This photo submitted by Aiden Mahoney is good but suffers from too much post-processing. I think the subject and composition are interesting but the over-sharpening is overkill. It's most noticeable in the person and snow covered tree branches. Also bothering me is the noisy sky. Otherwise, the photo has a good composition, the placement of the hiker and horizon line are pleasing, and the snow covered backdrop and gray sky really make the main subject pop off the page.
