[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture is from earlier this year. I had to count geese for to monitor the effect of conservation areas for geese in agricultural land in the wintertime. Somewhere along the route I passed this track. Because of the cold most of the geese had left for more southern destinations.

i like this, it looks very bleak and cold and im not surprised the geese have left for warmer climates.
i think if it was my image i would have tried tu pull the whites out a bit more, the horizon is slightly off and looks like it needs rotating a bit to the right.
all that said, i like the way you have composed the shot with the road leading you into the distance and the way the trees define which way the road is heading.

Hi Jacob

What a beautiful sight! This really appears to be taekn out of a fairy-tale :)
The snow here is wonderful and the contrast with the fence and the bark of those trees is awsome!
Also the perspective is great and the POV excellent.
A very beautiful composition!
I only hope i find somethinf similar (at least the snow part...lol) when i go to the mountains for New Year's Eve. :)

Bravo and TFS

Hoi Jacob,
Wat een prachtige winter foto. Iets waar ik met smart op zit te wachten. Erg mooi hoe er toch wat kleur in deze foto zit. De diepte en het lijnen spel is perfect. Echt het gevoel dat ik het pad af wil lopen. Alleen is alles een beetje central geplaatst. En was een POV iets meer naar rechts en lager beter. Maar dat doet niet weg dat het een super mooie sfeer heeft.
Groeten,
Niek

Hi,
Ik zie dat jij ook even in het winterarchief hebt gekeken. Prachtige compositie, de paaltjes brengen wat kleur in het geheel.

Excellent composition. Natural colour with good detail. I like it.

I like this photo Jacob however it is very heavy on mid tones. I assume it was a gray day but I think if you had compensated up 1 stop or so, the snow would look a little lighter. It is funny that often, when I do a workshop, I discover that Niek has already done one! The translator is not so good with Dutch so I don't quite know what he said nor what you responded. I really like the soft/fogginess of your shot and my workshop hasn't quite as much contrast as his. It, of course, is all a matter of personal preference.
