Really like the composition and subject they great, along with the fact you had to stand around in the cold to take that shot. It looks to low contrast for me, think it would look great as a standard B&W or B&W with a solarize (do they even do solarizing in digital)effect to add the feeling of more cold.

That did make nice difference, but please keep in mind that the statements made are only my opinion. My views on art may not always go with the main stream opinions in the photography world, so always follow your own heart first.My formal training (in college) was in B&W fine art photography (color was a pain to work with)and that was far enough back that I actually had one lecture (not that much sank into my head) by Ansel Adams. Now that dating me on that little I know about current (or even past) day photography trends. I would not want to see someone change a picture simply because of something I or anyonesaid, unless they really believe the changewas ahelp.

I listened to what you had to say and changed the picture. After it was done I agreed with your response. In the digital world anything can be done quickly and is always fixable. Thanks.

Thanks Musket. The area just had a freezing rain the day before and everything looked like it was made of glass. It truly was magical. I took a few pics but none did it justice.

.....I like the photo presentation here! For me the framing is perfect, without it the picture would be not so good IMO.

Very nice and thanks for posting it. BTW, I did not see the original post but this one I like.
