Very pretty picture. I like it very much. All I have to say though is, I'm glad you're there and I'm not :) .... it does look awfully cold. Any idea what was the temp/wind chill?

Re: Lake Ontario winter
Very nicely done ! The photgraph is one that I can just set there and look at, almost seeing the waves coming in.

Craig, great photo! You can feel the cold and the wind in this one.

Wonderful picture - reminds me of a winter I spent in Oshawa, Ontario. Down by the lake shore, the word 'cold' took on a whole new meaning.....

this is such a cool 8) picture. The storm clouds, the bare trees, the detailed rocks, I could go on and on :!:

A wonderful shot, CraigH.

May I suggest you a cut that concentrates attention on the house ?

Explanation :
Beside applying the rule of thirds, the house is now at the crossing zone of three composition lines :
- the horizon
- an ideal slanted line (suggested by the rock edge on the bottom left part ) leading from the bottom left to the house
- the shoreline starting from the bottom right corner.
That tree is a real luck : it helps balancing the composition.

BTW, I have played a little bit with burn brush tool on cloudes, waves and stones to enhance depth ( and drama :wink: )

I agree that cutting it directs attention to the house, but when my attention is directed to the house, I lose the sense of the wind whipping up the waves - and the sense of sheer cold.

I like the original version better. Then the house seems to offer a bit of warm shelter.
