Great pics everyone but after the winter we just had, I don't want to be reminded of it anymore!   :P

balaji, that's an interesting photo - I like the use of negative space with just enough detail in the snow to see what they are crossing.  The colors of their clothes and gear give the image a subtle pop as well.   The only thing you might consider is a crop leaving a bit more image on the left of the frame and a bit less on the right. It's a technique that gives the subject(s) a bit more direction and a destination as they cross the frame.  I like the photo, and it's well done, especially considering the distance.

Thanks for the valuable comment and advise, will crop. Will upload more in the coming days. Weather was perfect and at 13000 ft it was only 32F, Layered clothing helped me stand there with my gear for 4 hours. can't ask anything for more :). Did notice that my batteries were draining faster though.

Balaji: Very nice photo. And I do not agree with Mackguyver on the crop bit. What he says is generally the rule but I am not sure if it works for this picture.

I can see that too, sanj, and I really think a photo like this needs to be printed large - at least 11x14 to really appreciate it.  If it were my photo, I think I'd try both croppings to see which one I liked best, because at the end of the day, it's purely subjective and up to Balaji as to what he prefers.

Thanks Sanj and Mackguyver. I will try both options.
