Frankly, does this work for you?



Pano stitch, Otus on D800.

Well done Bernard!

I hope that the St Bernard dogs rescued you quickly after you took the shot.

It definitely "works," Bernard. I'd say it more than works. Bravo!

Sure it works, Bernard.
But Rob C would have wanted you to include some bikini-clad models climbing the scaffolding (and smiling).  :D

Love it, but I can't help seeing the structure in the background as a scale model. Looks like a still from a gerry Anderson programme... which is fine by me.

For me the image would have been much stronger if you had been a tad more to the left, so the branches/stumps framed the structure behind, as opposed to overlapping slightly.
Otherwise I like it.

It'd be nice to see full size version to properly appreciate the quality from stitched D800 images.
Likewise I always feel like Michael's work should be seen much bigger or preferably in the flesh, as a small web image is unlikely to do his work justice.

Looking at that relief I would guess he would have been in a crevasse as he seems to be on ridge.

I love it… It reminds me some local antennas and radar. You seem to have a real winter in Japan!

I have to be honest here. What's so special? I can't see it. Someone please explain.

Nothing.
Just a nice shot with a nice sense of depth.

To appreciate it properly you should, first, spend at least two hours shoveling heavy snow out of your driveway, and after you finish that, go back into your warm house, take off the snow boots and seven layers of coats and mittens, and fix yourself a good mug of hot chocolate (laced with whatever appeals to you).

After that, you can sit and enjoy Bernard's photo, thankful that you don't have to be out in it.

haha, that's funny!

For me personally, I couldn't care less if I'm the only one who likes it, your approval or disapproval means nothing to me. I have a house on the Arctic Circle in northern Sweden, it is extremely difficult to get an image that accurately portrays the conditions. The wind-blown ice formed on the trees, the low cloud, the man-made reflecting the natural form of the trees but most of all to me is the black and white conversion and the square crop, it works beautifully as a whole.

There are few images I see on here and wish I had taken but this is one i'd be proud of, doesn't mean anyone else has to like it, that's the whole point of this isn't it? Everyone likes different things.

I think its a good shot - I didn't say I don't like it.
But I also don't think it is THAT extraordinary.
It has a nice sense of depth and appealing features, but is just not top notch, IMO - nothing wrong with that.
And honestly, I don't think we are all THAT independent from leading figures like Michael.
Rationality is overrated, caveman instincts underrated in general.
I can of course NOT judge that in every single case - so - so if you think these effects do not apply to you or not in this case that's totally okay.
But I shared the astonishment of Ray, and what I wrote was my explanation for it.
Cheers
