About or is that tall stand... of trees? hahaha. It was just an amazing sight to watch the setting sun and the different stages the forest went through, not to mention how quickly it went from being in the sun to in the shadows.

fyi... i believe that's Teepee Mtn in the background (part of the Canadian Rockies)

Imageopolis Featured Photo Critique Gary -- I like the contrast of dark tones to light tones in your photograph. It leads your eyes right through the image. Also, I like your means of framing Teepee Mountain between the two tall, bare-bottomed pine trees.

Cheers,
-Mike.

I was in Africa this summer but since then have simply been too busy with school to have time to sort through all my photos and to take the time for Usefilm... now, although classes still continue, I figured it's high time to revisit Usefilm... might just as well put that class time to some good use ;)

Had a bit of a break from usefilm and was nice to re-visit your portfolio. Some truly fantastic work.

A great achievement, that really deserves to be selected under the BIP! Your lighting/coloring alone is simply amazing! Such a special capture of tiny details under a light that is really not easy to capture at all! An image with the mood of a painting and the sharpness of very well done photographic work! And one of the best winter scenes I ever seen!

Congratulations!

Nick

Hi Eb... i agree with you in that the mtn peak is a bit on the bright side. But there was such a contrast from dark to bright that for a single exposure I think it wasn't too bad. Thanks for the comment. Cheers, Gary

Eb Mueller Eb Mueller   {K:24957} 3/6/2007
That's sweet and delicate and breathtaking, Gary! A small technical improvement would be to retain some more detail in the mountain peak snow.

Hello, Uncle! Mom was just telling me about your website and I decided to take a look! I signed up for myself--but I'm a bit bitter that I am only able to add one photo a day. Haha, your gallery is SO amazing! There are quite a few photos here that really caught my attention. I wouldn't mind having a print. ;)

Anyways, I look forward to seeing more photos from you! I shall definitely bookmark your page.
