Little Annapurna, shot from Lower Enchantment Lakes, Washington State

125 film shot at 100. yellow #8 filter. i developed the negs, but had prints made as i wanted to scan them for the friends along on the hike. i can't wait to print this one on my own and get some detail in the foreground and increase contrast a bit.

The image is very nicely composed. I like it a lot! The print is very flat. Every tone seems to be a middle grey there are no whites or blacks. I would definitely work on the sky to the left and add a lot of drama to that area. The print just seems to need more contrast in general. Please post again after you have printed it to your satisfaction. I would love to see your final version!

I think this photo could be really nice but for my taste it is bit flat. Snow on on the slopes is dull gray instead of white. Maybe the slopes were in shadow and/or clouds? Still, nice and interesting shot.

Good luck in printing this, if you can make it a bit more dramatic this will be very nice indeed. Plus nothing like mountain images where you have to get their on your own two feet. PS: First textual comment I have left here, partly because of the image, partly because I am fond of b&w, but mostly because I have fond memories of hiking in the area over 20 years ago. Ugh, the time flies... :)

The guy who made this print should be kicked (grey snow....). Overall the picture is great but the print quality truly terrible.

 

If you boost contrast a bit and tinker with exposure while printing it'll look good. Add some dodging and burning and a wastebasket full of photographic paper and you've got a really great picture!!

thanks for the input and ratings. i agree with most of the comments. (except the color bit). i will print this with a great deal more contrast. all the negatives i handed this lab from the roll were printed very dark. tone was lost, but at least i get a relatively cheap preview of the shots. the negatives look great, so i should be able to produce a good print. i'll post it if/when i'm satisfied.

good day...

While you're doing all that contrast correcting that everone recommends, I think you might want to try not cropping the top so close. (another county heard from)
