Very beautiful,pleasing photo with a great tonality,3D depth and a composition for seminars.Compliments, Chris

Hello Harry, Both captures are marvellous - no doubt. I prefer personally take 2 because it concentrates the attention on the four birches - touched up with the 'virgin snow' against clear sky. Take 1 seems to be more the 'cliche'type - trees, snow, clouds - winter fairy tale, generating a different mood. Ok, thats my humble opinion. However, both captures are equaliy excellent - the rest is pure 'gustibus'. Comliments, regards, E.

The first version is steller, yet more natural looking. It doesn't get any better than this.

Harry Lichtman
Having trouble loading the second image in the Forum. I know there is a way, can't remember. Sorry:)

Raymond Banfield
Harry, what a great B/W. Everything works in this capture. Kudos for a great photograph...RAY

Siva Swaroop V
Nice image... Well done!

Jörg Vetter
Well captured. The normal light makes it lovely. BR Joerg

Lalit Deshmukh
Great shot. B&W is perfect choice. Both are great images. I would go somewhere between those two.

Bogdan Gavrus
great tones and composition,very good work

Nikolay Stanev
Great Winter Scene Beautiful!Fantastic lighting and subject.Harry, I think this is an excellent photo in many ways! Good job with the composition. Also the low sun adds to the texture of the snow. Congratulations!

Harry Lichtman
One more try.

John Gettis
Liked both photos but to me the second for some reason feels colder

Not Here Anymore
Harry... Two extremely well done images, but so totally different. I have nothing new to offer technically, but I'll vote for No. 1, for the same reason that one writer prefers the darker sky version. I prefer the representative Winter scene, with clouds in the sky... but the drama of No. 2 is so well done. Print and display both! You can't go wrong then :-) Mike

Leo Burkey
Harry I agree with all that Chris had to say and add that you did a great handling that snow. It it filled with delicate high tones. Well done!

Harry Lichtman
Thanks Leo & Chris - I appreciate the high praise. These trees just made it easy for me. I look forward to visiting with them sometime again. Harry

Christopher Harris
Harry- Not sure how I missed this one...But it is really one of your finest black and white offerings. This is very much in the photographic style of Ansel Adams; regardless of how cliche that might sound. Superb tonal range. I'd really like to see you do more black and white too. Well done! This is going straight into "My Favorites." Cheers! Chris

10-10 Both are fabulous .

Bela Laszlo Molnar
Yes. It is beautiful. Cheers; Bela

Nadya R.
The light one is gorgeous!

Slawomir Radek
For me the light one is better :)
When I look at it I have a feeling similar to the one I get while a sunny winter day - light is simply everywhere, like passing through all obstacles.

More beautiful "Last try".

Ode to Winter Any compositional preferences between this image and the following one. Clouds add some added sky interest, but dark sky adds to the simplicity. COmments welcome.
