    Sharon,
    Very moody it is like a water colour. I like it.
    I would probably have put a stronger vignette on it and probably ruined it, the location of the trees on the left and the marks on the right give depth. It seems to have an infinite depth.

    I like everything except the stuff you added to the sides, which is probably your favorite part of the photo. Even so, I always admire your creativity.

    I am becoming a fan of your work, Sharon. I really like the monochrome style you produce. On this occasion, I tend to agree with Mike about those lines on the sides. On the upper half of the rhs they look like scratch marks to me - ie part of the aged affect (which I like) - but on the lower half they seem more like an attempt to suggest wind, and so a bit too obvious for my taste. I would be interested to know what your intention was with this.

    Hi Greg, and thanks.

    Just an aging texture to lighten the overall effect which was a little heavy on the top right.
    I certainly wasn't trying to convey wind..it's a very still snowy winter scene.

    I had no intention beyond that..I liked it.

    I like all of it except that lower right. The lines are going against the flow of the ridges of the snow.
