The image is of the shadows and fence bordering a red run at the Sierra Nevada snowboard/ski resort in the South of Spain.

I like it for the crisp saturated sunshine sky, the fluffy texture of the snow, the wiggledy shadows and the alluring perspective of the fence snaking over the horizon. I took another shot from the same spot, very similar but including the right hand post set against the sky. I prefer the one youre looking at now I think its more captivating because youre immediately involved with the fence. But Ive uploaded the other image as a mod (a backward crop if you like!). Tell me what you think..

A brilliant shot. I love the way both the fence and the shadows provide lead in lines. Well spotted.

Nice shot, the shadow lines along the fence line leads you right through the shot.
Nice work.

Just thought I'd add yet another comment to this. If you scroll the image up and down repeatedly you'll find that the fence does a wee wiggle! Had a giggle at the wiggle!

(Sorry, yes, I know I'm crazy).

Gav - congrats on the RC. Well deserved on this one. It's a reaaly strong composition. As an aside, is Sierra Nevada good for skiing? John

Really pops in the larger view. I like that you can see some background through the railings of the fence as well. Gives a bit more context.

Excellent photo Gav. I love the line the fence takes and it's contrast against the snow. The captured shadows, colour, lighting and composition are all superb.
