That white bank of snow is really emphatic pointing like a finger directing the viewer to move deeper into the rugged setting. I like the strong contrast between that of the snow and the darkened slopes of the mountain with the clouds overhead complementing the white snow.

Highlights a blown and the shadows blow too!

The histogram doesn't show any spiking on the highlight side so they are not "blown." I
can live with the deep shadow.

I would have sworn you've posted this exact composition before, but it was
not to be found in your gallery. That said, it was fun reviewing your work.

You have a good memory Paul. It was up before a long time ago. Came across it
going through some old stuff. There was only one composition. I was on a rock in the
water just big enough for my feet and tripod legs.

It appears photocritique may have finally died?

It certainly is pretty quiet. Soon we'll have to call it,
"Where we post pictures to show Jan Bjorklund." ;)
