Agreed.

The first one is a masterpiece to hang on a wall with a good frame.
Great winter atmosphere, unforgettable world

Really wonderful ! I was born in Finland and remember the amazing winters...
Very little light yet somehow magical. Look forward to more when the snow has settled!

Haven't seen that finnish snow for twenty years or so ---so a real nostalgia trip for me!
I still visit every now and then but have not braved the winter yet as can't hack the cold!

Beautiful treatment of muted colours...I presume somewhat treated in photoshop?
Makes me proud to be a FZ5 owner...

Thanks for the nice feedback!

It's funny how the landscape looks frigid to say the least in the first picture, but it was actually just 1-2 degrees below zero when I took the picture. Still, enough for steam to rise from the water.

No PS-treatment, except for crop, border and USM of course. I might have tweaked the curves a bit, but I'm not sure.

Today it's been raining the whole day.. November really is a shitty month to buy a new camera...

The Finnish winter as you remember it from 20 years back is melting away year by year, at least here in Helsinki. March can be decent, but the rest of the winter tends to suck most of the time. :-?

Beautiful shots. I am from Germany, now living in L.A., and I don't miss to live through those winters. However, the scenery can be absolutely gorgeous, and the crisp air reinvigorating. Those shots are perfect. Lighting, composition, exposure, WB are right on. Great job.
