Stunning shot. As an inexperienced mountaineer I have been fortunate enough to have seen a few shots like this of Chamois but never been quick enough to operate with the camera. The Ibex seems to be saying "Follow me if you dare"

I love the this capture, right place and right time. If this was a "happy accident" its a great example of the rule of thirds. You might try doing a little more post processing it would help give this image a little more impact. Good Job here!

Outstanding photograph, I have to disagree with a previous comment about adding more post processing to add impact! It's an ibex on the edge of a mountain ledge it's got all the visual impact it needs and then some exactly as it is!
Superb work and well deserved runner up and finalist positions...
