This was taken using pantyhose over the lens. Not my ideal challenge topic since I got so many other fantastic photos on this hiking trip, but oh well!

I really like the colours in this shot, I do find the seedhead in the centre at the bottom of the image quite distracting but you have managed to create a nice soft effect on the mountains :o)

If I actually voted down for titles this shot would probably lose two points... ;-)

JK This looks like it could use a big boost in contrast and levels to pull out it's true potential.

I do not like that big yellow plant dead center in your photo.

If this is really a novice attempt, you did a great job. Beautiful picture - anxious to see where it is taken this time of year.

I love the angle of the shot and the way the forground softens the mountain.

Very nice composition, balancing the mountain with the wild flowers. The flower pod thingie in the bottom middle is a bit of a distraction however.

Don't care for the title, but assuming it is true...

If you tried to make this photo soft focus at all, you need to increase the effect. This is a very nice picture for this challenge because the softer focus would make those flower colors and the snow on the mountain have a nice glow, giving the whole picture a very dreamy look which would work well with your subject matter here. It would please my eye a bit more if the peak of the mountain was pushed over to the right edge of the shot and the slope came down from there. This is not a bad picture though, so look forward to seeing you get even better.

this shot is too blurry...could be sharper...Just Kidding!!

Nice shot.

Your novice attempt seems fine to me. Clever use of natural haze.

Not bad. I wouldn't think of doing a mountain seen in soft focus, but it does have that diffused light look. The perspective is good.

Your mix of warm soft flowers against somehow equally soft snow gives this a good feel. Peaceful and the sort of view that people would love from their window
