Hi Silvio,
A lovely composition with this huge oak tree covered with snow. Beautiful diffused lighting rendering even exposure all over. Nice patch of blue sky. A very sharp image and an agreeable POV with a nice DOF.
Well done,
Enjoy your weekend.

Imposing tree,great graphism of branches, beautiful colors and lighting, well done

I like the shape of this snow-covered tree against a vast landscape, Silvio!
The light and exposure are delicately handled, and sharpness is well done.
Colors are natural and POV is excellent.
Nice work!

Have a nice weekend.

Hi, the branches are raised hands towards sky and prayers for more food of snow and rain, well captured and feel the coolness of the scene, TFS.

Awesome composition! It's beautiful but I can feel the chills. I like the soft lighting and it has good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.
