    I would have liked a version like this that included the full Tumbling Glacier, but the sky didn't "cooperate" :) It was pretty hard choosing which of these to give prominence to...

    Both bear witness to the magnificent beauty of the area. However, of the two, I prefer, the top photo....I like the larger mass of golden warmth in the ground holding up the cool colors of the mts. and sky. I also prefer the more consistently blue sky in the first photo.

    Whoa this is magnificent. I really love how you expose the grand giant rock and having all the landscape details. Also the sky pattern really add a wonderful tone to photo

    Ha Robert! That's pretty funny given our discussion over at ABW. Would we even have B&W today if it wasn't for the initial technical limitations? Painters didn't paint in B&W before the invention of the camera in 1839... Anyway, thanks for poking my bias against B&W! ;o)

    Now I'm thinking that a debate between Ansell Adams and Marc Shandro ,with examples shown, would make great television, except one might not get much conversation from Ansell !!......LOL
