Wow, Mario, way to man up and withdraw your winning entry. I'm very impressed.
billythek: So, if I read your description right, you didn't actually use VSCO for this?
Well, after reading the rules, I don't see that you broke any of them. The description says the idea of the challenge is to edit the photo using VSCO preset, but the processing rules don't say you have to use VSCO, and that you can process any way you want.
So, if I read your description right, you didn't actually use VSCO for this?
Ed at Ridersite: Congrats on the win. My favorite.
Did you turn & take it looking back?
Sorry for the slow response, I just noticed this question. No, the footprints were already there, and I thought it was interesting with the cloud and all. I did crop some, to get rid of some distractions.
upuaut: Great composition. Looks blurry for such a high shutter speed.
Thanks for the comment. Maybe I should have sharpened it more.
Thanks, folks! Was wondering what it would take to finish high in one of these. There was some good competetion!
Whatever it was you were drinking when you thought this challenge up, I need some of that!
Well the challenge is 8000+ meters. That could be taken to mean 8000 plus a negative number.
This is actually at ISO 102400, don't know why it says 65535 here
