Tim I LOVE this shot! I really like how you kept the tree layer on the bottom just to anchor the shot. Beautifully done.

Little bit fuzzy, but I know it's hard with this kind of image to achieve sharpness. Also, I know this is negative space challenge, but sometimes less is actually more.

Beautiful shot! The mountain seems to be floating, and all the sky at the top makes the shot unique and beautiful.

One of the more symmetrical views ... I should be able to figure out where its shot from eventually ...
08/23/2003 11:30:05 PM
The bottom part is really cool. I think you have too much space on top and also the sky seems to be banding or pixelating, or both. Oversaturated? Maybe... Good luck. Good shot.

the vast sky makes this massive mountain seem like a bump in the horizon - great juxtaposition. I think there is a bit too much sky however, its just a shade off balance..maybe if you shaved off the top cm of sky? :) (not that that is a great complaint, its still a fine shot!)

Thats beautiful, is that a ufo on the right there? 8

I like this composition 8

Ilike what you ahve done with this image, espcially croping the foreground trees. I agree that this fits the challenge, but Mt. Rainier is a magnificent mountain and should be more prominent in any image of it.

Pretty shot. I really didn't need all that sky to get the point across. Less is more. The mere fact that this picture has a beautiful 3D quality would have been enough. Cropping two thirds of the way down would have been just as efffective.

Not being able to vote, I almost didn't take the time to leave a comment on this, but I have to tell you, this is one of my favorites of the challenge. The only things I don't care for is the little white thing in the lower left by the treeline (looks like a water tower or something) and the white spec to the right of the mountain (looks like a plane maybe). I'm sure you had no choice but to have them in the shot, but the peak itself is so beautiful and natural, it's a shame to have seemingly man-made items touch the scene. Despite that, if I could vote, I would give you a 10. I absolutely love this.

Very nice picture! Good use of negative space! - 8

Negative space should have a purpose. This is negative space for the sake of the challenge.
08/18/2003 09:50:23 PM
For me, just too much sky part for the balance to work. Lovely colours, though. 6

A perfect 10 in my book.

very nice landscape shot I love that forest....

it is a bit grainy and there are some blown out spots... guess you could not do a thing about it, so it wont count in my vote...

This is great, try usin Neatimage of you have such a grainy image again :)

good luck in the challenge, v.

Such a beautiful photo and wonderful use of negative space. This makes me miss being in Boulder, Co. so much. Good luck !

08/18/2003 11:00:25 AM
I think NeatImage would do good for this nice shot

Interesting image, nice effort. 7 Morgan

I like this style, but it is overdone. This is one of the more interesting ones, though.
08/18/2003 04:26:15 AM
very nice. great blue colour. Even a mountain can look small, with good use of negative space
08/18/2003 01:11:37 AM
Nothing but the open sky could make Mt. Rainier look so small. A very moving composition and a beautiful subject.
08/18/2003 12:40:42 AM
Nice seting but too much haze in the air 9 from me!
08/18/2003 12:31:42 AM
Nice shot. I like the composition. Meets the challenge. Only thing is there are some white spots on the right and near the bottom that I find distracting but I\'m nit picking. I really find this shot effective. Good luck.

image is a bit noisy - rainier is a beautiful place, but i am not sure if the blank sky works for it well.
