The Olympic Mountain       ©2013 Adirondack Gal
Sony SLT-A77V       1st place, 202 points
1/59s, f10, ISO 100, 82mm, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cloned out two small distractions, adjusted levels, USM, and resized for web.       Extra Info: This capture was made 15 minutes from my home. The snow covered mountain in the background is Whiteface Mountain. It was one of the venues of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics hosted by the tiny village of Lake Placid, NY

    Wish I'd been around to comment but at least I picked it as #1. I would have commented on the way you captured the whole dynamic range but I see several others have notice that too. Well done.

    Wow! I want to thank everyone for their comments and votes. There were some super images in this challenge, and I honestly didn't think I would place this high!

    a well captured winter scene. IMO I would have reduced the amount of snow along the bottom and make more of the rustic fencing.

    Beautiful scene. It satisfies me photographically in every way.

    A fine entry! The DOF is impressive. You were obviously aware of the best time of day to take this, as the lighting is quite special. There may be a bit too much of the tree in the foreground, but I consider that a minor point. In my favs.

    I nearly gasped when I saw this, I've take a similar photo in NZ and thought you copied, it lol!

In my faves, well done.

    Nicely composed! I feel the cold and like the play of sunlight on the mountains.

    Been to Lake Placid twice both times in the summer. it is a beautiful area. Day was up on Whiteface it was so windy & cold even for the summer but still beautiful. I'm assuming your facing somewhat east and that is setting sun hitting mountain tops, very nice.
