simply fantastic sense of scale 'n classic b&w conversion, jonathan. side profile of the ibex silhouette gives powerful impact against sheer vertical height. welcome to CNP. congratulations for the award.

Welcome to CNP Jonathan.
Love the placement of the ibex and the sense of scale that the image gives.
The patch of light at the right corner give a nice balance to the ibex.

Brilliant image to begin with. Loved the composition and the B&W conversion. The placement of the Ibex is apt and the details in the shadows and the bright patch on the right is adding very well.

I have been seeing some of your stunning images on another forum and it feels good to see you here.

Warm Welcome to CNP. Cheers.

Love the scale and the sheer steepness of the mountain.. The small lit part on top rt takes little charm away from the image..

Welcome to CNP Jonathan ! We hope you will enjoy participating here.

Beautiful portrayal of scale here. I love the play of lines and light in this image. Though small in the frame the Ibex gets all the visual focus here. The spot of light in shadows add to the frame. Thanks for sharing.
