    Im relatively new in Panachallenges and your comments are helping me a lot =) I usually do one Incatrail each year and this one is called Takesi, I live at La Paz (3600 meters) so may be its less dificult for me to walk there ;)

    I like this one very much, in my TT.

    Hiking up there is hard on the body! I like the lake and think it should be more predominant in the picture - the foreground is unattractive. The composition of the background is very well done - love the snow cap.

    This is one of my immediate favs! The blues and browns complement each other so well! The haze on the left at and just below the horizon is a bit distracting, but quite a lovely scene though. Would a UV filter have helped here? Just wondering...

    Beautiful scenery - and nevertheless I wouldn't dip my toe into the water. Cold, isn't it?
In my TT.

    What a lovely scene! The lake is so intensely blue - like a jewel. 4700 meters is very high - is it difficult to hike at that altitude?

    Now that is blue! Any idea how cold the water is?

    I really want to like this image; it definitely has potential, but is missing something in the way it is composed that makes it more "everyday" - rather than "wow!". I like the stark, ruggedness of the area and the blue contrast of the lake -- but because it is so rugged and stark and similarly colored, something else besides the lake has to sweeten the image to make it more pleasing to the eye. Some of these things might have been in your control and some maybe not: if the clouds were more dramatic / if a large, interesting boulder were brought to the foreground to draw attention away from the stark background / if some greenery or trees could have brought more variety to the color scheme / if the perspective was changed so maybe a distant valley or mountain range was also in the picture . . . SOMETHING more than what is pictured here to enlarge my visual experience. . . this would be a top choice. It is still one of my favorites, but could have risen even higher, in my opinion.
