very nice selfportrait on a fabulous place, excellent

great to see another shot of Albanian mountains. keep 'm coming ;-)
Placing a man in the foreground adds al ot of debt and feeling of size to the picture. It was definately a good idea to place yourself there. I just feel you are too much in the centre of the composition.
In this case it would have been better if you were places a bit more to the left, so we can look towards the mountains together with you. The composition will get more dynamic this way.
And oh yeah...your signature looks a lot better now!

Very nice mountain scene with good colors and lighting but I prefer you more down.

So not relying on your timer this time, hat'd be a bit much. Well I guess that still counts a self portrait, why should the remote conrol be an actual person. Maybe I'd have angled the camera slightly to the right for this one.

beutiful one, but yes, you place your self in the middle of the pic. And there's no dynamic effect from the pic. If you're willing to wait for the sun or adjust your self where the sun's shining, it'd bring a lot of dramatical effect on the pic.
Anywy, great job man!

Never imagined Albania like this - beautiful. The composition is not the best ( man in the middle ), anyway good shot

effectivement une bien belle photo.
dommage que la personne soit si centrée.
de bonnes couleurs et netteté.

Superbe photo Aurel !
Paysage magnifique, mais dommage comme le remarque AlainH que le personnage soit si centré.

A cute photo idea. Very good impression of a lone man and the might of nature. I really like the shot, Aurel. Tom

Heeyy... How are you friend ?
Can you come in my favorite archive ?
Thanks, Welcome :)

Awesome Aurel! Can be cropped at the bottom a little. and it must have taken a lot of patience for the local man to wait to click untill you reached the peak..!Worth it!!
andreineamtu (466) 2005-09-07 4:55
:) that's a good shot.
ayobami (1353) 2005-09-07 9:17
Stunning! What a wonderful view, and must have been an incredible feeling! The only thing I might suggest is cropping it slightly on one side or the other to take away such a central focalpoint. Great image though!
MON (135) 2005-09-07 10:07
Yes, very amazing shot. The picture is very sharp. Maybe composition would be better if you had been more to the left. Well done!.
knmart (106) 2005-09-29 16:26
excellent picture of yourself and also of the mountain sharpness is good aswell as the couloring of the snow and sky
Mistral (15402) 2005-10-23 16:31
Very nice photo with dramatic background. Personally I prefered you more on the left side of the image to give more importance to your sight toward the high mountain.
Impressive pic, anyway!
chappy77 (306) 2005-10-23 16:55
Great pose! You set this shot up very well.
canbalci (219) 2005-11-24 3:57
Excellent picture. With yourself in the picture, we get the feeling of depth in the photo. Great shot.
LEA (4984) 2005-11-24 4:05
Excellent picture. You are in the middle of the moutains so, why not in the middle of the picture? Never imagine Albania like this...
jorbidd (25) 2005-11-27 5:33
Its a nice shot, nice to know the Alps there.

Estį um espectaculo!!! Linda!
retesh_gondal (173) 2005-12-27 11:20
adventure at its best!
great shot and the local man did splendid job to take the perfect frame. Great post!
iGirl (1223) 2006-01-14 7:10
Incredible! My favorite thing about this shot is how the foreground elements (the rock and you) are dark, but the background elements (mountains and sky) are bright. The contrast really draws the eye into the photo!
ancevski (3358) 2006-01-17 20:33
well done, I like the posing :) It is like you have reached the top of the world :)
evanrizo (456) 2006-04-17 10:17
Nice Photo I like it.
I believe that if you were a little nearer to the down line of the image, would be better.
bondsteel (182) 2006-04-17 10:35
Shumė foto e mirė me njė peisazh tė mrekullueshėm tė Shqipėrisė. Nga kritikat qė lexova mė poshtė, mė erdhi tepėr mirė kur disa janė tė mahnitur me natyrėn e Shqipėrisė.
Sa i pėrket fotografisė, ēdo gjė ėshtė ok, pėrveē se mendoj do tė ishte mė mirė sikur ti tė ishe mė shumė nė anėn e majt ku do tė dukej sikur je duke i vėshtruar malet.
tsangclare (130) 2006-04-19 22:32
I like the sharp colours and its composition! Well done!
Tibo (1904) 2006-11-23 18:01
Hi Aurel! Absolutely beautiful! Can't believe you went to such place by yourself! Tripod is the photograph best friend in my cases! Well done!Tibo
cepekdong (3676) 2006-12-06 10:59
a really niced picture that cries for a frame and bigger size !
djslim (552) 2007-01-30 10:10
fantastic! appears to be a very dangerous step. good effort on framing the shot when the subject wasnt even in it! tfs
doubay (2093) 2007-01-30 11:33
very nice panoramic shot of this impressive landscape. It looks more like Himalaya then Albania to me. I think you should post bigger sized photos though.
schobi (187) 2007-01-30 11:59
WOW - grandious landscape, really good work!
