    Just returned from two weeks in Switzerland and Italy with the new misses on our honeymoon... Trip was AMAZING, we had the best time...

    Anyway, just starting to pick out a few for post processing and thought i would post as i go.... I may have some better ones (alot to go through still), but this one caught my eye...

    It was taken from the Riffelalp station on the Gornergrat, above Zermatt Switzerland.

    Nikon D80
    Tamron 17-50mm 2.8
    77mm B+W Kaesemaan CP


    Suggest crops/comments welcomed. Thanks for looking!

    The colors and clouds are awesome. The snow looks a little overexposed but it looks like a tough lighting situation. That sky is phenomenal. Any way to move the mountain out of the center of the frame? Would love to see more!

    That is a beautiful shot
    The white does not go over 240 as far as PS goes. So not blown at all.
    255 is blown.
    I usually keep my whites about 238. So 240 is not big deal to me anyway. jmho

    Great shot. The purity and intensiveness of the colors are awesome.

    So that's what the Matterhorn looks like without clouds obscuring it.

    Great shot! Great sky! Great color!
