[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's ten years since I took this image in Torres del Paine National Park, but I can still close my eyes and be there in an instant. The air was crisp,the wind was strong and the colours were incredible. How astounding to be alive in the midst of this beauty!

50 ASA Velvia rendered the scene just as I remember it

Hi John,
I love your composition and the details that can even be seen on the mountains. Also the red plant in the foreground is interesting.
Is the image scanned or did you have a digital 10 years ago. I suggest that you select the dark brouwn part of the photo and try to bring a bit more contrast or light in it, than it will be a super photo.
Well done and TFS

Hi John,
This is a wonderful picture!
I think it's great you have posted here this photo after ten years, and wondering how many other wonders would be waiting to be seen.
This is an incredible good POV, you got everything here, flowers, trees, water, mountains, snow and sky, all of them of stunning beauty.
My only nit would be to clarify the part of the picure under the mountains, it's a little bit underexposed.
Congratulations, thanks for share and best reagrds,

Hey John,
Terrific mountain shot with a very rich foreground... Composition and sharpness are excellent... I can't decide if the flowers could use some more light (graduated neutral density filter) or fill-flash.
Best wishes,

Hi John,
A wonderful view with a perfect composition. I can understand that you can still pull this view out of your memory. I think all advise given are good.

Well there are mountains and there are mountains and then there are THESE mountains. what an amazing place. It is a wonderful composition with good fore, mid and background elements.

Excellent shot Dear John! Great colors and angle. I like the red flowers in the foreground.
