This is another shot from my recent skiing trip to Copper Mountain. Taken early in the morning as the sun was trying to break through the cloud / snow. It had this nice surreal atmosphere but lacked any contrast.

It was destined for B&W the moment it was taken, really. The colour version lacked any impact.

Would be great to know your thoughts

I like the atmospheric quality. The inclusion of the snow in the air gives this a very real and beautiful feeling. I find it most attractive.

Nice luminance , the snows acted as a good blanket.

Quandary with this image is no focal point.

It needs something for the eye to "lock" onto so you get drawn out into the image from that point , its rather busy as it stands.

Not so sure about the small snowline at the bottom , a bit like cutting someones knees off in a crop. Would liked to have seen slightly more to "weight" the image.

A nice shot as is, - not a lot you can do other than have it as a reminder of the trip.

Loaded a mod with a bit more contrast,and cropped a little of the snow from the bottom, but I see Dave has put a sea gull in his mod for a focal point which is an improvements.
