1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Composition, I mainly try to level the picture and put the character on the right as it looking toward the left.
Lighting, I wanted to emphases on how one side of the frame receive a lot of light while the other side is very dark.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I wanted to bring a good landscape, with a focus on the lighting which was really impressing on the crest of the mountain.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Well when we reach that place it was after a quite relax trail,but on the way the landscape was not so picturesque (almost dull). Also during the day it was between short slight rains a mostly windy and cloudy day.
And when we reach the summit this view was striking. I wanted to convey that emotion.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I think the picture is ok, I would like to know how to make the picture great.
I shooted handheld with the nex-5 and the pancake 16m at f11 and 1/50s exposure.
in term of post processing I sharped a little bit and crop the top and bottom of the picture in order to give a little more depth in the picture.
(it's my first post, hope everything is alright)
