How do you get such stunningly sharp images? You must be as steady as a rock! I like how you placed the colorful skier in the leading line. There's so much to look at, I will be here for a while!

WOW. Perfection for sure. So crisp, clean and beautiful. I can see why it is both your favorite place and was featured. The little splash of yellow is a perfect finishing touch to this magnificent image.

WOW! This is absolutely majestic. The sharply crisp focus, that pop of yellow, the wide angle that takes in so much gorgeous scenery -- what a winner!

I see that almost any comment I could make has already been posted, Les! Obviously I'm not the only one who thinks very highly of this image :o))) Hopefully the judges will like it as much as we all do! It's such a fantastic landscape to begin with and the human element (especially in that bright color) adds that extra touch that should make this go to the top!

Congratulations on your 3 Finalists, Les! You pulled in nearly 1% of the very scant few Finalists available this month! ;)
I so wish we had winter like this here in VA; our one snowfall to date was about 4 inches, and gone in a heartbeat!
