Finally warmed up enough for some tolerable night shooting on Saturday. Kind of hard to motivate myself when you know outdoor photography will be painful (freezing toes and fingers).

I don't see how this could be any better. Great lighting and textures. 9

I've been avoiding commenting on this one. There are a number of everso effective elements to it - the general strength of composition, the vignetting (whether edited or natural it is very useful). But there are elements of the composition that don't really sit very comfortably for me - chiefly your positioning of the bench/tree relative to one another, relative to frame: it leaves me wanting some element toward image left to provide a touch to re-balance things, or perhaps just to balance the composition more to the left, which I realise would mean croping out the end of that branch, but I think that wouldn't hurt in the same way as that slight upsetting of the balance of things does; these are very minor seeming details, but i think they have an exaggerated impact on the final composition. That hut and background behind the tree I think i would have tried to work/process out of the image too - or, if they're wanted, to give them more prominence. For dpc certainly, using levels or whatever to black them out would be preferred.

Beautiful. I like the patterns that the snow is making from the wind. 8

Cool textures in the snow. That is snow isn't it?

I love the effect of the light on the snow. Like height contours on a topographical map. The bench is also terrific. Nice composition. 7

I'm glad I opened up the thumbnail and took a closer look at this one (I'm not voting so I'm not looking at all the shots, just the thumbnails that intrigue me). The texture of the snow is so interesting and makes a nice contrast to the dots of the lights on the tree. Good choice of making it black and white too. I don't think it'd have near as much impact in color. I can easily see this hanging in a gallery. I hope too see this with a ribbon next week. Good luck!

Great shot. The feeling of loneliness and the title are perfect. Great texture in the snow and by setting your focal point back in the distance you enhance the feeling of loneliness. Excellent work! 10

Very nice! I love the black and white treatment and the lines in the snow. Everything works together to make this a wonderful photo.
