This is the second photo I took at the top of Copper Mountain - I'm about 3,660m high when I took this so it was rather cold and windy.

Thankfully I didn't have to hike to get up here as there was a groomer taking the willing skiers and snowboarder to the top. "No easy way down".

A lot of the comments in the previous photo were addressing the the poles and there resulting effect on the composition.

Would love to know your thoughts on this one as, compositionally, I think it is slightly stronger. The other photo is a row or two ahead of this one so you can compare if necessary.

Thoughts?

That looks very bleak, you've captured it well. You can almost feel the cold coming out of the screen.

I think this is much better noew Ben, following my comments on the last one there's a good flow of the poles through the picture.

What I'd suggest now if you're not too purist is to quite simply clone away the top of the tall post where it breaks the frame, just a bit above the rope. Then hey ho it'll really work
