[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After deserved vacation I am back online. I am starting a new series of shots from (the trip and from) Old Mountain. First one was made on a Tresibaba mountain, on the road to Old mountain. Tresibaba is very dificult to pass on a snowy winter days, but we were lucky to pass it on a clear weather.

Hope you like my "apocalyptic view". :-)

As the title says, I dedicate this photo to a great artist, whose critiques I just love to read and when you receive so nice, creative comments from a person whose work you love, then there is no bigger satisfaction for me. Dear Jose (mbrito), thank you for all the nice words, for all unique terms you used when critiquing my work and thanks for great work you're sharing with us!

Hi David & Howdy TL Neighbor!

I like the sweeping curve of the road & the subtle blue vs yellow colour contrast. Good sharpness & diffused lighting. Tfs!

Hi David
Thank you my friend; I love this open «road to nowhere» crossing the iced scenary under a dramatic sky and a bright light.
It's the perfect alegory to the «desperation road» that human life and values are in these grey days; but also the perfect way to the lonely and anonymous heroes with the flame of hope (made of art, or justice, or true...) that gives a few of light to that desolation road. We just have to follow the birds.
Thank you my friend for the wonderful dedication.
Sincerely José.

ovo je jako dobro, svaka cast!

Zdravo David,
Very atmospheric shot excellent winterscape.TFS.


zdravo David;
this is excellent dedication image for Jose
very good pp work, nice colour tones characteristic in winter time, sky looks great
pozdrawiam Karolina

Hi David,
Splendid winter mood on this photo, the dramatically-looking sky and the snowy-frosty road build up a moody composition. I hope you had a great holiday and succeeded to relax. :) TFS.

Vratio si nam se aaa...
Predpostavljam da je bilo odlično zimovanje..
Zdravo Davide...znaš, tipično tvoja obrada..ALI,ne mogu da se odam utisku kao da vidim ponešto sasvim novo ...Naizgled običan put ,pretvorio si u sjajno remek delo..
sve čestitke i sjajan poklon za velikog umetnika Mbrita..

Hi David:

Very nice pp work.
Fantastic composition, beautiful sky and colors.
I like the title and the endless road.


Odlicno kao i uvek..Tvoj licni pecat je tu...A ova plava nijansa koja prati celu sliku samo pojacava utisak zime i hladnoce...Odlicno,batice :))


Hello David, not a dark and moody shot as in your previous series but nevertheless quite an individual style.
Good colour, textures and composition.
The birds are in just the right place too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi David,
amazing work.Like a painting.TFS.Necla.

Hello David.
Very well composed picture.
Just one note, try to use more Kilobites in it.
It will reduce the noise a bit and sharpness becomes more natural.

Hello David.

jose Luis.

Ciao David, beautiful composition with fantastic perspective and superb sky, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola David: quiero felicitarte por este creativo y singular trabajo: Es como entrar en un mundo de ensueños o un mundo de magia.

Hi David!
Superb composition. I like winter landscapes, and this is a good one with many lovely details. It is very nice the snow covered field, the bald trees, the snowy, winding road, the dark clouds and last but not least the dark birds, I think crows. I like the mood of the photo too, maybe for the good and impressive light management.
Thnks, Csilla

HI David...nice perspective, tones and details...great shot.


Hi David,
nice use of "thirds".
The road provides an excellent lead-in feature.
Best regards, Daniel

Krasna fotografija! Lijepo obrađeno!

Bonjour David,

Nice landscape. I like the wide angle view that we enter by the bottom of the image with the road. Nice balanced composition. The clouds by themself would be interesting, but the few birds turning around add even mor interest. Nice work and TFS.


Hola David.
He visitado tu galería y realmente he quedado gratamente impresionado por los excelentes trabajos que tienes expuestos.
Digo expuestos porque realmente parecen cuadros, algunos inquietantes pero en general muy bien trabajados.
Me agrada mucho esta imagen.
Saludos amigos y gracias por visitar my blog y portfolio.
