Nice concept here that I think you pulled off fairly well. The dark dramatic sky gives an eerie feel to the photo and is a good contrast with the brighter/white foreground. Perhaps would have been better if the tree was a little more well lit. I feel it's too dark for the foreground. The footprints in the snow in the foreground (not the ones made by the walking man) are a bit distracting. It may be all natural but I'm left trying to figure out if the walking man made them or if they were already there. In any case, it served as a bit of a distraction for me. This next comment may be really nitpicking but for some reason the snow around the tree and leading to the foreground almost has a shiny reflective type surface which seems out of place with the more powdery looking snow on the right side of the picture. A suggestion I might make is perhaps the photo would be enhanced by the man wearing something white so he pops off of the dark background. As it is he almost blends in with a quick look. Compositionally the photo is good though some may have been annoyed at the man's shadow trailing off the edge of the photo. Again, I think you had a nice concept and came really close to having something really special here. Brighten up the tree and the man a bit more and I'd think you be a contender for a top 50 shot in a difficult Free Study challenge. Keep up the good work.

With expert editing it's hard to say....but either you did great lighting or great processing...either way Great Job. Nice balance with the tree and person on each side. The dark sky and white snow really adds lots of drama to this.

What an amazing picture if it didn't have the person in it. Cool idea though.
