This is one that I took today seen as I had the day off due to the snow, wasn't out long though before I got snowed off
Kept the snow underexposed to show more detail and hopefully giving an interesting FG.
First post here so be gentle please

A very simple and effective image. I could be a scene from the Antarctic. The textures and tones are very complimentary. Excellent work...and welcome to CiC. You have some stunning landscapes on your website Alex.

As per Steve's comments.
Didn't realise who the 'Alex Scott' was until I checked your website. I signed up to the EOS forum when I first got my 40D. Soon after, it collapsed - Mmm. Co-incidence?
I didn't know where everyone had gone and then I found CiC and have lived here ever since!

This was shot just across from my home but it felt like the Antarctic and I was dressed for it I can tell you
Really appreciate the feedback and thanks for having a look at my site. I'm liking your work, some of it is original (to me anyway)

I like it; portrait aspect, a white desert, lovely.

Shame on you, not realising who I was , but don't worry it wasn't your fault that it went down but not worth going into it on other forum.
I've seen a few of the old guys on other forums, not been on the new EOS one that much since it's Robert Scott that's running it and not Dave Newton.

Good composition - one niggle is the really bright bit on the left but otherwise I like it.

the graduation in the sky from snow-white to clouds or fog towards the deep dark blue does it even look more interessting and fits well to the structures in the foreground. This wild looking sky gives the picture much more dynamics. I like it.

Good work, Alex. What a fine way to boot up on CiC. You have other jewels to show us methinks.
One small thing, but that I'm not sure of: no sense of scale. It really does convey a vastness that is unlikely to exist in your neighborhood ~ or...

Hi Alex, long time no see. Welcome to CiC! I had a look at your site, and your shots are as impressive as ever. Better, I'm sure.
I like this one. It's fairly minimalist, but it has a good lead line that snakes though the scene. The sky is good - did you use a polarizer?
Regards David's comment. Perhaps a small figure on the horizon trudging through the snow. There's never one when you want one.
Hope you enjoy it here.

Thanks for viewing.

You guy's get the day off when it snows, is that so everyone can play in it before it melts and goes away for twelve years.

Welcome to CiC. Your name and/or reputation seems to proceed you. I do like this and I have had a good look at your website. Great work. I look forward to your contributions here and learning more.

Peter, I don't know about learning more as I'm still learning myself.
Thanks for having a look.

Perhaps a jolly old elf and eight tiny reindeer!
