Hello Neighbor,
It's 1:00AM and I have to get up early for church tomorrow, but I thought I'd give one last critique before hitting the hay.
A beautiful Winter scene framed nicely with snow covered pines. Very nice detail and exposure with sharp focus throughout the entire frame.
Looks like a great place for sledding, although it might be a little bumpy. This is what it looks like here in Ohio right now, except I believe we have a little more snow. Have a great Sunday!!

Hi Bob,

Just the silence of the nature.... Cold in the face but friendship of the green covered with snow... It is all here.... :) Impressive winter scene MF!
TFS and best wishes for 2010!

Hi Bob,

I don't think I would have been able to drive to get this beautiful shot. I love the snow and pine trees. Wonderful how the two big trees frame the picture. How different it is here in Tucson. We are having a warm sunny day (in the 70's). The heat is turned off for the first time in a month. I think I'll just stay here and get my white stuff fix through you.


Perilous shooting conditions, it sounds like, friend Bob, but nothing ventured, eh? :)

I really like all that's going on here, front to back, the snow-limned evergreens (just about always going to love those!), and the nice lighting throughout.

You've got excellent depth of field, of course, and I'm not surprised, given the exposure settings. Interesting that you shot at ISO 800 at almost 10 in the morning -- was the light lower than it would seem here, was the setting quite overcast, or did you have a different reason?

In any case, your usual pleasing result. Glad to be back in the neighborhood and find you continuing to contribute. It's what I'd hoped.

Kind regards,

Hi Bob,

The view from the bottom to the top is giving depth and perspective to the scenery. It is well framed. The trees covered with snow are assets to the composition. The reflection of the light on the snow has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
