HI Wolfgang

Not the easiest shots to make shooting into the light, but I think you have balanced the light / shadow very well.  The highlights are suitably contrasting with the myriad of dark branches. I also think the central composition works well here too! 


Very well done!

Peter, Benjamin, Linda, Alf,

many thanks for your apprecations.

Yes, light was a bit difficult - I used bracketing and merged exposures with an HDR tool.

Linda Liebl

Very effective processing of a scene punctuated by a spectacular sky.  Compliments.  ~~~~~L

I love the shot, most people would miss the tree stand, It almost looks as if ice or frost is on the tree.

Hi Wolfgang. This is a great shot! Good choice of black and white and the framing and composition work very well for me. Well done!
