  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2004 08:54:36 PM
Oooh. <- That utterance means your photo evoked an immediate reaction. After further study... Ooooh! ;-) I like everything about this shot, but probably the biggest contributing factor is the angle. Great job.

Stunning. The blowing snow is perfect. Outstanding job of meeting the challenge, executing the perfect image, and evoking a mood of the forgotten. A rare 10.

This is a great composition. I love the low angle and the way that you included the foreground. Very nice lighting, too. This is by far my favorite (of many!) wagon wheel type shots in this challenge. 8.
