Very nice! Great leading line, great composition in all, nice post processing etc. I would though, suggest an other kind of signature (speaking as graphic designer: lose the glow & black stroke).

Thank you very much Ruben, I'm working on some other kind of signature, but thank you very much for the tip! ;)

Behind The Lens

Location
Torres del Paine National Park, in the heart of the Chilean Patagonia!
Time
This was a very cold afternoon in late june, in their winter
Lighting
The light was perfect by itself, while coming from the Grey Glacier this wall of clkouds opened and showed me the majesty of these beautiful mountains... et voilà!
Equipment
Canon eos 6d and Tamron 15-30, Rollei tripod and nothing else
Inspiration
This was one of the shots I had in mind since I was at home and with this sky everything was like I dreamed (maybe the weather...)
Editing
Normal post production for better show the view as it was: dark and shadows and colors adjusting
In my camera bag
Into my Tilopa ythere is a Canon eos 6d with the Tamrons 15-30 / 24-70 and 70/200 (all f/2.8), and a Fujifilm X-T20 with Fujinon 16 and 35 (both f/1.4); Rollei tripods and Rollei holdersa and filters!
Feedback
I was close to be alone in the antarctic winter of the park, but pay attention because this is the only one road into the park and it is unpaved, the traffic can be high in other seasons so on't stay in the middle of the road (like me)... The weather is hard, remember a good dressing among the wind and the humidity at first!
