Just a stupendous shot. I'm glad that your efforts + your application savvy rewarded you such a photo. I'm beginning to see value of shooting with a low ISO level.

Amazing!! Of all the finalist this is my favorite! This photo emotes depth and feeling, to the point where you feel like you are actually there. Such a dreamy experience.

And that't one of the best compliment, I ever received for this photo.
shutterchemistry July 30, 2016
To me a photo is successful, if I can make the viewer transported into the scene. Inspiring them to travel and experience the scene.

Yep, for sure: the pain is temporary haha. I carried my DSLR hiking knowing life could be a bit easier without it, but the photos last forever, as long as I don't lose the files :P.

*** The Awakening ****

Story:
You snooze, You lose. That's the true story for every landscape photographer!

Likewise, I too pushed myself out of the cozy hotel bed at 5am to get ready to tackle an uphill ride to soak in the beauty of Saint Thomas Church.

It was a really cold morning with below freezing temperature. So I had to drive very carefully maneuvering through the icy hair pin bends to reach the hill top.

I had done extensive research before my trip to Slovenia. Let me tell you that, its one of the safest countries in Europe with lowest crime rates.

In spite of all that I must admit, it was not a pleasant experience to drive middle of nowhere in a foreign country to reach the location before sunrise. Luckily my wife was my partner in crime and decided to sacrifice her sleep without knowing, what's coming her way. :)

As the sun came out, we witnessed nature use its pallet of a million colors to paint the scene. It was arguably one of the best sunrises I have ever experienced in my life.

Lesson Learnt:
Pain is temporary, the photo and the experience stays for a lifetime.

Regrets:

Some days the valley gets filled up with fog. I was not lucky enough to experience that.

I wish I had a dedicated telephoto lens.

The longest lens I had was a dedicated Canon Macro lens (100mm F 2.8). I have tried to make the best use of the available resource. Hope you guys enjoy it.
