Matterhorn by TobiasRichter Matterhorn by TobiasRichter
This photo of the Matterhorn taken on a cold evening in October conveys a mystic atmosphere. After the first snowfall, the Stelli Lake is slightly snow-covered but still ice-free. The long exposure captures the moving clouds above the mountain tops of the Valais Alps.

My first thought when I saw this was "WOW!!"
What beautiful scenery, the snow covered landscape, the clouds reflected on the water, the rocks creating a foreground that makes the image even more interesting.
The rugged shape of the landscape as well as the cold color tones give this photo a feel of late winter or even early spring with the snow only covering parts of the landscape.
There are a few spots that are a bit over exposed but with this photo they help set the mood and scene in a very pleasant way. Nicely captured, thank you so much for sharing this with us. :D

Oh, my goodness. That's the first thing I thought when I saw it in my deviantWATCH files. Yes, there was lots of pictures along wtih this, but this picture, what makes it have such a great impact, is that it stood out from the rest, without begging for attention. The second thing I thought, was "This has GOT to be a manipulation. This can't be real."

And as I looked through your description, I was pleasantly surprised that this was a photograph, not a combined picture of many images. Which scores a 5 / 5 on both Originality and in Vision.

But, to get the 5 / 5 in Technique, I had to assess all of the variables in this photograph, and I'll talk about them here. You made each piece of glacier (?) have a reflection, and maybe I'm just a sucker to symmetry but the way it reflects from the water, enhances it SO much more than if sky was just there. The sky that overlaps with a dark blue and a perky sky blue blends in so well that it's hard to believe this is a photograph.

I will be privately +Watching you, this has left such a great impression on you. :) And I suggest the rest do as well.

This is absolutely mesmerizing!! The water almost looks like quicksilver, and I must admit, Matterhorn does remind me of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain, from 'The Hobbit'. :)

Ganz großartige Aufnahme, die Langzeitbelichtung macht sich super! Hast du einen Graufilter verwendet?
Reply
:icontobiasrichter:
TobiasRichter Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Professional Photographer
Danke! Ja ich verwende Grau und Grauverlauffilter. Das Bild zB ist mit einem Lee Big Stopper mit 10 Blenden gemacht.

Echt großartig!
Ich habe bisher nicht mit Filtern gearbeitet, aber da ich immer mehr Freude an Landschaftsfotografie finde, überlege ich nun, mir welche anzuschaffen (erstmal Grauverlaufsfilter, ist glaub ich der wichtigste, mit Langzeitbelichtungen habe ich noch nicht experimentiert). Ist das LEE System zu empfehlen? Ist ja ganz schön hochpreisig, aber ich habe schon oft gehört, dass man am Filter nicht sparen sollte...

Ja das System ist gut und das Beste was ich bis jetzt hatte. Grauverlauf ist sicher das Wichtigste und kommt bei mir fast immer zum Einsatz.
