    i bought these 'titan' ski's used just recently for $15. i think they are from 1973 :lol:, great for off trail skiing.

    I like #3 only # 1 seems underexposed # 2 the lens flare takes away from the image.

    Kinda agree with Provo.

    They all could use HDR to get the snow really white and get some details in the background. HDR is of course harder when people are involved unless they are good at holding the pose...

    On the other hand, I love your shots. They remind me of when I went skiing in Norway. Huge white snow areas, frozen lakes, peace and quiet. At most, we'd meet one or two other parties in a day of skiing and it was great. Thanks for the reminder.

    thanks for the comments. i haven't done hdr yet. i'll have to look into it since i shoot almost 6 months out of the year in snow.

    it's kinda like that here, not that remote as in norway, i am only 30 min. from a north american capital. but still very peace full and sometimes we don't see anyone either.
    you were lucky to be in norway, a little different climate that in georgia i imagine.

    Long, long time ago but, yes, I was lucky. And if you can find this kind of deal only 30 min. from the capital, why *****?

    Fook GA :lmao: Can't wait to be out of here. I love seasons and we only have two here... utterly boring.

    I did downhill skiing, including getting dropped off on top of a mountain, but there is nothing nicer than X-country skiing as long as you don't do it in a resort where you ski in tracks :x
