Hi all,

This is a picture of Eiger-Monch-Jungfrau( from your left to right) all 3 peaks are visible from a beautiful village called Murren, which is reachable by a cable car and then by a mountain train ( The same area that was shown in Bond Movie "Her majesty's secret service :-)) . The journey through the cable car and the mountain railway all the way from Interlaken in breathtaking, and it is one of the "must see" in my list :-)

Note : I have use a polarizer with 28-105 lens given to me by Satish for this trip :-)

Thanks for dropping by.

Hello Goutham

Good pov with great sharpness, vivid colours and details

Nice standard lens view :) I like the frame not the usuall never ending wide. The CPL has given a blue cast too.

Hi Goutham,
You have been travelling again and you have brought this magnificent picture for us to see and enjoy. Wonderful shot of these snow clad mountains, the light and shadow effect and the superb sky details. A great image and you have done well to portray it in all its glory. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.

Namaste Goutham,
It's a beautiful shot, I love the snowy mountains and the blue sky.
Did you enjoy your stay in Europe?
Where else have you been, also to Germany?
Show us more of your journey, bye

Hello Goutham,
Looks a bit like the three Tetons in the US, the way you photographed the Jungfrau and the other two mountains.
Well done

Hello Goutham,
Nice to see the 3 famous mountains together. (I can see them from Bern, if there is good weather). Good that you had a polarizer with you! You were lucky to have blue sky to make this good picture. I will be around next week, I'm waiting for a sign from you.
have a good evening

Hello Goutham,
You are a lucky man my friend, travelling to such magnificent places. This is a splendid mountainscape with good depth exposed expertly. That polariser surely deepened the colour of the azure sky and made the clouds more "visible", I think a skylight filter might cut the bluish haze towards the distant peaks, but still, this is a fine image indeed!

These are some beautiful mountains. Sharpness is reasonably good even though the aperture is pretty wide. Compositionally, what bothers me a little is that the frame is divided horizontally right in half. I think all that sky pressing down on the mountains makes them feel less grand. I think, had you included more foreground instead, you could have retrieved detail in the dark areas on the computer.

Hi Goutham,
Great to see you posting from Switzerland. The webalbums look great.
This picture brings back memories for me. I have been there when I was a child.
I think you have captured the peacks in a very impressive way.
I like the way the sunlight shines on the tops against the great looking blue sky and with the trees in the fg.

Hi Goutham.
Nice story and wonderful shot of a lovely place. I am a steppe inhabitant and watch such impressive pictures with great pleasure. Superb quality of the shot, wonderful cold colour palette and razor simply crystal sharpness of all details. Well done and TFS.

As per my personal preferences, you are in Switzerland at the right time of the year, Goutham. This view of Jungfrau and other peaks is breath-taking in its sheer beauty because of fresh snow on them. The polarizer filter has given the sky just the right tone of blue and the contrast between the sky and the snow is beautiful.
I have always dreamed of visiting Switzerland in winters. Through your wonderful picture, the dream is partially realized. Thanks!
BTW, did you look at my mountains pictures I took in October this year?

Hi Goutham,

Again a Perfect shot of these massive mountains
Thanks to Satish for the filter it works PERFECTLY

TFS unle Thijs
