I think the sand (or snow?) on the bottom kind of takes away from the photo. To much of it.

Very sharp and the lighting gives this an "oil painting" look. Nice pic!

good: i love the light in the trees and the sharpness of them. the sky is nice. this wide crop works good here. i like the blue part of the border.

bad: i think the snow? is too blown. and the ultra-white border line conflicts with the white of the snow. overall the image seems a bit dark too.

Nicely composed and a pretty picture but does not convey the feeling of silence to me in a strong way. A bit more foreground might have helped to strengthen that feeling as well as some detail in the snow. 5

The snowy field in front didn't quite work for me. I think you would've gotten more harmony if you had cut that out. The frozen forest with the grass up front and the perfect color of the sky in a greater scale would've been perfect. 5

Beautiful trees, but I find the expanse of white at the bottom unbalances the effect, and your border is only increasing the distraction of that empty space.

The color contrast between the sky, trees and grass is really eye catching. But, the snow in the foreground kinda' steals the show. Still a lovely image. Well done.

The colors in the upper 4/5 of this shot are incredible, as is the detail. The band of snow along the bottom doesn't do it for me. It looks like a mistake.

These are beautiful trees and the color of the sky is very very interesting. However, the snow does not work for me.

Graphic extrapolation from an extensive basic edit - a strongish stylization... greeting card pretty.

I do not understand, in my modest opinion, the link with the silence, at least not so clear.
