Metallic Cross, Mountains and Snow
 
These metallic cross are rather common on top of the highest mountains in Italy.

P.S. :
- cropping
- automatic ( or manual ? can't remember) levels
- automatic contrast
- sky saturation

Thats a nice picture. I like the fact that the snow isn't just flat and boring. And I think that the cross jutting up from behind the diagonal works well.

It is a pity that the shadow on the left is there!

But a nice pic for your collection.

Very intriguing composition, Brtsergio!

It really "works"!

Besides agreeing with what the others have said, I have a question: why are those crosses there?

Um...because Americans landed and walked around there first. So who, exactly, landed on those peaks?

Don't know who walked there first , but I think the reason is that maybe sense of religion in Italy is stronger than sense of Nation.

I mean, italian do not have a particularly strong sense of their state : Italy is made up of more than 50 Millions of people that feel they are a nation only when the national football team is playing against a stranger team in the world cup and alikes :(
