Banhmi: Nice pic!Interesting camera/lens combination.
Thanks for your comment. I think many of Konicas Hexanon prime lenses perform well. This image was taken indoors with a 135 mm lens and a makro extension ring.
cmantx: I really liked the look and feel of this shot. It gives a feel of extreme cold but beauty also. I voted it as one of my top shots.
Thank you very much. The temperature was well below zero but it was not extremely cold. I tried different camera settings for maybe half an hour without suffering too much.
TheDreamingWatchman: Congratulations!I find your photo to be the most appealing one in the whole challenge.It's very calm, peaceful - but also a little bit eerie.
Thank you very much. It was a special evening, the first snow had fallen, the clouds disappeared and then the moon turned up.
alcaher: Great pic, i like the conposition!
Thank you. I appreciate your comment.
I just want to say that I like this picture very much. Well done!
b craw: Excellent abstract quality; angle, organization, within frame, light - all compelling.
Thank you very much.
Congratulations. I really like your image. Well done.
Farmer in the Dell: This is giant slalom or possibly super G
Yes, you are right. It is a giant slalom race.

This is a very good picture. Well done!
I just want to let you know that this picture was one of my favorites in this challenge. In my opinion it should have ended up a lot higher in the list. Best Wishes.
EinMM: Great shot but I prefer u post process it to balance the exposure between sky and ground, or use graduate filter.
Thanks for your comment. I am afraid there was no time to put on a filter. When I saw the light coming down that hole I just grabbed my compact camera and tried to get a picture. 30 seconds later it was all over. Best wishes, Starsta.
RuthC: Congratulations, Starsa, on this very striking image. It deserves one of the top spots in this challenge. Ruth :-)
Thank you very much and thanks for hosting this challenge.
I agree. Great work! This is a piece of art.
This is a very nice picture, my favorite in this challenge. Did you achieve this effect only by vertical panning or did you also do something in post processing? Best wishes, Starsta.
