    Shoot these pics on our ski-holiday last week in Schladming, Styria, Austria. The weather was quite ugly, almost no sunshine, mostly rain, lot of clouds, fogy. The mountain in most backgrounds is the "Dachstein" mountain.

    Enjoy!

    1 is killer! Blows the others away in my opinion. Great shot! 4 is also pretty nice.

    I love #1, misty and beautiful, with just a hint of color , almost like b/w.

    Exactly what I am thinking, too: Photo 1 is the one!
    Absolutely.

    And the close-up in 4 is also nice.

    You sure were not spoilt with colours during your holidays!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Oh yes, exactly! Thats maybe a point, where I was very undecided during the post-processing of these photos. Namely, they were all (especially the 1,5,9,10,11,12) almost pure B&W. I was thinking about following 3 options:

    1. Convert the photos to B&W
    2. Leave the photos as they are, color, but mostly 99% only grayscale
    3. Add enormous saturation and play with Shadow/Highlight Tool to the maximum

    I decided to do the 3. option. Stil not sure, if it was the best choice... Any thoughts on that?
