    Compliment well deserved. You've knocked down a few quite good prints and this is right up with your pano shot; though much different this looks effortless -- until one tries to go and get a take like this. Congrats!

    Congrats on your double top 5 finish!

    Congratulations - Re the distortion - I meant the way the trees leaned inwards. Loved the shot it was my #2

Mar 10, 2014
    Two more placements in the top 5! Congratulations!!!

    Lovely B&W shot, with the dramatic sky contrasting the delicate branches.

    BW suits well to this view. Nicely com posed. good contrasts and sharpness. Nr 1 in my favorites.

Mar 10, 2014
    I really like the stark simplicity, and the unexpected impact of the sky in B&W

    Seems a lttle cramped by the format.

    Gotta love the NIK plugins! But, without this beautiful photo you took it wouldn't matter. Love the composition and processing.

    At last a photographer! Nice shot.

    Beautifully composed monogram study in pattern.

    Easy #1 by a mile in my book. Perfectly composed and rendered.

    not sure if I prefer to think that the stark trees in the foreground are isolated, or the structure in the background is what you refer to. I would have concentrated on the structure and composed the shot with the structure not split by the tree...perhaps seen between the two trees on the left, near a (sometimes magical) rule of 1/3rd spot. Great sky.

    your picture title is well depicted here

Mar 7, 2014
    Beautiful image - B&W was the right choice for sure. Not a fan of the distortion on the tree line but it's a minor gripe. Love the trace of clouds from the left side swooping in and bursting out. Well done!

    My guess is this is a johncomyn photo. Besides the fine composition, it has his signature Black/White-skinny-tree-landscape look! Whoever took the photo, it's high in my list of favorites.

Mar 7, 2014
    Very good! I like the tree line with the hut at the back compared to the trees in the dip in the land in the foreground. I like the sky too. Maybe it would be even better if the larger black specs in the foreground and the twig on the left hand tree had been cloned away. :)

    Lovingly captured and so well processed as to make this snowy scene actually seem attractive even nearing the end of a very harsh winter season that still has 3 feet of snow/ice on our grounds when usually there is nothing of the sort. Top five.
