About the Image(s)

The small trees in the heavy snow are converted to black and white by using PS to highlight the charm of light, shadow and lines.

A well-composed picture. The side light creates nice shadows and enhances the structure in the snow. I also liked the shadow from the tree in the foreground.

I think I would crop from the top in order to make the two repeating forms clearer.   Posted: 02/09/2021 15:23:00

Hi Ying,
Very nice.
As Arne said well-structured image.
I like the layers of snow and texture of snow.
It is personal preference though, I might increase the contrast just a little bit.
Well done!   Posted: 02/10/2021 19:08:52

Istanbul is 70F today, but we're expecting snow next week. Your work is well-captured & edited. I don't know the daily snowfall and depth; but snow covered pine and shady snow dunes look amazing. I do not agree with Haru to increase contrast as it does cause extra darker shadows as well as you've captured on a bright sunny day I guess. This already means hi-contrast and also the reason of blue color cast in color version. What was your white balance? Briefly your shooting angle, great toning and sharp texture are all commendable. Thanks for sharing Ying.   Posted: 02/11/2021 05:43:27
