LOL! Indeed. Not many shutter speeds top that.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Interesting to see this was the lowest scoring image in the challenge, it was a long way from the lowest scoring image in the challenge for me!

I like the composition, the footsteps leading us through the milk snow. Wonderful shadows coming from the lovely light.

Out of focus? hm, no I think not. Incredibly shallow depth of field coming from using a 1.2 aperture - undoubtedly. The bits that need to be are perfectly focused.

I can see the connection to the challenge clearly, but that may have something to do with my locale as well. Tiberius says it well in his comment below.

I'm sure the low score is due to the DNMC votes you have undoubtedly received.

It takes one to sit on the Trans-Siberian for 6 days and nights in winter and look outside and feel like you are sunk in milk to relate to this image.

I can relate...

thank you. I don't even think those are human tracks. I think they're deer tracks, but they seemed like better footprints than actual footprints.

Never understood why this doesn't relate to folks.

For me, the path has always had strong meaning - a metaphor for the course of one's life, the result(s) of a choice, walking alone, walking with others, overcoming difficulty or discomfort (like walking barefoot through the snow), etc.

I especially like the "contrarian" shadows of branches crossing the path.
