What better than a winter scene to illustrate the cold.
I crop, add a vignette, and accentuate the contrast ... voila.

Hi Robert,
I like the treatment you adapted to this landscape shot. The white vignette around is enhancing this B&W presentation. Perfect details in the trees adorned with splendid lighting.
A pleasant shot to admire with impressive contrasts.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Well taken Robert,the foreground of snow covered fields,with the hint of tracks,as a leading line to the fence & on to the forest of firs, laden also with snow,makes for a first rate winter scene.
It would make a beautiful greetings card,Hallmark take note.


Hi Robert, I like the way the trees with less snow stand out in a row in the middle and the tracks leading across the paddock.Fiona

Salut Robert, vraiment beau ce paysage d'hiver , félicitation, un beau travail.

Cold, cold, cold. Beautiful photo of fields and trees covered with snow, well captured and presented

Hi Robert
perfect image of snowy scenery. the B&W version emphasizes the winter scene and cold weather. fine PP work for an artistic picture.

We can relate to those temperatures Silvio. We are having a mild spell at present but it will dip again before spring no doubt. Lovely B&W winter scene and good pp work.

ola Robert
your galery is coming very cool to look.
I like the way youwork your composition, spcecialy the vignette
um abraço

Bonsoir Robert
Comment ne pas aimer l'hiver en voyant un tel cliché!
J'ai une image en tête en noir et blanc comme celle ci qui me rapelle une épisode des "belles histoires des pays d'en haut"
Magnifique rendu monochrome

Beautiful photo! The vignette is really effective on this and we could get the idea that we're looking at an old photo from the early 1900s with this style.
Sharp and interesting scene! Great in B&W.
