What an impressive view!!!
Good low POV and angle
Also like your framing

Remote, pristine, gorgous, the resized version does not do justice, to the sparkling snow crystles. I would think. The blues are natural, I have some Like this from Alaska. TFS


Hello David,
Very good textures in the snow, impressive!
Otherwise I find your image to be well composed with good balance between the elements...
The angle of lighting adds a lot of life to the scenery!

Hello David,
a fairy tale landscape as taken from another world.
Technically perfect, very well balanced composition, beautiful shining backlight, great depth.
Last winter, we had a lot of snow, too much indeed.
I would not have expected to be able to enjoy the view of a snow covered landscape that soon again - must be due to the perfection of your shot.
Thank you! Regards,

Hi David,
I have to tell you that I no longer can see the snow - after nearly half an year with snow!
But this shot is phantastic together with the blue sky and the sun. I love the glittering snow and the snow-aliens everywhere, wonderful, thanks

Hi David

The visual impact of this shot as a thumbnail was very eye catching, but as an enlarged image.... Wow!!!. This is an amazing shot. The snow glistening under the sun gives an awesome effect. You have managed the white very well. A very tranquil scene. I have uploaded a workshop

Salut David

Wow, that is great ! Winter landscapes are always wonderful, and this one makes no exception. Perfect colors, textures and composition, the blue looks so natural. Nice DOF and POV, too. I'm tired of winter - rather glad that spring has arrived at last - but this shot is really fantastic. Well done !

Fantastic - I love it, the composistion, the angle, the sparkle. Wonderful.

Keep them coming please.


hello David,
I like this snowy landscape, has interesting forms and the composition & colours are great, well balanced.

Hi David,
As peter mentioned "a fairy tale landscape as taken from another world". The DOF is superb and a high quality shot!!

Hello David,
Another lovely shot from you. I think the first one had a little more stronger composition. In this one my eye tries, kind of, skip the pile of snow in FG and go straight to the BG. Therefore I have feeling the FG is a little distracting.
But the picture has again great cold colourse and very good lighting.

Hi David, I must say Im pretty pleased its getting spring now (its already, its holland) but this picture gives the magic of how suburb winter can be. What a wonderfull place. Youve done a nice job with this lens, the snow still shows some sparkling snow. And compliments on the presentation of the picture.

Hi David.
Wonderful winter postal, I like blue tones, magic and fantastic composition, very nice colors and sharpness.....GREAT CAPTURE.

Thanks and I wait more photos , comments , tips and critiques.


Hi David,
Wonderful landscape photo. Very accurate exposure, excellent details and good composition. Really, lovely scene. I am not sure it is wise to use that small aperture (f/22). It may cause diffraction problems. Try not to close the aperture more then f/16.
