Great mountain view and good composition with the people giving a perspective as to how vast they truly are.

Really nice shot. Took a while to spot the people but it's subtle things like that which makes a good photo great.

Way off the beaten track, and a really impressive image.....Looks great.

Wild and interesting landscape! Technically it looks very well done. I'm not quite convinced that this approach works though. Getting closer to the persons would perhaps made this more interesting. I think it kind of suffers from the 'I want everything in this shot' syndrome. All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

Good time of day for this shot - the lighting and shadows create a nice feeling of textures. Nice sharp image - although you may have gone just a bit hard with the USM as the mountain edges against the sky have some haloing.

A great sense of perspective and scale, although I feel that the snow appears a little oversharpened and could do with a touch of local contrast enhancement.

wonderul shot, i would like to see it in black and white

The sharpening effect isn't working here. To much ps for fill in light. Still this remains one of the best shots in the competition.

A bit oversharpened on the skiiers and ridgeline, but otherwise a great shot. The white is a tad too intense for me. Great composition, really puts things to scale.

Very stunning, majestic image. Well done!

This is so majestic! It's the perspective of having the tiny little people in this photo that make it spectacular in my opinion. You get more of a sense of the grandeur. Great winter tones. One of my favorites.

stunning scene, only thing that bothers me is the haloing at the mountain edge

Not sure it's too far off the beaten track if there's at least one photographer and three other skiers! Just kidding. This is good though. Not brilliant but quite good. What I really like about it is the sense of scale the skiers give to it. The sense of three dimensions to the mountains is also quite good. Slight blowing of highlights but I imagine it's damn near impossible to not do it on a mountain of snow. All round, nice and 6/10.

Amazing scenery, well captured. Your tones, especially with snow, are very well handled! Perhaps a bit oversharpened, but a nice image! 8

serious oversharpening hurts this striking image; particularly disturbing is the halo on the right edge of the most vertical crag, and the haloes aroudn the skiers. Beautifully seen.
