======================================

Thanks all for the comments and YES - my first ribbon and first +7.

It was a magic day with a magic light. No wind, 10 degrees (C) below, the haze is just rising from the forets in the background.

I also took this for the "Where In The World Is ...?
[url=//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=615631]' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/776/120/615631.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/776/120/615631.jpg', '/') + 1) . '[/url]
and this for the "Complementary Colors"
[url=//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=615625]' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/778/120/615625.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/778/120/615625.jpg', '/') + 1) . '[/url]
on the same day

Once again - Thanks for all the nice comments!

Peter - Fabulous work here. Congrats on the Red. The blowing snow, the shadows on the snow drifts, and the pines in the back all work so magically together.

As I see from other photos of that same day, you had a pretty good light day. I think it is one we photographers all dream of. Now...If we can just figure out when these are going to happen in advance!

This is excellent. I may have desaturated the yellow tint to make it feel colder overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/07/2007 07:21:55 AM
the blue looks like its bleeding in the foreground, a more subtle use of colour would have helped i think.

Dreamy. Foreground a bit out of sync with background, though nicely suggestive.

I love the soft diffusion of light, but it seems like too much of this image is behind a haze. I like layers of haze because there's a great contrast between what is in focus and what is hazy, but here the haze effect is overwhelming. Overall, well composed--6
