Great capture! Did you use a Vixen Polarie? And may I ask why you set ISO to 50?

Nice picture, nice composition. But it's a pity that this picture isn't real. It's impossible to see the matterhorn from the Lauterbrunnen valley.

This must've been breathtaking to see in person. Great photo!

Gorgeous. This is one of my favorite pictures here in a long time.

Digitally stitched? Because I'm pretty sure Matterhorn isn't at the end of the Lauterbrunnen valley. Otherwise quite stunning - only my knowledge of Swiss geography is preventing me from downloading it.

I've downloaded several of your pictures, but this is THE BEST. How you continue to top each successive photo says a ton about your skill as a photographer.

A long time fan!

Thanks Doug, and for all the other nice comments! Indeed this photo is a composition made in Photoshop. In fact, the Matterhorn is situated next to Zermatt whereas the foreground (at least the majority) is from one of my photos in Lauterbrunnen / Wengen. I hope, all Swiss people can forgive me to frankenstein this national treasure! ;-)

Great capture, but kallinan is right. The Breithorn should be there, not the Matterhorn. :)

It is of course not forbidden to fake a picture, but it must be communicated clearly. I was just until yesterday at Lauterbrunnen (as I am more times per year) and Mürren (which is situated above Lauterbrunnen/Stechelberg), and I an say that this picture is a fake. Despite the fact, you can see it is photoshoped. I think it is nice making such pictures but I doubt if this is the right place for posting it. Way too much stars and he picture looks kitschy.

@ Benutzername, why would you say its the wrong place to post it? Its a place where you can upload and download wallpapers for your desktop. It say`s nothing about how realistic it has to be. It should brighten up your desktop and you should enjoy looking at it. If not, just don`t download it :)

@Robin : It's written in the submission instructions, "Post-processing should be minimal and conducted with great care."

@Robin, I agree with benutzername, it must be communicated clearly. Moreover, it's written in the submission instruction "post processing should be minimal and conducted with great care". So placing the matterhorn behind the lauterbrunnen valley is quite... daring. Nice composition anyway.

Lauterbrunnen is always lovely, but.... I really feel that there is enough real geography in the Swiss Alps to last a lifetime without having to, as the photographer himself said, "Frankenstein" anything together. Not good.
