Another beautiful work where B&W treatment to the picture worked so well, Julie!
Great mirror-reflections and perfect clarity.
The contrast between the pure white snow and the darkish color tones is well shown.
Well done!

Hi Julie,

B&W suits this nicely, a very peaceful scene. The snow cover is beautiful, and your chosen POV captures the winding river and reflections very well. A good choice of aperture to keep everything sharp.

Warm regards,

Absolutely beautiful work of this special place- stunning mood and tonalities-like a dream!

Best wishes,


Hi Julie.
Lovely scene captured with beautiful glossy reflection of the BG trees on the little water course which is beautifully framed with good details and the B&W tone makes it more interesting composition wise.
Best Regards

Another fantastic photo. Absolutely incredible composition, clarity... literally picture peferct. Great job!!

Beautiful shot Julie! Love the B&W tones, and the shimmer on the river. Fantastic winter shot. Looks like here... except I suspect our temperatures are a whole lot colder than there :)
Have a nice Sunday

Hi Julie,Guess I'm the odd man out,but
I must admit I prefer your color version to this one,there's a little more warmth to it.Personally I find with B&W images of this nature that they are more vibrant when the whole image is Tack sharp. In your colored version the tree trunks have much more defination & sharpness than in this image,wonderful winter scene,just wish it had more details & sharpness in the foreground trees.
Best Regards

Gorgeous work Julie! You guys got a nice couple of days of beautiful snow. Now I'm sure you are sick of it! haha! Excellent comp here!

Hi Julie..great range of tones...nice work on getting such a wide range...well composed,,,,nice all around.


Hello Julie, I have enjoyed your winter shots,and this study in b/w is an alternative way of looking at this part of your world.
Good composition with the river winding through the scene.The reflection offers a good variety of darker tones to the lighter tones of the snow and the trees.
Tfs, regards Jean.
