Comment by KaDi:
Greetings from the Critique Club!

A moody image with the wonder of a lightly fallen snow. The branches of the trees outlined with snow gives an interesting texture and dimension to the scene.

The overall composition follows the classic concept of the rule of thirds by allowing the path to end off center. The path itself provides an appropriate entry to the scene. There are, however, a few distractions (as noted by some of your commenters. The drainage grates could have been eliminated so they would not conflict with the lines of the walkway. The parked cars demand attention because of their detail and so take away from the rest of this quite composition competing with the detail in the brances.

The exposure has the range of detail one expects but the scene feels a little too grey. In scenes like this, I strive to achieve the full range of tones from a true black (which you have here) to a true white--the snow should be, in my opinion, truely white. A little adjustment of the levels (contrast) could achieve this.

Overall, a fine composition that lacks that final "punch" to make it a winner. (As far as the challenge of a "tribute," the commenters made clear that they did not understand who you were trying to emulate--I'm sure that hurt your scores. As for Ansel, it's just not the subject matter he shot--snow, yes...suburban scenery, not so sure.)

Keep shooting!

Beautiful, love the way the sunshine is on the ridge, give the creek a colder feel to it.

Comment by macrothing:
4 - Good potential. Criticism; the apartments/chalets/whatever detract in my opinion from the overall feel of this shot, including their color. Perhaps this with toning or b&w may have been better not sure. I think this even cropped, still using this good sharp perspective (even sharper be better), trying to get a fraction more detail in the water/creek/ice/snow, and cropped at the bend of the creek/just before the 'railing'/fence, may have made this even better in my opinion, although obviously - a quite different shot.

They're not fighting - the one is just tickling the other one relentlessly. :) Nice shot - great texture / detail.

Comment by Rikki:
The use of leading lines in this image is spot on and highly effective. As my eye is drawn into the photo, alas, there is a figure just to the horizon to stop me from going any further. The snow seems a bit gray though. Since we could clone out items, I would have probably cloned out the drain on the right of the road. This would really emphasize the road and it's distinct features. I would also remove the dark area to the bottom right of the image ;) Great job though and a bit of a boost in curves would really make this image a great one! Great shot my friend.

I really like the way the limbs and branches are accented with the snow. THere is a slight tilt that is sort of distracting.
