A handsome panorama indeed. I personally liked the contrast and crispness. Nonetheless, I feel like the top and bottom parts are different in nature and might have given this impression of lacking contrast and cripness as the bottom part seems to give no additional flavor, and doesn't contribute much to the composition either. That's why I may suggest giving a try to crop slightly from the bottom.

As for the framing, frankly I hesitate. The main summit has rather a central position. I wonder whther it could be possible to place it further to the east? Just an idea.

Did you use a polariser? As such the sky looks nicely darkened.

Thanks for sharing.

With friendship,

Erdem

Punaise ! C'est vraiment "fort" comme photographie, on est complètement plongé dedans. En même temps c'est vraiment paisible, ça donne envie d'y être !

Celle là, elle me plaît :D

Parfois jadis tu avais tendance à ne pas assez contraster/détailler les noir et blancs (à mon goût bien sûr), mais là, ça me semble nickel.

Oui je me souviens bien d'une époque (qu'on a tous connu je crois) où faire du paysage en noir et blanc était un défi x) Ca commence à dater mine de rien, c'était l'époque de la vallée des orages ... Ça passe vite n'empêche !

Thanks :)

Nice compo - but maybe a tad to "underleveled" I would try to get more out of the blacks and white while maybe adding some lightness to the midtones. At the moment it looks a little unimpressive and lacks a little crispness. ;)

Hmm ... That's curious, I see it very contrasted ... Maybe it comes from my screen, I'll check it next week on a calibrated one.
But I don't think it lacks of crispness, I added sharpness on the foreground and the mountains, maybe you didn't click on the photo and you saw the compressed version of DA ?

Btw, thanks for your critique Alex, that's useful and also very appreciated.

Nope, I always have full view enabled. And yeah, maybe I wasn't to clear, with crispness I didn't mean sharpness, sorry - I rather meant that it doesn't jump in your face.

I just downloaded the jpeg and added a white frame after seeing the levels look absolutely ok and suddenly my impression changed drastically. I blame the pale green crap background that DA has for tricking me. Sorry for the bad feedback. :(
