I like very much this clean presentation.
It's so good the composition made with the branches above the snow, and its shadows.
The frame used really improves the appreciation of the scene.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

You present us a very nice composition and interplay of shapes. The idea to compose your picture with vertical and horizontal liones is very smart and makes your picture outstanding.

A beautiful composition and you were very observant to spot it! I like the light and the shadows. Great focus and sharp details of the pretty Teasels.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Pleasant composition with this snowy field!
Attractive minimalism, good shadow play and nice details in the dried plants...

Oh no - snow :-) Fortunatelly snow in sunlight :-) I love very simply and arty composition, big, black frame, shadows. Great idea to show immaculated snow without any footprints :-)

very artistic shot of these Teasels.
Those blue shadows are beautiful.
You show immense skill in exposing due to the fact that 1. Snow is very hard to expose.
2. To expose snow correctly without under exposing darker objects is even harder.
Yet you have succeeded in doing so perfectly!
I salute you ;)
Pin-sharp, full of details and great clarity.
Very well done,

What a wonderful photo. So good to see that much snow and still so fresh. I whish......
The funny thing is that I know that it is cold, but both the dead teasel and the sun make the feel of this photo very warm. Love the cool shade and the minimalistic composition.

Marking for tomorrow...hey did you know that snow looks a bit blue for a reason? I have been studying this question for a few days now..
Water, snow, and clouds really have no particular color of their own. They appear blue colored because of the way they scatter the sunlight that contains all the colors of the rainbow. The oceans and the atmosphere scatter blue light the most because of the small size of their molecules.
"only painters and photographers generally ever notice or "see" it. The French Impressionists were sensitive to true colors like that..."
Wow..So now you know the rest of the story.

One doesn't think of shadows in the snow as being blue, but they really are!
Great composition of these teasels in the snow with excellent sharpness and exposure and superb ligting of the early spring: something to look forward to!
Well done and thanks for sharing this beauty.
Nice to see you back in action, even if it is partial at the moment.

What Joey wrote on exposing in snow was my first thought too about this shot, you did an outstanding job! This is one of the best I've seen in snow close ups. TFS

I just love this! The artistic simplicity is very appealing! It is so clever how you have retained the pattern of three - two teasel stems and a shadow!

I like the minimalist approach to this winter scene,and it ties in wonderfully with your teasel postings this past summer...sort of the denouement for them.lol.
Excellent focus and colour.
The composition is lovely.
