    This is just sublime. Almost like a pencil illustration.

    Yes, Paul. That is a very good image. I particularly like how you've presented the sky - the perfect complement to the tree.

    What is that about the tree. is it stripped bark? It has the effect of making it look skeletal.

    I have come back to this image several times...I can't get enough. Beautiful image, I really like the snow plastered on it from the wind.

    i'm not sure about the bark and not knowing much about trees i dont really know. i'm drawn to it every time i pass it on the way to a mill i go to.i think i've been lucky with the sky/clouds as its help make the image.
    again thanks for the feedback

    Well .......... sort of.

    The fact that the sky/clouds are 'right' when you are able to be there does indeed involve an element of luck, unless you are a pro and can devote whole days to being there in order to get the sky right. But assuming you don't have that opportunity available, deciding that the sky/clouds are right and that you go ahead to capture the photograph, is not luck. That's skill and judgement.

    Great shot, Paul.

    Very stark, moody, isolated. Perfect perspective with both the upper branches and the snow showing the direction of the prevailing wind. Congrats

    sir you flatter me no i'm not a pro and i had about 15mins(tea break)here as i rode by.and like most of my images not plan and no time as i'm normally working.but i've been trying to perfect what i believe the pro's refer to as the photographer eye.so as i'm out and about i'm always on the look out for a image.and sometimes i get to go back to a area but at different times and seasons.

    I think the effect that appears to be stripped bark is actually wet snow that has stuck to that part of the tree that had the most shade and maybe the least exposure to wind.

    A lovely delicate shot. Like the colour treatment and slight film grain effect and certainly reminds me of a drawing. I have reservations about the slightly posterized effect in the highlights of the tree trunk but overall very pleasing.
