Another panoramic picture of Sölden ski resort taken from one of the peaks above 3000 m. I think it's good to cool down these hot days...

PP work: level adjustment, increasing contrast, sharpening.

Hi Kristof,

This is very 'cooling' for sure! LOL. All that snow and ice could hardly do other. :-)

Awesome winterscape. stunning and vibrant vista. Well composed and photographed. Great sharpness and not OE. Well done Kristof. TFS.


Hi Kristof,
Very cool scene, such an amazing vantage point you've taken this from. Really good exposure and clarity too, feel cold just looking at this! :). Nice work.

Hi Kristof.
Great mountains.
Very high scenery here and very cool as well.
Effective peaks.

The presence of the ski lift poles in the lower part of the frame really give this the sense of scale it needs - what a vista. Very clean tones in the snow, with a haze of distance adding to the depth of the shot.
Nicely done

Hello Kristof! Wonderful winter landscape, amazing mountains. Nice delicate light and colours. Good POV and capture, very good. Good luck!

hi Kristof
the mountains look majestic love the vignetting sky and sharpness and contrast.

A nice view Kristof - and well exposed allowing for the brightness of the snow. Nice sharp scene.
Some nice long runs there by the looks of it!

Beautiful work Kristof.

An amazing shot with exposure and focus handled absolutely spot on by the Nikon Compact.
i think everyone who's commented has said everything there is to say, so i can't really add any more except well done.

Ciao Kristof

Very cool scene,
A beautiful visual top of the mountain
covered by snow, I could witness a little
when I went to Peru, more exuberance here
and quantity is much greater!
So white, so beautiful, with super detail.


Hello Kristof :)

Amazing POV ! This mountain is so majestic and you managed very well to capture this coat of snow, my compliments :)
Have a nice day
