[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Such as my previous upload, this photo was taken from a ski lift, too. I liked the untouched snow on the neighbouring ridge, so I created this minimalist composition that resembles a desert landscape. Only the colours and the temperature are different. :)

Hi Kristof,
Simple but composition vit excellent wintersccape.TFS.


This is a nice simple compo Kristof - sometimes the way to go for some subjects.. I do like the deep blue sky.. I also like the fact that there's no sense of scale in this - we have to think about it..


Hi Kristof
simple but well balanced in light and contrast
I think the level of snow her is min 1 mt
have good day

PS what about Silvio card?

Hi Kristof,

Hi Kristof,

I really like this one...from two reasons; simplicity of the composition and purity of the shot. So clear, pure colours and great contrast between the white snow and the blue sky. Wonderfl light.

Have a nice day,

hi Kristof:)

very creative idea with a wonderful contrast in colors and title.. pure, clear and simple but very effective..
have a great WE and regards:)

Hi Kristof, I like this minimalist approach, and I love that undisturbed snow too. Great simple shot.

Bonjour Krystof
A good idea
However I think that snow must be more brillant and dazzling (I'm sure you had spectacles...lol), so that I did this WS ; I hope you will lke it.

Hi Kristof

A simple, minimalist composition, that does indeed resemble a sand dune in the desert. The blue & white colours go well together. Tfs!

Szia Kristof,

so much minimalism is directly inspiring.
The "desert" association gave me the idea to a workshop. I hope you'll like it, if not feel free to delete it.

Minden jót :)
