Very "other-worldly", which I love in an image. The undulations and texture of the snow, the dark tones of the shadows and the blasting light. A lovely and eerie balance. The vineyard-like line up of trees at left almost have the quality of a stage setting ("Waiting for Godot" perhaps?).

Just a simple back yard shot, but ata specific moment after a freezing rain storm and luckily aided by a brief sun break in the clouds. This doesn't happen often and I guess I was lucky. Mystery in images is something I strive for. Technically, the negative was not so good (a high contrast scene didn't help matters) and I had to work a lot under the enlarger to get the snow tones right and also separately to bring out the sky (by selective low contrast printing and) that was virtually lost in the capture. I then photographed the print with a digital camera and macro lens for posting. Thanks for your comments, which come really close to my own perception of the mage. I have sold only one copy of it (the lady requested a very large print), but I prefer it to my more popular prints.

The larger view brings the scene to life and allows a much better appreciation of the scene. Your work on the sky has reaped benefits, it now looks like a warm glow rather than blown highlights or over brightness.  Very well done!

Best Regards

Dear Pierre, Sergio, Efim, Alf and Svetlana. Thank you for taking the time to critique. Difficult negatives are always fun to work with, and we get a sense of more involvement in capturing what we have originally perceived at least partly in our mind. Alf, I appreciate your comments on the process and on the advantage of larger images for detailed scenes (a 20 x 24 inch print turned out very nice, although it was getting near the outer limits of my 120 equipment). I look forward in future to visiting all of your portfolios as well, as I have been able to do so far in some cases. Thanks, and happy image exploration!
