White is a litte off.
03/17/2009 08:53:06 PM
Very nice.
03/17/2009 04:38:51 PM
Looks like a warm winter day, interesting placement of the bench.
03/17/2009 12:11:16 PM
Nice winter scene. Good detail in the snow.
03/17/2009 10:35:34 AM
This to me has interesting composition but it's a little oof and a little dark.
03/17/2009 09:54:27 AM
Good exposure... there is still detail in the snow, it can be easy to overexpose snow and lose all detail.
03/16/2009 11:27:21 PM
Oh I saw way too much stuff of this over the winter! I'm getting a bit of a yellowish hue on my monitor, but not in the shadow areas, kind of strange.
03/16/2009 05:42:17 PM
great capture - keep up the good work
03/16/2009 02:58:53 PM
I don't really like the crop on this. It looks like you were intentionally trying to hide something at the top.
03/16/2009 11:03:22 AM
The snow doesn't look white in my monitor. White balance? Underexposed?
03/16/2009 03:36:29 AM
your snow is grey on my screen , tad bit under exposed
03/16/2009 03:11:50 AM
Well captured and presented.
03/15/2009 06:22:24 PM
Don't like the angle much. And what's the odd red from in the top left?
03/15/2009 03:49:57 PM
Image feels really dark.
03/15/2009 02:58:19 PM
Good pic. I'm gald there aren't any footprints.
03/15/2009 12:03:24 PM
Looks like a beautiful winter's day, nice.
03/15/2009 11:35:06 AM
A little small to comment on in detail. I like the composition
03/15/2009 11:16:29 AM
perfect title, and i like that the snows been undisturbed
03/15/2009 05:36:35 AM
hmm, it is nice but maybe bw would suit it better... and.. also. there are too many thing so the bench is fading away...
03/14/2009 08:54:22 PM
No, Pat, No, Don't sit on that! Looks like it would be cold, cold, cold. Love the lighting on this, and the tone of the wood.
03/14/2009 07:26:40 PM
Nice study in shape and form.
03/14/2009 06:44:54 PM
The shadows are an interesting element in this shot.
03/14/2009 01:31:17 PM
Nice shot, good composition.
03/14/2009 09:37:01 AM
I might suggest adding some more contrast or doing a levels adjustment here, to make the snow a little whiter. It looks a tad yellow/gray on my screen.
03/14/2009 12:40:45 AM
nice winter scene, I love scenes that have untouched snow.
03/13/2009 11:34:24 PM
Nice composition.
03/13/2009 08:19:57 PM
Unfortunalte , the current compostion / crop does not work for me. 5
03/13/2009 07:49:24 PM
I would like to see some more space above the bench. It is too close to the top of the frame for me.
03/13/2009 02:55:01 PM
The crop is a bit odd... but the scene is really pretty.

Not voting yet.
03/13/2009 02:42:21 PM
good capture, definitely "feels" cold
03/13/2009 12:01:25 PM
wow, this is beautiful
03/13/2009 09:41:29 AM
Beautiful untouched snow with nice light and colors. I like it!
03/13/2009 08:21:42 AM
Yellow snow. Too bad...
03/13/2009 08:07:09 AM
The white balance seems off a little. Nice winter scene though.
03/13/2009 07:06:05 AM
Nice crisp shot. Good job.
03/13/2009 04:59:48 AM
Looking at the picture, i have this urge to scroll up to see something more in the picture. I feel it is very tightly cropped on the top. Nice lighting though
03/12/2009 10:26:01 PM
you cropped this a bit to much...it seems that that trees in the background would have added to your bench shot...
03/12/2009 09:55:35 PM
nicely done the bench works well
03/12/2009 09:05:59 PM
Nice story and detail.
03/12/2009 07:34:45 PM
I think this could've been improved a bit if you'd shot it showing more of what's beyond the bench and less of the foreground. Looks like there'd be some lovely warm coloured foliage back there, which would bring a splash of colour to the photo.
03/12/2009 05:13:38 PM
I love snow!! I like this shot, but the snow seems kinda underexposed and grey to me. Maybe bring it up a little for a more white color.
03/12/2009 09:20:19 AM
Looks chilly!! Nice golden sunlight
03/12/2009 07:06:06 AM
Some things you just can not make up.
03/11/2009 08:06:19 PM
Untouched fresh snow, great for photography
03/11/2009 12:38:59 PM
i wish the view was more upwards.
03/11/2009 10:43:38 AM
Nice shot...would've cropped with a bit more room at the top
03/11/2009 09:42:38 AM
could change the perspective instead of just standing height
03/11/2009 05:31:42 AM
Was the use of HDR really required on this shot.. its OK and everything, but just feel it lacks any real `purpose`.. if that makes sense..
