awesome composition and shot. I'm seeing a lot of compression artifacts, though. Either from cropping or resizing, not sure, but it really detracts from the overall image.

looks like something went wrong with the resample? Looks jagged around the meditator

This is a very beautiful image, the colors and the shadowing are nice,along with the man being photographed off center.

Your hiker looks a little pixilated, otherwise this is a beautiful photo. It is a stretch to the topic, but I like it!

I like the concept of this shot, but it looks over digital to me, the lines are choppy. Sadly as well the sky is hazy. I bet this is overwhelming on a clear day. Really enjoy this concept/view.

The subject is really pixellated - particularly his/her leg. You should look at using the full 150Kb for a picture; this is hampered by too much compression.

Hi. I think this is a good view, though you may have benefited from more of it in the fram and less hill. I think you have lost some definition in the resize, and the man has a bit of haloing from sharpening by the looks of it. Nice fluffy clouds.

It's a stretch to make this meet the challenge, and the picture looks very pixelated to me. Good idea, but it's better at a higher quality and in a different challenge.

horizon is tilted, man is pixelated.

what a great scene. love the cropping to get the hiker above the valley below. However, I see far too much pixel noise in this image - especially noticable around the hiker - the outline is very jagged as if it is blown up too much.

is this cropped so much or are those terrible pixels an artefact from scaling?

Great view but looks very pixelated for some reason which is a shame as it distracts from this nice image.

Should be titled, "Vote ,Clean Air Act!" In fairness its a good pic.

Nice composition. To me it looks a bit fuzzy - still beautiful, though.
03/07/2007 02:30:25 PM
Lovely vastness - beautiful. Just worried about the pixelation that's happening on the figure's back.
03/07/2007 01:44:08 PM
Good idea for the challenge but I think you need to work on saving your photo and compressing......the mountain and person are all jagged.
03/07/2007 12:12:39 PM
But, watch out for the wrong step off of that thing!!! *smile*
03/07/2007 10:42:26 AM
hiker is very jagged ...
03/07/2007 12:32:43 AM
beautiful, great use of balance to accentuate the height here. It is a bit bright though and could use some darkening I think.

aah, too bad for the pixelation, must be some artifact of resizing. Perfect photo for the challenge - has it all, message, and wow factor. Except, did I mention it, bad resolution.
