covered by snow, and large valleis with lakes.
Patagonia is know as "Fin-del-Mundo", an intriguing destination for muchileros.
Nice divided picture space, bordered by the barbed-wire fence, and back-decored by the mountains.
Have a nice week ahewad,

I am not so sure about the barbed wire fence, but I guess that beautifully coloured rock more than makes up for it. I like the layering effect and the wonderful depth. Also, the subdued lighting and muted tones.

amazing scenery composed and captured beautifully. Love the fg detail and the sense of scale it provides to this stunning vista. Wonderful!
Regards - Brian.

An impressive landscape of real wild beauty!
An attractive composition in different horizontal layers with alternating land and water.
But I don't understand well why you included the barbed wire. I even don't undertand why this wire is needed in a remote nature area.
Despite the overcast sky you're able to show us a very clear view with a fair colourful foreground. Well done!
Best regards, Paul

J'aime beaucoup ce paysage. La roche à l'avant plan donne de la profondeur à l'ensemble et les nuages très bas apportent une touche toute spéciale à la composition.

Hi Dawn - it seems people are divided on the barbed wire fence here, but I acutally like the horizontal and vertical lines it brings to the bottom of the composition, accentuating the division between the different parts of the shot well. Maybe the post at right could have been cropped out, but the post at left actually works well here, I think.
And all that is before we even get to the main parts of the image, the rich orange rock in FG and the beautiful cloud-covered mountains in BG. Both are well shown here, and the way the mountains fade into the clouds adds a great sense of mystery and majesty to them. Nicely done!
Kielia (20411) 2013-01-20 7:17
I appreciate a lot that you are presenting us the lesser seen regions of your interesting continent. You have composed a fantastic impression of this interesting landscape. The perspective is excellent. Thanks for sharing!
josepmarin (54997) 2013-01-20 7:20
in this good photo you offer us the grandeur and the huge natural beauty of this landscape, in a clear and deep image.
You have done a great management of the light, of the field depth, and of the quality of the colors.
It is a beautiful work.
PS: When you visit Barcelona in June, contact me and we can organize a small meeting, if you want it.
Noel_Byrne (7191) 2013-01-20 7:45
Wow, that is an incredible view! The snow capped peaks are stunning, and you have composed the scene perfectly, to include those colourful rocks and the fence, which adds extra depth to the shot. I loe all the different layers you have got here with the foreground, the water and the fine mountains. Really nice work.
All the best

Awesome capture of this world famous mountain range even with dark clouds looming in the background! Great lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Bonjour Dawn, Hi,
WoW! a beautiful landscape nicely presented and compose with great tone of colors and light,
Excellent POV. & DOF.with a sharp détails,
Nicely taken and done.
ifege (9408) 2013-01-20 21:17
A beautiful scene from detailed forground to the mounatins. I like the inclusion of the fence too.
Maybe a touch oversharpened (the clear white line along the lountain ridge of the left) but great anyway.
jhm (122298) 2013-01-21 5:06
Again a nice picture out of South America.
Three parts picture with the big rock in foreground, but absolutely the big mountains with snow tops in background.
You chose a wonderful angle this gives perspective and depth.
Sharpness and clarity are perfectly.
Composition and presentation be superb. TFS.
Have a nice Monday,
ourania (12227) 2013-01-21 12:53
a superb view that is very rich in interest, textures and colours. It's a captivating sight to explore, the neat horizontal layout of the of different colours and textures make the view very comfortable and pleasing. The contrasting vertical or diagonal patterns enrich the composition effectively (it would be even better if the pole on the right was not cropped a bit). Depth, lighting nd natural colours are rendered superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
abmdsudi (26183) 2013-01-21 18:52
The use of foreground is a good idea as part of the picture, but the point of interest is stretched beyond. This is a breathtaking, totally amazing work here, I really like how there is an echoing of the shape of the snow peak mountains in the grey cloud, rugged, wild area and well done with saturated colors truly a wild country. It is one of the most amazing parts of the world and you have captured the majesty of the place really well. Fabulous shot, Congrats
danos (73876) 2013-01-21 23:22
nice the view of this part of Patagonia,a place that is almost unknown to the most of us.I like the light and the colour management as the snows on the backdrop Mt.
jacquest (14058) 2013-01-22 3:58
Nice rock indeed with different colors with a majestic backgound of mountains scratching the clouds. I like the mood of this image.
Robert1969 (6152) 2013-01-23 8:00
One little advice: when a fence helps to
create an extra depth use it, when it
doesn't than is without mostly better
(less is more).
The beautiful surrounding and the great
point of view ensure that I forget the
fence and that I can enjoy from this
s_lush (15580) 2013-01-26 6:24
A highly scenic view, colorful foreground, nice compositional details, good management of light, colors and quality despite the gloomy weather. Excellent presentation of such a picturesque part of such an interesting country as Chile!
npecanhuk (53825) 2013-01-26 6:32
Even the presence of that fence doesn't bother me. I see a reason for that being there.
Colors, exposure, sharpness, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
adores (28154) 2013-01-26 15:41
What a magnificent view you're showing behind the fence!I like the colours and the composition - the background is magnificent with the clouds hiding the top of the mountains.
Didi (48872) 2013-01-27 10:39
Very nice view with dramatic sky
It was impossible for you to take the picture from the other side of the barrier
Little bit dark because of the high luminosity of the sky I have done a WS

Superb landscape of Torres el Paine
Best regards to you and Gus
maloutim (8580) 2013-03-17 18:36
A scenic route indeed ! And it does look an incredible place ! Lovely capture of the panorama starting from the golden rock, which then leads the eye towards the lake shore, the low hills and last the beautiful snowy peaks.
A breathtaking view, I believe.
Thanks for sharing.
fotka (2320) 2013-03-26 5:25
I see that you traveled through Patagonia and visited "Torres Del Paine" National Park.
The composition of the photo is very good with colorful rock and fence in the foreground and the mountains' range with summits disappearing in the clouds in the background.
An excellent pov, dof, colors, light and sharpness.
kato (6715) 2013-04-21 5:03
You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mountain range with snow, the calm/blue lake and huge rock in FG. It is visible to the place where still rich nature is left behind here. The whole is harmonized well by rich natute elements. And, it's impressive in the thick clouds which have covered sky.
