I suspect some people will think it is not minimal enough but I like it. Hopefully 5.5+

WOW!! 7.14 at 100, totally unexpected!


Thanks for your comments and votes!! I am absolutely amazed to get 3 ribbons in 4 weeks! And a bluey! WOW!! I did not think this image could win! And there were so many great images to choose from.

PS I just wish I could finally get an image into 1x to complete this terrific run!

PS2 I should also thank the weather we have been having - frost and fog so often. It has been unreal. I hope I can capture sun rays through the fog this winter too. They are my favorite.

This is such a beautiful scene.

This is such a spectacularly subtle image (and I think we know whose it is) that I feel like crying seeing the ruthless black lines killing it! It frustrates me deeply. It would have been a 9+ but I lower it to 6 7 upon looking at it several more times. And as of the last look, I wish the mountain would be a touch paler to allow for the layers of air. Nice images get more and sometimes harsher comments!

Love this shot and it's one of my top 3 so I expect to see this on the front page.

this could be a winner. Such fantastic light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2011 10:40:36 AM
beautiful as if the light painted the hills and valley
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2011 01:46:53 AM
Beautiful shot. Love the contrast between the valley and the mountain, you could split the picture in half and still have 2 great images!

Very intriguing image. I keep coming to it. Though it looks minimal it has so many interesting details to see. Bump.

Not sure how minimalist it is but its definitely a very beautiful landscape, great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a panorama I'm a little jealous. Great landscape with minimalist elements within..10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/08/2011 11:13:39 AM
WOW! 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2011 04:05:37 PM
I really don't know if this is minimal or not, but it is a beautiful shot so I guess I don't care.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2011 01:01:58 PM
Lovely shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2011 12:43:35 PM
I love this... the only thing that catches my eyes and keeps me from scoring it higher is what appears to be an error in editing...along the top of the mountain ridge there is a halo effect that is more noticeable then the rest of the image. Still an 8 from me, beautiful shot

Stunning

this is nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hmmm this is surely one of the best of the ones that will be deemed DNMC. The bottom half is definitely minimal. I think some may feel the big mountian/hill in the back is too big for minimal.

I think the mountain is dark enough to just about cancel out its "largeness"

I wonder if the sky was completely removed by cropping would have made the mountain seem even more "minimal" than it already is.

I'll go ahead and give this an 8.

Nice shot. I guess I should try gettin' up earlier for scenery like this! Just wondering, do I see a grad. neutral density filter on the upper half of the image?
