The South Face by XavierJamonet The South Face by XavierJamonet
Morning light on the south face of Mont Blanc in Alps, after a cold night near this unnamed lake...
Unfortunately, the sky was a bit empty, with no clouds, but there was also no wind so I could get this reflection...


Canon EOS 5D mkII - EF 16-35f2.8 L - Lee nd grad filter - tripod

Excellent transition from the rocks to the reflection, Mount Blanc, into the sky.

This is so beautiful!! If it were my picture, I would have included more of the sky and less of the lake...but that's just my opinion.

It didn't need anymore clouds to make it stunning - beautiful shot the way it is.

A very nice shot, clouds, while they might obviously add something, really aren't necessary at all. I like the fact that this image basically has no real "center", it almost only consists of the foreground with the stones in the water and the background with the mountain, I would probably count the reflection on the water to the background in this case. I know photos of that sort where the foreground consists completely of water, which, while still pretty good I always feel then that something's missing, but here the foreground is well-chosen.

Quite wonderful, so sharp and cristalline then diving in mud and rocks... Perfect transition. Did you use a polarizer for this or only ND grad? Kudos for this wonderful shot! :flame:

One thing though, maybe the mountain and its refletion could be a little more in focus; the stones in the water give the picture an interesting twist, and cutting that would probably make it a little less interesting but since the stones are not the prettiest thing I'd give it a shot. :)

GORGEOUS. Makes me wanna go hiking, and I usually hate that... but that's something different when there actually is something except personal success waiting on the top of a Mountain!
