*Critique Club*

Initial Impressions: Ouch, that kind of hurts the eyes. I understand the high-key but this seems overly strong. Nice composition. Blue Rendition is nice. Fits the challenge nicely.

Composition: The framing of this subject is terrific, though I think a little bit gets lost in the high-key element. The leading lines in the mountain flows nicely through the frame. I also like the "empty" areas juxataposed against the "busy" areas. It helps with the eye movement. Overal placement is great.

Technicals: Focus seems fairly good, though alot of this gets lost in the highlights. I like the over tone of this photo, not sure if this was a white balance mistake or purposely done but the blue just works. Sometimes it is hard to tell if this photography was an accident or purposeful as far as color and exposure.

Possible Suggestions: I think there is a bit too much post going on here. While I like the placement of the individual, the person looks overly sharp and it appears to have been done in post. I don't mind high key, but this one might have been overly done, actually I am almost tempted to see what this picture would have looked like with normal exposure keeping the same "blue" tint. The clouds looked like they would have been pretty dynamic if not blown out. Maybe a bit more verbose title.

Overall: Wonderful composition and it helps sell the image. I'm not sure of the artistic direction though, I like the blue tint but not the high-key.

This is something I procrastinated over last year, too. A 4-8 mile country ramble every weekend, but no proper hike. I shall rectify that this year.

Photographicly, a bit more detail to show the texture of the snow would be good, but very hard to expose correctly for. That said, you certainly have displayed the isolation and hostility of the environment.

Way too blown out. I can barely tell where the mountain stops and the sky starts. Also, snow should not be blue!

I am not fond of the overexposed look although I do like the blue.
