I got lost on a road trip, and came across this tree covered with frost on an Icy Cold morning. Oh, and by the way...no polarizing filter here. The sky actually looked that blue!!!

heh, I bet you get a lot of comments on the border...
I actually like it... good simulation of a beveled mat
(good picture too... though I would have liked to see brighter whites and more detail in the branches)

ok comp, brightness muddy, color flat, b&w need work, nice dof, good texture, overall could be better

The borders really detract from the impact of the snow in this image

I love everything about this shot. Great composition, brilliant colors, and well the trees are so soft and beautiful. Outstanding!!!! 10

Beautiful!! I love the IR look - is really eye catching against that deep blue sky. Nice shooting and post-processing.

What a super blue sky here in this image, which contrasts so well with the snowy trees and the ground.....

This would be much better if it were brightened up a bit. It has an overall greyness to it.

beauty!

I feel that such a big white border makes the snow look almost grey and makes the picture look darker than it is. Maybe a narrower border or a darker border would make it seem brighter. I think the image is beautiful when viewed alone.

cool.....

I like the blue of the sky, very rich colour, however the bottom part of the photo just doesnt match it in terms of contrast and colour, it just looks a little flat to me.

10 from me....good luck!

Beautiful sky! The frame on this is a little overpowering, though, and makes the snow look kind of gray. Maybe a dark gray border would bring out the white of the snow.

Beautiful

I wish the whites were whiter, would have made the incredible blue of the sky stand out more.

Love the border

I would have scored this higher if it wasn't for the thick white border. I feel it detracts so much and makes the snow look dingy.
