First entry with my new EM5 Mk3 and my first pro grade lens.

I might have adjusted the white balance in post if this weren't minimal editing, but then again, this slight cool tone probably gives it the impression of being cold, which it was. Living in Texas, I don't get as much opportunity for snow photos as some folks.

This was my pick for the blue, and congratulations! I think the colder light temperature- almost a tungsten type look, really works to add atmosphere. I am glad you didnít crop out the sky. I think it adds scale and reinforces the chilly feel

This was my highest vote (tied with Mark's #10).

It's so cold, I can almost feel it.

Congratulations, Spiffy!

congratulations on the blue .. totally fitting considering your colour scheme in this photo . !! ..
i sorta agree with Mary Ann about the crop .. altho i didnt even realize we could crop in this minimal edit challenge until i read the extra rules .. which was lucky for me .. who wants a stray piece of barbed wire ruining the look of an otherwise pristine photo .. lol .. joke .. it wasnt pristine .. ;)
anyway .. this is a great pic .. and congrats again .. :)

Beautiful scene and one of my highest scores. I would have been tempted to crop out the sky, it is a bit distracting.
