Very nice, like the way you use the space to bring the feeling of someone is waiting for you, while it is pretty busy in the background it adds to the near spaces feeling of waiting. The virgin snow adds allot to it also.

Dustin I would love to be able to make any suggestions for improvement but after a few minutes consideration I can think of nothing. You have selected a great angle shooting from low down as well as using the seats to lead you into the photos. The story is told really well with the clean untouched snow while in the background there is busyness. The seats are longing to fulfil their purpose as currently they are just pieces of wood and metal.

Great vision to see this!!

The loneliness of the empty seats while all those penguins are nearby wanting to play instead of sit. Neat image.

Great image Dustin. Excellent contrast and very interesting composition. Like Mark I really can't think of any suggestion for improvement.

thank you everyone for commenting.

i was actually quite happy with how this one turned out too.


RE: Ektachrome - as Mark said, this was shot with my little F70EXR (EXR DR Mode at 800% and -2/3EV to retain snow detail)

A classic B&W. I like the way you darkened the edges to draw the viewer in.

A classic with god tonality and a strong 'message' to the viewer. Loneliness (almost melacholic) down below and hustle and bustle and laughther up that hill. Strong metabolical contrasts.

Very seriouse picture. Not exactly a happy one, but I specially like the texture of the snow. Powerful perspective by those benches!
