I'd appreciate any comments on this image, I took it a few years ago up in the Swiss mountains in summer, right on the border with Italy near the St Bernard Pass. I can't be sure if it was in Switzerland or Italy if I'm honest. perhaps the little row of stepping stones marks the border... Smiley

I tried a B&W conversion but I prefer it in colour.

Thanks!

Is a very pleasant mountain scene that unfortunately suffers from banal light. Looks like it was taken during the middle of the day or close to it.

Looks like an area I'd like to revisit in defining light, agreed...

I agree with Josh and Patricia, everything is in place for a beautiful photo but the light isn't there… Try to return and while you wait for the light, play with the rescue dogs.  Cool

Thanks for the comments, I think it must have been around midday. I'll be up there again (on honeymoon) this summer, I really like the scene so I'll try early morning or late evening depending on the direction of the sun.

Heck, I think the light looks fine.  It's a beautiful place.  However, I'd crop about 20% off the top and about 10-15% off the left side, which IMO don't add anything, to make the distant mountains a larger part of the composition.

Fallowing your instructions: the diagonals of the stepping stones and the shadows of the distant clouds seem to resonate more and I think the reflections works better when things are narrower.  On the other hand more definition across the terrane...  Bruce
