Bill,

I agree with John, it's MORE than ok! Great shot, and I think you did a GREAT job on the exposure (colours / contrast look just right to me!)

Just one little teenie tiny comment... for me the 2 small shrubs / bushes or whatever they are on I guess the frozen lake in the foreground are a bit distracting. I would clone them out... But maybe it's just a very subjective opinion!

However it's a great photo, I would probably print this out and hang in on a wall if I made it (that's what I do with just the 1% of my favourite photos... the rest stay in digital format!) So well done.

Paul

This is awesome! And I disagree with John's comment - I've seen far too many lousy photos taken at Yosemite. This one really does that wonderful location justice.

Beautiful evocation of solitude especially nice to find in a national park!

Stunning!

Certainly a wonderful capture of the Halfdome. I too have seen many poor pictures of Yosemite. I think one of the problems is that everything is huge and cameras can not capture the scenes as the eyes can. So, what we see is not what we get and that's the challenge photographing Yosemite...make what you get as good (or close) to what you see.

Thanks Ladyhawk.

Digicamfan - it is hard to find Yosemite without a lot of people in it. I usually only go to the park in the off season for this reason. I love it when there are not many people around. The winter is beautiful there. Have spent Christmas there before. They have an outdoor ice rink for the kids with the "Chipmonks Christmas Music" playing.

Tullio - your right on about how large Yosemite is. It is difficult to capture in a picture the shear size of the place. I find Yosemite humbling.

Just so everyone knows, Halfdome there is about 3000 feet higher (I think -than where I was standing) it may be a little taller than that.

Yosemite has the largest granite monolith in the world - El Capitan. Thismonolith rises some 3000 to 3500 feet straight up from the valley floor of Yosemite. It is one of the mostfamous climbing locations in the world.

It is a very cool place as is some of the other places in California. I am not a native but have fallen in love with this state.

Thanks to everyone that has commented. The thing I love about photoagraphy is the ability to share the experience of being somewhere or seeing something through a photo.

Bill
