I hiked Laguna Torre in El Chalten, Argentina with my friend Brett and managed to snap this photo with my iPhone. It was supposed to be rainy, windy, and cold, but ended up being none of those!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Congrats on a very well-deserved finish, and I am going to disagree with those saying that the hiker shouldn't be there. Brett helps make the shot by adding a human dimension. OK, maybe he is a little dark, and perhaps shooting him from a bit farher back so he would be dwarfed (even more) by the mountains would have helped, but still this is an excellent shot. The chunks of ice make me shiver! The scenery is fantastic, and the peak of his hat is echoed in the mountains behind.

Please keep shooting and entering challenges here, you have an eye and I think you could kick some butt here :-)

Wonderful scene, so majestic. The person seems a bit dark for the scene, but it does not take away.
