Hello Paul. It certainly looks cold. My attention immediately
goes to the triangle formed by the two logs. My guess is that is what caught your attention. It would have caught mine as well. I might have cropped out the tree on the left that is leading away from the subject. I have not made any successful snow images because I have failed to obtain contrast in the snow to show its detail and avoid white emptiness. I think you have avoided this issue but perhaps a bit more separation
in the snow might be helpful.   Posted: 02/06/2021 22:37:07

Paul - I regret to say that I am not drawn to this image - the crossed logs make for an interesting foreground, but I find the remainder of the image a little bland.   Posted: 02/09/2021 06:16:49

Just the sort of scene I am drawn to.

The snow has added quite a lot to this image and the crossed logs tell a story.   Posted: 02/10/2021 04:43:08

Hi Paul: I like to look at winter scenes and not go there...that's why I live in AZ... having said that, my eye was drawn to the upper left corner of your image where there seems to be a triangular shape sign? That shape totally distracted me and kept focusing on what that could be. If this were my image, I would consider cloning that out or cropping that edge a bit.   Posted: 02/11/2021 11:31:32

Hi Paul
Full respect for getting out in that weather you controlled the detail in the white areas really well love the lead in of the stream very strong I am wondering if a slight crop from the top might hold the eye a little more.   Posted: 02/19/2021 14:33:48
