Hi Joanna, I thought Spring had sprung in Poland. Beautiful rosehip in the snow, very artistically presented. It's beautiful. Not long now and you'll be photographing the new plants for us. Hurra!

Very nice frozen effect. Composition and background are very well done. The note is interesting. Are vitamin C and love related? ;-)

Bonne image, Joanna. Le sujet une peu trop centré à mon goût mais j'aime bien cette drôle de bête à cornes à l'avant.

Red and frozen :-) I like ice crystals, little red spots on BG, shape of those roses. Very good but also very cold picture :-)

This is very (n)ice done, Joanna !
Simple but with a good effect !

Very nice! the frozen snow on the rose hip look like pastry sugar. Perfect DOF and management of light on the whites.

Bardzo ladnie wyszly te roze. Wygladaja niespotykanie z tymi krysztalkami zamarznietej rosy.

What an excellent capture. The frost on the bud is wonderful. Good depth of field.

Not a bad composition, not bad technicality and obviously not a bad result !
