This shot was taken downtown Saskatoon after a heavy haw frost. There is a lot of traffic so I clponed out a yellow vehicle and some traffic lights. HDR was added. I include the original shot in a workshop.

Hello David

I do so like the semetry images, none more so that this one of yours, to have the covering of snow contrasting with the sterdy trees and the line of lamps, is quite divine. The shadows and light against the snowy branches add the attraction,first class David.

Stv :)))

Hello David :)

This snow-covered alley among trees and lamps looks very romantic.
Natural colours and beautiful light and contrast between whiteness and black,
they create the very nice and interesting composition.

With best wishes.

A classic winter scene that draws the viewer's eye down the pathway into the image which is well framed by the lampposts and trees. Good balance of light and shadow with just a hint of color to create a very artistic winter composition.
Nicely Done

Bonjour David,
Superbe, splendide, féérique, en France, les Champs Elysées n'ont qu'à bien se tenir, leurs décorations de Noël à côté d'un tel travail de la nature ,ne vaut rien du tout...
David, c'est bien vu, bien pris, cela forme une allée superbe, avec les réverbère qui se fondent dans ce joli paysage de ces branches givrées...
Excellent travail, merveilleusement mis dans une belle lumière ...

Ciao David, fascinating composition with wonderful frozeb trees, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Boa tarde David,

Excellent vertical and geometric composition. Very GOO DOF and POV. Light and contrast are perfect.


A lovely perspective with amazing winter scene, David!

Great clarity and well kept contrasts with nice POV and DOF.
Good shot!

Kind regards,

Hi David,
a lovely winter shot with a great PoV - I remember in one of your earlier shots you mentioned a slight loss of sharpness when converting to HDR and it can be seen here with the lamppost on the left which is sharper on the original - are you using Photomatix Pro 4?- it may be something to do with the aligning of images options

Hi David,
A lovely POV through this snow covered corridor.
Perfect PP work performed to clone the things you mentioned in your note.
Good light management producing even exposure throughout!
A great composition and quite a depth into the perspective.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello David

Missed this one. Looks like cherry blossom although I know it's really ice & frost. Excellent graphism with nice use of diminishing linear perspective & lead in lines. Good sidelight from the right. Tfs!
