Snapped while snowshoeing, this is taken while standing on top of frozen Lake Agnes. Here the focal point is the island in the lake, as well as the Nokhu Crags behind. Taken a couple hours before sunset. Too bad panoramas aren't allowed for challenges, because this would have made a great one.

POST CHALLENGE: Well, a new PB right after my last PB! I'm certainly not going to complain about having a 14th finish followed by a 13th finish!
Thanks for all the comments.

The sky and upper mountain are classic contrasty material. I think your little tree mound lets you down a bit by being in strong shadow. The trees become mushy and the contrast is pretty light. Still, I'm not sure you would be safe if it were in sunlight because it might get lost in the mountain behind. Sometimes you just do the best with what you got. :)

You have excellent contrast in this shot, and I like the way the shapes echo each other as well. Good image, good score, and in a tough challenge too.

Well done! Beautiful tones and a scene AA might have photographed. I know the shadow is most likely from another peak, but it makes me think of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.

This one is beautifully rendered, with the deep foreground shadows fully detailed and expressed. For my tastes it's a little oversharpened, and the sky's a little too dark & even. I realize you had to take what you were given with the sky, but keeping it overall half a zone lighter then throwing a gradient in from the top would have given a little depth to the sky and made the imkage a bit more powerful, I think. Still, very nice work.

Well done and the composition works for me. Little bit of haloing on the left ridge but its minor. Great work. 7
