Thumb-up Thumb-up    from samwhitley/Sam (9,950) Send mail to this user on February 25, 2008 12:47:16 PM CST (2) Early critique


If this were made at sea level it would be one thing, but one of the factors rarely taken into account is degree of difficulty. Judged on difficulty alone, this would be a 3tu. However, difficulty is not the only factor. It is still a very nice photo, and the placement of the cross, the rime, and placement of the climbers are very good. The photo is a little underexposed on the faces, and that if lightened, would improve the shot. I would not recommend just lightening the whole shot, because the sky would wash out too early. The focus is very good, especially considerint a cell phone shot. Having climbed a couple of decent mountains, I am breathing hard just looking at this shot. Also, give yourselves an extra gold star for doing this in winter. Mine was in summertime and it was still bitterly cold on top. I can only imagine how it was in this photo. Good job & keep shooting.

Didi, I think if you play with the white balance on this, it could be a great photo. The snow looks purple and the men are too dark. White balance can take care of both.- Joe
