Congrats tigmo, that's an amazing shot!
I was a little disappointed though by the dominant blue color, so I authorized myself to play a little with your pic!
what do you think of this version?

such a fantastic photo. I think that this completely conveys where I want to be right NOW. If only I could snowboard down those slopes, hit those jumps.....and fall into a crashing death.

You have done two things for me here. One, the picture is excellent. Very well done. Secondly, I did not realize the extent of the climate variances in Iran. I need to work on my world geography more. Thank you for posting.

Beautiful. Well worth the blue.

Oh, my! I think Heavenly Father knew you needed just the right weather, and here it is!

I have seen professionally taken shots from explorers which were not as good as this - what wonderful scenery! I am a bit surprised that you got such a shot on an ixus - I must revise my opinions!

Very lovely shot - you must have laboured hard to get to this point, but it was well worth it.

I would love to see others from the days photos, if there is any chance!

Incredibly beautiful. Congratulations on the ribbon.
From Wikipedia Dizin for those, like me, that don't have a real strong picture in their head of the region.

Magnifisent view. You really got some good light for this shot. I wonder how many you had to take to get just the right light through the clouds. 9

One can certainly feel the silence in this image. Very nice depth and clarity too. 7

Absolutely stunning. It doesn't even look real. The mountains look so smooth and yet so jagged. The lighting is perfect. Amazing, amazing shot. And I really get the silent feel too. Great work, I am impressed!

Ah, just a magnificent photo. Honestly, a place like this makes me think of wind sounds. Still, with such a beautiful composition, I'll assume it's a really calm day ;)

This is absolutely breath taking. Wonderful job.

Can't compete against this... That is truly beautifull.

4 - Awesome scene - don't get why you didn't tweak it to let it pack more punch and refine the crop too.. The lighting/shadows over the mountains is nice. edit to add: I may have been a fraction harsh with my vote on this for this Challenge - nevertheless, Congratulations.

Stunning photo, says silence to me more than any other entry I've seen so far. Great work and good luck with the ribbons. 10

Front page, if not a winner. I sure hope you didn't climb up here just for the challenge :-) Incredible depth and detail, deliciously soft tones and crisp textures. Love the sun beams. My fave so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2009 10:21:39 PM
But for those dark edges in the front and especially black right corner (which IMHO, all should have been cropped out) it would be excellent. With them it's just good.

Gorgeous scene. Very wonderful light. I think this is a good representation of silence. There is nothing more silent than the high country wilderness. (When the wind is not blowing.) My fav in this challenge. Hope it ribbons! 10

Well, I can only imagine that you're getting quite a number of high "omg, how did you get this shot?!" votes.

Personally, I'll refrain from voting. It's majestic, but I can't imagine the wind up there to be all that silent ;)
