This is a really great shot. I can't believe this is the first time I'm seeing it... Really insperational. Makes me wish for snow... Chalking this one up as a favorite.

WoW! This is beautiful!
I really love the color.... it seems to show just how cold it really is.
The focus is wonderful! It is just a well taken shot.

The only thing that bothers me, is the lights. They are very bright... and they catch my eye right away. Since I am not all that good with PS, I don't even know how to fix that...sorry.

The falling snow, while it adds a nice touch... it is also a bit distracting. But, it's not that bad.

Great shot!

Yanik, congratulations on another ribbon. It looks so much like around here, and like an enchanted forest, just beautiful. Love the color you picked for it. The picture just sparkles.

Congratulations on the ribbon, Yanik! Superb job. It is an honor getting a ribbon the same time as you.

This is very nice. 9

Stunning. Wonderfully exposed and gorgeous color.
01/17/2004 09:50:43 AM
Very intriguing lighting here. Your exposure and colors seem appropriate for winter.
01/17/2004 08:50:42 AM
very nice. The toning on this conveys the weather conditions nicely. It looks like a cold picture. I think this is really well done and my feeling is that it'll probably be in the top 20, it should be in the top ten. I really think this is well done 9

This reminds me of when I lived in places where there was snow... the silence that comes with it and I can almost taste snowflakes on my tongue.
01/16/2004 11:25:47 PM
This is so lovely and serene. It's like "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening".
01/16/2004 10:55:53 PM
Nice composition but I am a bit drawn off by the white spots of varying size and placement. A cleaner image would have scored higher. Nicely done.
01/16/2004 10:44:26 PM
Cool. Needs a little level in the front.
01/15/2004 08:57:13 PM
I like this very much I envy you your snow even though this is cold it is very inviting good focus makes me want to walk right in
01/15/2004 05:20:35 PM
Pretty Pretty Pretty! Beautiful lighting and great composition and to be able to capture it with the snow falling is very nice. Wonderful "After Dark" photo!
01/15/2004 06:20:59 AM
This almost has a majical quality to it.
01/15/2004 01:29:49 AM
With low lite shots like this its sometimes difficult to tell if a shot has been duotone treated or is natural. This is one of them. Either way, love the tonality!
01/13/2004 05:28:36 PM
Stellar shot. The first I viewed and a real pleaser. 9
01/13/2004 03:24:54 PM
Wonderful winter scene. Lighting is nice.
01/12/2004 09:48:54 PM
Very pretty. Enchanted forest... The snow specks are a bit distracting from the smoothness of the winter scape, but you couldn't do much about that. Nice duotone colour.

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure lighting composition focus all very good.

Personal: Very nice shot!

My vote: 7
01/12/2004 08:26:49 PM
nice monochrome! I can feel the cold...
01/12/2004 06:57:14 PM
beautiful shot, could have cropped a little off the top to make it looked a little more balanced... still a 10 in my book though

Absolutely gorgeous. Cold and snug at the same time!
01/12/2004 01:41:55 PM
Christmas card. Lovely shot. 9 from me.
01/12/2004 01:11:13 PM
Very night snow scene. Great lighting and composition.
01/12/2004 08:20:56 AM
This is very good.
01/12/2004 07:38:59 AM
This image screams out silence to me, and if a photo can make me feel with it then it is good. And this is very good. The effect of the light snowfall just tops it all off and completes the harmony.

Very nice. I would love to have seen more detail pulled out of the shadows. And maybe cut the first light out on the left.

Very nicely done! I like the "winter wonderland" feel of it.
