This image perfectly conveys the solitude of that place and time. Very subtle greys. It is both soft with crisp detail at the same time. Amazing. Technically superior image. One of my top three choices for the challenge. Great job!

I love this shot. I really wish you would have removed the small light up the road. Doesn't make sense to me to have that second light. 9.

Love the mood and the perspective. Could be a little more dark to add some contrast and reduce the glare of the light in the background.

this is cool looking

Works well in B&W. The softness is quite nice.

An atmospheric treat, perfectly framed.

Very nice soft shot. Can't think of anything I'd do to improve it.

I like the overall mood and soft gray tints, with details in the trees still clearly visible. Only thing is that a more natural environment might have been more attractive. here the straight road and the fence in front of the trees damage some of the atmosphere.

too washy for me, although I know it's by design.

very nice ... you can almost feel the moisture in the air!

Classic shot and very well done. 8 -danny

I am absolutely crazy about this shot! I love the softness of it. I feel like I want just a bit more contrast, a bit more tonal range, but then again, that might ruin the feel of it. Can't wait to see who this belongs to!

I like the composition and soft B&W toning, yet the scene lacks a clear point of interest. 7

Incredible shot, the feeling of a snow storm is very strong. (9)

Nice composition. I found the light a bit too distracting given the soft feel of the rest of the image.

Wonderful image. Perhaps just a little more contrast would have made it stronger, but still a VERY nice high key BW. Good work.

I like this a lot.

Great "feel" to this picture. Brings back some memories. Nice work.

Well titled shot with nice perspective. Very nice photo! (I wish the bright light beyond could have been a tad dimmer though)

Beautiful!! I like the ''powdery'' feeling of the picture. 8

This photo has a certain mood that is nice although I'd like to see more contrast.

Oh my gosh your photo made me gasp! It is just like the book "The Polar Express" by Chris Van Allsburg. What a startlingly glorious photograph!! Incredible.
01/01/2004 07:08:34 PM
Maybe a little to much soft focus. I really do like it though. Good luck!

Really nice capture. Wonderful lighting and leading lines. Haven't looked at all of the pictures yet but this is one of my favorites so far.
