Digital Art category, not Landscapes.
Beautiful, but manipulations are obvious.

Congratulations on your 1st Place Win! I just wish I knew where in the Cascades you managed to find this fantastic vantage point!

Marc E. Adamus

member since: 10/6/2004

It's beautiful but faked. This isn't a "vantage point" it's a manipulation. It's not landscape photography but landscape art in my opinion. You can't find this place, it dosen't exist as rendered here naturally.

Marc E. Adamus

Let me elaborate. Without any technicals or explainations provided, all I can see is trees that don't connect with anything, obvious cloning below the mountain, unnatural tonal separation between upper and lower frame and distracting halos around the peak. This leads me to believe that this is either a sloppy exposure blending job or more likely a composite of two or more different images. Being more forthcoming with technical info would reduce the need for speculation.

Astounding, just astounding. As a lover of landscape photography with a special love for winter scenes, I say again: astounding!

What lens were you using? The sharpness here seem to be very good.

Kevin, this is indeed beautiful but I really wonder if this is the scene you saw or have you digitally cloned some parts - I dont mind, either way it is beautiful, but would be nice to nice how you got this shot

Holy cow, it almost seems like some fake scenery shot it is so perfect. Your snow shoes were certainly worth it! I could die happy taking a picture like that I think.
