    Has a nice crisp feeling. I can just hear the snow crunch as I walk closer.

    Two points, Jack - firstly, with the sunshine and snow, for me the image could be a touch brighter; secondly, the fence posts seem to lean into the corral - a bit of perspective correction needed here? or were they like that?

    Nevertheless, this is a pleasing composition with a great sense of depth - I like it.

    Very nice. It definitely gives the feeling that it is cold.

    Re: Cold corral

    i see what you mean the fence is leaning in probably should have tried to straighten i an sure this is due to 16mm lens .

    Yes, I think this has a slight case of barrel distortion. But it should be curable, it is very slight. The 16-35mm f/2.8L does have slight barrel distortion on the 16mm end but nothing that I haven't been able to correct with lens correction opt in PP with Lightroom or CS5. Usually more noticeable in images like this with a lot of horizontal or vertical lines like fences or walls.

    I still think it is a slight perspective problem rather than lens distortion. The view is up a hill - on a full-frame sensor a 16mm focal length is very wide, so it would take only a slight upward tilt of the camera to cause the verticals to converge as shown.

    After staring at it for a while i think it is a perspective issue. Still easy to correct though.

    Re: Cold corral

    Hi there Jack,

    As others have said, this is a really nice composition.

    My contribution on the constructive critique is to add that I think it would stand a slight addition of some Local Contrast Enhancement, applied with UnSharp Mask (USM); try just 10% amount, 100px radius and 0 threshold.

    That would also address the dynamic range which looks a touch over cautious and push the white and black oint out to nearer the ends of the histogram. In doing so, it may solve the brightness issue rasied by Philip (MrB).

    Good work,
