Hi, Steve and Ioana
A very tender winter sun in this snow-covered forest glade.
It does seem to be an enjoyable place for walks even in winter.:)

Hi Steve / Ioana,
good 'thirds' composition.. and exposure for the snow (which I know can be tricky :-))

Best regards, Daniel

Czesc Steve and Ioana,

Beautiful winter scenery. Nice composition and lovely lighting. Well done & TFS :]

Sonow is no problem for you to get the prober lighting. The trees in the BG have a evening glow on these bark - very attractive.


Wow all of your first snow shots are stunning. I had a hard job deciding which to comment on first. The lines of the snow lined trees here are just beautiful. Well composed and with a perfect exposure.
