As my comments reflect, I'm a huge fan of your work. This is just splendid. The white on white on white is stunning with your use of contrast and light. Perfect capture in my book.

Great capture. This is beautiful!
(FYI...I am seeing three water spots (?) that were on your lens. I only mention it in case you are going to make a print available.)

Unbelievably great picture. I gave you a 10 because the photo is stunning, but also because I hope that you are breaking new ground with freezing cold landscape shots!

very nice winter photo, but what new ground are you breaking?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2005 06:54:17 PM
gorgeous, winter wonderland. i so miss scenes like this! love the clouds contrasting with the sunlight against the white trees, beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colors and shades of white and gray in this picture, combined with the sharpness of the foreground and fog so soft I can feel it make this the best I've seen in this challenge so far. The only thing I don't like is the frame, but I'm not taking points away for that. 10
Also, I think your title is perfect.

beautiful capture here. Very nice.

wow. (not much more to say)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very beautiful shot. That being said, it's not entirely unique and therefore not high on my list of good shots for this challenge.

Beautiful picture.

This is beautiful. Good luck! 10

This is a great picture and I hate that I will not score it very high. I don't see anything that constitutes breaking ground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 03:28:14 PM
amazing! great eye for composition, use of color and light. one of my ribbon picks this challenge and going in my favorites
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 03:07:28 PM
And you sure did! Only complaint is the high contrast frame, it takes your attention from the image. I would much prefer a one color (or two colors of more similar brightness) frame. Otherwise a fabulous photo, makes me wish I were skiing - 9

you did just as your title suggests, captured the light. nice work. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 01:22:54 PM
This is a fine image in many ways. You handled the lighting well, and the composition is excellent with the leading lines all converging on the darker tree where the subtle curve bounces the viewer back into the picture again. If this is a new venture for you, keep it up! 10

Wonderful winter capture...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 04:20:52 AM
Wow, a wonderful image, but not really a whole lot to do with breaking new grounds on innovative technique.

In my faves though

Just Beautiful. I can't wait to read about the technique involved in taking this photo.

This is lovely, a picture postcard.well done...9

I don't know much about infrared photography, but this looks like an example of it. I guess deciduous trees show up white, while coniferous trees show up black? Very striking almost monochromatic palette. The minimalist composition is compelling while the veil of fog with the texture of the foliage keeps it from being stark. Bumping from 8 to 9.

Great job, 8 from me.

Wow!! what a stunning image -- I hope people don't get all fussy about "how does this break new ground". I like the use of white space.
