Le Praz

By GavMc
My first upload for a while..

This is from our recent skiing trip to Courcheval in the French Alps. This snap is of some of the chalets in the pretty little village of Le Praz, within a glorious winter wonderland of alpine trees, magnificent mountains, piled up snow, and stunning sunshine.

I like the image for all the reasons picture postcard perfect, as was the reality.

My only criticism is perhaps the darkness of some of the shadows (e.g. under the eaves). I tried dodging these out, but didnt want to overdo it, as that started to look fake, so on reflection perhaps the darkness is okay providing texture and balance.

Comments always welcome, thanks for looking..

Gav - Great to have you back again and with such a nice picture. Well done. By the way I don't think the shadows under the eaves are a problem at all. John
