CloudBlow and the Icy Fortress by alexandre-deschaumes CloudBlow and the Icy Fortress by alexandre-deschaumes
New picture from Patagonia 1 month trip .

I chose a cold white balance and muted tones for this scene ; but still hesitating with the pure B/W version .

This was in the first part of our trip, reaching 'lago de Los tres' quite famous place just in front of this crazy fortress ( Cerro Fitz Roy ) .

What I really liked here is the cloud bow just above the mountains .

Here you can see the same mountain during the night :

I hope you'll enjoy this vision,

thank you

First, I love how there are so many different things going on in this one picture. Most nature shots I try taking are of one thing--sky, water, rocks, etc.. However, you can see a little bit of everything here!

What I like most about this, is the contrast between the light sky and the dark ground. The composition is amazing, with a good balance with the weight of the rocks and the cloud/mountain formations in the back.

I'm glad you chose to stick with a hint of color, but not too much. Black and white would have been stunning, but I personally love the touches of blue that runs throughout the entire picture. This is a beautiful photo--very well captured!

First of all this is amazing, i love how you have taken it looking up at the mountains making them look even more powerful .
The cloud that swings around the top of the mountain makes it look a bit like a fantasy world (which is a good thing). Also it is lovley how half of the water is like a mirror and the other half of the water is moving :)
Over all this looks very professional keep up the good work :)
And hope to see more of this amazing, brillant and stunning work next time :D good luck :)

Bye, bye :)

This is greatly composed.
It's dynamic, it's moving, the rocks seem alive.
Of all the mountainscapes I've seen, this might be the best.

Sick. Perfect in every aspect. I'm speechless (it doesn't happen very often).
