Hello Jeanpaul
Very nice landscape,
Perfect composition and lighting,
Great POV,Welldone.


Hello Jeanpaul,
Very nice perspective and pov. The sun light in foreground is great. Water movements give life to this picture. Very well done and tfs.

So here we are with your landscape picture after a long time, JP.
Is it morning or evening time?
Whatever the time, it is a fine view of the iced up river gradually breaking up.
The point of view flush from the middle of the stream offers an impressive vista of the river. The play of light and shade on water and ice is so very subtle and beautiful.

Hi Jeanpaul

What a wonderful winter scene. Great POV, excellent composition and just a lovely subject



Great atmosphere. Good copmisition. Well done. TFS. Stev

Salut JP,
The flow of the water between the snow and ice is just wonderful and takes me all the way up the stream toward the mill. Really wonderful work on the exposure and depth. The details in the photo are wonderful. My only concern is the tilt to the right.

Hello JP,
An attractive winter scenery!
The river half covered with ice, and the beautiful light make this a pleasant image...
Well composed with the river framed by forest, snow is well exposed under varying light conditions!

Hi Jean-Paul.
Beautiful winter landscape.Wild course of the river and broken icy floe arrange promise coming spring.I like this very nice composition with very good point of view.Very good saturated white color and very nice lighting.Great depth with very good details,ice looks thick a lot.
Well done.TFS and best greetings.

Hi Jeanpaul, lovely winter landscape with good light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

This is beautiful JeanPaul. The exposure and color of the snow look perfect. I really like the scene you chose... looking down the stream to the light in the distance. I feel the image may need a slight rotation to the left. I cannot tell you on what I base this conclusion, but I tried it and it felt a little more stable to me????

Evelynn : )

Incrediable frozen beauty. Winter is nice to see from somewhere warmer!

bonjour jeanpaul,
très très beau paysage hivernal qui a un aspect printanier aussi

Hi JeanPaul,
A beautiful landscape scene. Well composed and framed. You handled the sunlight into the shade well. Nice colors and tones across the entire exposure range. Looks good.

Great winter scene, JeanPaul, but it does have a distinct tilt to the right! I love the colours and details and the double diagonal (ice from the right, water from the left) really makes this superb (but for the tilt (^0^))

Hi Jean Paul.
Your choice of POV is really great. From that point amazing view is open to eyes. I like the expressive sunlight into the water at FG and impressive shadows of the remote tress at BG. Sharpness and details of the image are perfect too. My compliments and TFS.

Bonjour Jeanpaul,
Une image qui m'avait échappée.. Belle lumière hivernale que j'aime tant. Très jolis aussi ces tapis neigeux sur le ruisseau. Et ce calme...Merci pour cette image qui parle à l'âme

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
