Hi Andrija

The black, white & skyblue colours, go well together. Maybe I would have tried to burn in the strong highlights, &/or reduce light contrasts in photo-shop? Good sharpness & framing on the sculptured windblown snow atop the lamp post.

Beautiful artistic framing and capture of this lovely crisp winter scene. The sharpness is sublime and the frozen droplets are like decorations on the lamps! Lovely contrasting blue sky and the slight oe of the snow in the bg is minor. Although the notes section is lacking in description, great shot and well seen!



You always come up with interesting location and some fine ideas, and this post from you is no exception, Andrija!

Great focus on this frozen lamppost, and I can really feel the cold weather during the time you took this shot. The (sun)light is well managed, avoiding any possible OE. Great sharpness and perfect lower POV for this work.

Well done!

Best regards,

Ciao Andrija

It is certainly a super picture freeze,
Tell me, the lights can illuminate with so much ice
so the post!
The colors of blue in Bg are fabulous and very tasteful
at the close.

Bravo et amitié


Eye catching shot with sharp detail and good colour showing a very cold scene. I like the composition, it is quite abstract.

Hi Andrija,
Quite an abundance of snow in this Winter shot depicting this lamp post covered with snow. It's indicating a frozen temperature.
Nice contrast between white and blue and the green lamp post.
A very sharp and neat presentation.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

I like this, Andrija.
You have chosen a great pov to make the lamps interesting in their composition and their appearance. The crop is well conceived.
the exposure is beautifully sharp.

I wonder if it would have been better to clone out the snow covered tree, in the b/g. The result would have been a simpler but stronger composition, and the slightly oe snow would not be a distraction.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Andrija!
Simple, original winter shot. Excellent POV and sharpness...impressive details of the icicles, hanging from the lamp. Great contrast against the blue sky.
Perhaps there is some OE on the snow covering the tree...in my opinion, however a lovely composition.
Ciao! vanda

clear light and simple colors are splendid here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Bom dia Andrija,

Amazing scene,
R. ;O)

A well balanced composition, viewer can feel the atmosphere.
Thank you.

I like it! It looks like the lamp is wearing a hat! Great pov and it has a good dof with sharp details even the snow. Nice colors. Well done, tfs.

Hey Andrija , not surprised to see snow , more snow , Montenegro gets a lot of it in a winter , perhaps more than we do here , there is a bank sitting on top of the streetlamps , how amusing the serpentine form it has taken here linking the two lamps together with the bluest of sky as a backdrop ! Suffice to look up sometimes to find something interesting to picture , ha ha ! Nice shot my friend ,
TFS, Carol

What a good observation, Andrija !
And a good stuff for an original winter picture!
The ribbon of snow between the two lamps is stunning!
The textures are so fine and the vertical composition enmphasizes this unusual wonder of winter.
