I think this is an excellent capture, a scene that doesn't present it self very often. The combination of fresh snow, dusted alpine trees, stunning mountains with drifting mist is exceptional. Overall the scene has been well executed, the colours are real the exposure is correct and timing is spot on. However I feel the composition is a little rushed, the tops of the trees in the immediate foreground are distracting and the sky dominates the image because of it's contrast in colour. This can be resolved with a crop, either a tighter crop, focussing on the building to the left or a panoramic crop maybe with a ratio of 2:1 to reduce the foreground and sky. Please let me know what you think.
I can see that here we have a tottaly great picture with an incredible image-analysis. Great work really. I like the addition of orange - blue. I also like the clouds in the scenery. It makes the whole image better than the usual winter images we get to see many often. The size and the colours of this image could make someone believe that this is a drean picture, and if you think twice you will see that this could be a painting. The house, the snow, forest in the behind, the path that shows us the way to home, clouds and the sunset colours...yes, it could be a pretty good painting. Why don't you give it a try, you never know!
Brilliant. It's like a three-color shot with blue, white, and orange, and the many different textures in the piece are phenomenal. If I may ask, where did you place the focal point before taking this shot?
Pierre, This is a fantastic boulot! I used to live in Jura, and being now in New York I must say that this picture puts butterflies in my stomach. I loved it there and you captured an ambiance that feels like home to me, no, not like home, like the home of my grandparents who used to live there.
Thank you so much for this. My absolute favorite from your work that I discovered recently.
Many years ago I was responsible for setting up an exchange between my dept in a Scottish Secondary school and a school for children with learning difficulties in Chambery. We had 6 wonderful visits including 2 weeks Classes de neige in La Toussuireand they came over here to the Highlands on 6 occasions. It was a great succcess and I fell in love with Haute Savoie....an absolutely fabulous region.
