A very cold Winter day.
I guess it will get sunk because the beautiful low sunlight makes it look warmer, but it was indeed -17C (1.4F) without counting the windchill factor that brought it down to -25C (-13F).
Anyway, I like the photo but doubt strongly that it will attract much interest.

Greetings from the Critique Club.
Hello Louison, my name is Alan.

First as I clicked on your image I had to also turn up the heater, so yes you conveyed cold. Looking at your portfolio I see you have done well by DPC standards, and I look forward to spending more time in the near future.
This image, to me looks semi-focused. Yes I understand cold blowy snow, possibly fogged lens. But places it between 2 groups. The DPC perfect focus, contrasty, color rich group that does well in challenges. And the smaller (but growing) group that lean more towards artistic interpretation. If your aim was the first group then I can only suggest a bit more sharpening, but Im not sure it would help this image. Me personally would have flowed towards the second group, reduced focus, added noise, possibly crop a little on the bottom.
All the above is neither here nor there as you indicated you liked the photo, nothing is more important than that. Ill add that the more I look, the more I like- really like.

I like how you captured the blowing snow and the light that is falling on the drifts.

Well seen, very nice shot, would have been better for me if it weren't tilted though.

the snow is too yellow, it should have been corrected in the processing.
