The only rule that I break is the following ;
"ensure that your camera date and time are correctly set to your home time zone before shooting your entry. If the date(s) recorded in your original image file(s) are not within the specified challenge dates, your entry will be disqualified - NO exceptions! If your entry was taken in a different location than indicated in your profile, please note the location in the submission form so that we can adjust accordingly."

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting shot that I am unsure it meets the challenge.

Well, I must admit, I am completely confused by the validity of your entry, perhaps as well it didn't win! I think to be successful in a challenge of this nature those that have the most obvious omissions are the ones most likely to succeed, or at least get most attention. So, it was well guessed by one of your commenters but I really enjoyed Yo_Spiff's comment, I hope he wasn't right!

So, let's talk about the image itself. It's a shame it wasn't virgin snow but I do like the backlighting and shadows and your crossed poles in the foreground, I also like the near silhouettes of the trees. I think there is potential here to give the image more impact through increased contrast by giving the snow more exposure to get it whiter and reducing exposure on the tree trunks to make the silhouettes, I think it could make for a more interesting result.

Anyway, your secret's safe with me! Tee hee, Sid

Hmm. I would guess date shot outside the challenge dates?

Hmmm, I'm guessing the rule you broke was removing major elements. I think there was originally a dead body in the scene that you removed.
