Challenge: Hidden Gem -- 1,000th Challenge! (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Panasonic DMC-FX01
Location: Lech, Austria
Date: Jan 22, 2009
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 80
Shutter: 1/640s
Date Uploaded: Mar 9, 2009

Taken with my little pocket Panasonic earlier this year in Lech. Has more personal significance than necessarily being a fantastic photo.

-----

Thanks so much to all of you for your fantastic comments. And yes, I probably should have cropped this a little more although I wonder if it would have brought out more of the technical shortcomings of the camera I was using.

The blue and the white sand work so well together, looks like that's quite a trek to make.

I really like the pattern of ski trails on the otherwise pristine snow of the mountain. I also like the peak and sky background. Now that I look really close I can see several skiers coming down with 4 of them (I think) lined up almost perfectly in a vertical line.

great lines and I love that sky- really nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very fun shot. Intriguing. One thought--If you could zoom in closer (or crop and enlarge), I'd be tempted to crop off the bottom third. the tracks get very interesting in the middle, and the people make a cool line--here the bottom tracks demand most of the attention, and they aren't nearly as interesting.

Beautiful view and nice patterns in the snow. The people gives this a lot of dimension.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:01:59 AM
Would have been good to see them like a collar around the mount but that's a pretty good effort anyway. Well done!

very nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The blue is noisy but the mountain is great. I probably would have cropped out the sky and just got the skiiers. Nice subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:31:58 AM
I love how the figures are just dwarfed by nature. The colour of the sky is also stunning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:08:36 PM
I love how dark blue the sky is against that pristine snow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:58:17 PM
that looks like fun...me I like to sled...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:46:38 PM
They had spent hours so far, doing their best. Up and down the mountain, drawing the lines, spelling out their message.

Only time would tell if they had been successful, and as they put the final touches on the secret language that only they could know, they glanced to the sky and waited.

With a flash, the ship that hung there responded, and it was good.

They had saved their world from a disaster that none but themselves, would ever know.

Love all those squiggles and how they converge. The little skiers give a great sense of scale. I might have cropped this one a little differently, a bit off the bottom and left, leaving the convergence area in the lower left and really showing off those great lines.

I know nothing about skiing, but this looks neat.

Wow, its nice to have the people in the for a sense of scale. Great pic.
