Very nicely done, the trees forming a peak with the mirroring work very well and the fog brings it alive.

Radu Carp

A cold and quiet winter day so well seen here,mist creates a special mood in this image together with soft reflection,compliments.

A very lovely, very beautiful photo. Yes, I love this photo. 

roger sonneland

wolfgang,  would have to agree with all of the comments above,  but what really stands out here for me is the total naturalness of your image,  it appears to me that you have been guided by the elements and good composition.  really nice work!

Jack McRitchie
This is a beautiful and beautifully organized photo. It all fits together like an ethereal dance of tones, a winter minuet.

Bela Laszlo Molnar

Beautiful, very nice work. Bravo.

Tony French

Wolfgang, the tones in this are quite wonderful. The various circular formations are very effective, particularly the ice in the foreground and the way it points toward the group of trees and their reflection. The snowy mist enhances the atmosphere nicely. 

Stephen Penland

What a beautiful composition.  The foreground ice was kind enough to allow just enough open water to accommodate the reflections of the trees on the opposite shore.  The fact that the trees come to a point here and are also enveloped in a light fog add to the visual attraction.  It's a very appealing winter scene.

Richard John Edwards

Larry Greenbaum

Wolfgang,  The number of comments this image has generated speak to its artistic impact.   This is a wonderful soft capture with lots of mood and superb composition. You certainly have a terrific eye for art and photography.  The shape and depth of the foreground snow frame this image perfectly.

Christal Steele

I love how the reflection of the trees is nestled in the curvature of the ice/snow line.  The fog creates a wonderful mood, and overall it's a lovely image. 

Manuel Gonzalez

Ramon Monegal

Hi, Wolfgang.

Very nice work! Your composition was perfect, and so was the exposition. B&W fits perfectly to the mood that your image transmits. So... well done! :)

I don't have any suggestions for improvement. This is an excellent photo presentation... Mike

Hi Wolfgang

I think that Christal summed it up very eloquently "The reflections of the trees nestled in the curvature of the ice"  Also the way the pine trees are presented with an element of depth to the right, they give a very distinct impression of the fog, as thier visibility diminishes. Great winter scene.

Sincere Compliments


Linda Liebl

It's all been said by those who commented before me. Kudos on a fine composition.  Compliments! ~~~~~~L

Lester A. Garcia

Wonderful image, Wolfgang...lovely mysticism created by fog...lovely reflections...wonderful composition and best

Wolfgang Arnold

wow - I'm overwhelmed by so many and so encouraging comments - big thanks to all of you!

The fog was really 'bad' that day, so the atmosphere almost was there. The ice, slowly growing into the lake, was a lucky encounter. So, I tried a bit to get ice and reflection into the composition you're seeing here.

cheers, Wolfgang

Martin M. Gatti

Great capture and well seen image.  Makes me want to put on my gloves, coat and hat.

Pnina Evental

I like the reflected trees that are creating  like an" island" in the winter snow. Very beautiful composition with a good seasonal depiction.

Marta Eva LLamera
