Judges Comment

For many, the shapes of these little mountains will be quite unfamiliar and astonishing and that creates appeal. The choice of the panoramic format was a good one to present those shapes and the city nestled at the base. The backlighting and capture with the mist (or smog?) helps amplify the aerial perspective which helps convey the sense of space. Nicely done!
