    Thank you for your nice comments. I had been shooting towards the trees hoping for some nice elongated shadows. I had almost given up due to the bitter cold and the disappearing daylight when this man and his dog started to walk across my line of vision. I only had time for one shot, and as luck would have it, it worked.

    Perfectly executed - I bet it would have been even more dramatic 30-45 minutes earlier. High in my favs.

    Good backlighting, composition - a pleasant scene. Looks cold, though.

    Really like this shot - the way the trees frame the subject and the warmer light is great.

    This really stands out of the group. Great composition and use of backlighting. We got a winner.

    This is what is so attractive about backlighting. It emphasises the cold beautifully. The dog and owner are in absolutely perfect poses - and are exactly where they should be in the frame. This should be framed and hung on a wall for summer viewing :-)
