[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A close up of one of several prominent peaks around the southern perimeter of Erzurum. I tried increasing contrast but it made the reflection in the window more noticeable and introduced heavy vignetting which I didn't want. Taken early morning with a telephoto zoom lens.

A great Snow Mountain image by great winter lights
lovely view and details of the fields by high POV
well done CHRIS JULES

Hi Chris

Please understand these are simply my personal opinions and are meant to be constructive and not cause any offence. And, of course, you have the option of accepting or rejecting them.

I think this is an image that would have benefitted from the use of a polarising filter, thus giving the sky a deeper, richer colour and possibly bringing out a few more details in the snow. Also, I think the scene would have benefitted from the inclusion of something that would have provided a sense of scale. Having said this, the image is well composed.
As I have said previously, this is just my opinion. I know that it was cold and you were shooting through glass, but I can only comment on the image presented for comment.
I hope you forgive my being so honest and blunt. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Beautiful snow-covered mountain! But it look so freaking cold! Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. It's hard to photograph pure white snow but you did very well. TFS.

Hi Chris,
A breathtaking vista. I think the foreground peak is has the horizontal terraces with trees. That gives scene of the scale here. A beautiful shot.

Ciao Chris, great POV on fantastic mountain full of snow, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris.

I like the contours of the terrain that appear briefly through the snow to add more depth and interest....you portray a lay of peace and quiet.

stv ;o))

Turkey suprise me always about nature diversity. I like the workshop but light and white makes a great world

Hi Chris,

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the mountains. The good luminosity is giving soft colours to the scenery. Have a nice day.
