[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tirano is a small town in the province of Sondrio, Northern Italy, and it is adjacent to the Switzerland-Italy boundary.
Tirano has two neighboring railway stations; one of them (that one I have used) is operated by the Rhaetian Railway and used mainly to take tourists and skiers to St. Moritz (my destiny) and other various ski areas. River Adda flows through Tirano.

Located nearby is the Catholic shrine of the Madonna di Tirano, a major tourist attraction.

Very impressive and dramatic B+W.Romantic mood.The electric tower is intrusive it outscales the chapel too.POV is great.Greetings Otto.

Hi Jose,
Impressive view with a fantastic balance of the light who gives a strange atmosphere. For me, the electric tower is too much (WS), but I like your composition !
Kind regards

Boa noite José, ou, como diria nosso Carlos Drumond de Andrade: "e agora José?" (estou me referindo ao comentário de Otto Berger) já que você foi fiel à paisagem e deu a ela um sentido simbólico que, no PB, se torna fatalista e desamparado.
Grande imagem, amigo.
R. :o)

Hi ! Jose ,
A beautiful mountain scenery, beautiful b & w gray tones are beautiful, the details of these trees and rocks are extra. The fog at the top of the mountain gives a dramatic effect sublime. Another beautiful place in your country that you let us discover and enjoy. Thank you
Best Regards

Hi Jose,
The composition, sepia tones and the foggy atmosphere make a powerful photo!
Love the acuity of details,they give a graphical or an etching look at the image.
Beautifully done! Annie

Hello Jose,
Not only the subject matter, but also your postprocessing with much desaturation really bring out the rough beauty of nature. Compositionally spoken, I think the different landschap layers create a spectacural sense of hight, still enhanced by the towering pylon on the top of the hill. Consequently, its inclusion in your photo makes sense to me. It also reminds us of the omnipresence of human technology and makes this picture look beautiful and gloomy at the same time.
TFS & happy 2011 to you and your family,

Love the B+W and the mood you have created here Jose. It has a touch of Ansel Adams in the tones and contrast. Lovely landscape.

Excellent POV and comp. very nice shot with nice tone.
Best regards
