Great contrast, nice pic!
Great pic!! The weather is impressive! thanks for attaching it to my Threatening skies album!
If I remember correctly, the weather was not only threatening, it was already pouring down quite heavily at the time. Or just about to do so after I snapped this pic - in which case it was indeed threatening :).
Thanks for sharing.
Yes, the picture turned out to be better than I remembered what it was like on the spot.
What mountain Range was this picture taken at.Thanks for sharing your photo
I looked closer at the posting of the picture and saw it is The Eastern Dolomites. The Dolomites is a wonderful place I was there as a child remember it well, pictures like this call me back
Yes, the Dolomites are like that for many of us. You just keep going back every few months.
i like the sun ray down to the velly, dmiki.
I have witnessed the exact same weather once on my descent from Marmolada. It is like a total deja vu to me now. Great! Thank you for posting.
Maybe we were there the same day? ;)
hehe, i was there on 10 or 11 July 2006 last time, so I guess not :)
and moody photo of sky and mountains. A scene like this defies description. Thanks!
Well, true that it defies description, but it has inspired me so:
Such a great combination of tones and silhoutte combined with depth. The portal and the light rays are "moving" to behold, and the distant ridgeline just sits there timelessly, and quite as if it belonged in a Tolkien Story.
A lesson in composition and light, so simple to achieve, but not often found.
Simplicity is an art.
You are too kind / flattering me. Truth is, I just point and shoot with a simple camera. Nor do I have any theoretical background to taking pictures.
Well, many artists are natural. I neither have theoretical background. So unless there is something immediate to catch, I pan around a bit, try to get some foreground in, some depth and variation. Simple colours and combinations look good, and silhouettes can create good effects. I like vanishing points (tapering into the distance).
Though people portraits are often too small on the Site. I like to see people close up, like a 1/4 frame, though with the mountain still well defined. Not like the shot someone took of me on Velino - static, small, looking like a twot. I left the image there as a "how not to".
Take a look at Kenzo Akawa's Images. And his Four Girls portraits "A Tibetan girl-1. Now that's some photography.
Yes, Kenzo's pictures are truly wonderful.
Nice work to say the least. What a beautiful moment. SP needs more pictures like this one.
