What do you think ?

Ummm... I like the colour version better, but this one is not too bad either, the composition is nice and the details is great, well captured. :D

Thanks for sharing


Beau paysage d'un endroit où je suis passé il y a deux mois,
Bonne journée

Hello Vlad. The beauty of the mountains and you show it well. It suits B/W I prefer it to the colour version. Excellent for a scanned shot! Well done. TFS. Cheers, Pat.

cand e vorba de ski, chiar daca doar in titlu, nu pot sa nu ma bucur.
prefer ( ca mai totdeauna ) varianta color :) - cerul arata foarte fain.
o iarna frumoasa si zapada buna !

Varianta color imi place mai mult...dar si cea a/n e buna! Superbi munti!


Really great view & shot, Vlad.

Hi Vlad!
I like water skiing,but I have not find a steep lake.
Your photo is beautiful.I think colour version is best for me , because I like contrast between sky and snow.

very impressive view here vlad :)
i think the b/w is the better choice here
it looks like natural b/w :)
well done :)

Although for these kinds of pictures (rocks and snow) I prefer b&w, in this case I like more color variant, first because of the sky, second because in color variant the fir trees give a feeling of 3D and third it’s not enough rock to give that balanced alternation of black and white.

Excelenta compozitie si POV, imi plac aceste jocuri de lumini si umbre pe munti. Frumos.


The colour lover, c'est moi. Imi place si color, ce e drept insa a&n e mai sofisticat...

Hi Vlad,

I like both versions. The B&W probably more as it's more contrasty!

Well done & TFS :)

Yup.. I agree..It's really worth it.. :)

This one had B&W written all over it! A very nice tonal range and an effective composition. Well done!

Beautifully done, Vlad, and perfect in B&W. Nice use of light & shadows to create some nice depth in this picture. Beautiful view of these beautiful montains...Well done!

Hi Vlad,
The light carves really this mountain. Exellent play of shadows and light enhanced by the B&W. The clouds movement make a duplicate of the mountain's edges. Splendid! Congratulations! Annie

Excellent work, I must agree with Pierre. It screams b/w. Amazing scenery ... wow!


Beautiful shot Vlad!

Ooops! Season's Greetings my friend. It is time to Enjoy the Holiday Season. Skiers are now happy as we did receive some snow. But in Europe , they have been begging for some too, I understgand. That is why you are posting an oldie (LOL!)

Sorry for my long absence, I posted less critiques in december. Too busy at work !

Keep on posting!

Hi Vlad,

that's a great shot, perfect details, I was almost sure it was a film....
I like the lighting the shadows which enhance the shapes of those beautiful mountains.

have a great day
