Wow, I froze my little feet off for this shot! That snow was 18 inches deep that I had to slog through!

Almost no post shot editing. I added 5% contrast and 10% saturation just to compensate for web saturation failure. I did not sharpen; it just made halos around all of the dark objects.

I'm unsure how people will react to the lens flare. I wanted it in the shot, but some might not like it. I'm also unsure whether my point of view is radical enough. I took many shots from close and far away, and found this POV made the line of the fence most clear and interesting.

If you are reading this, you must be bored.

I like it too. But I think maybe just a little bit lighter would have helped. Anyway, that's what I would have liked to see. I like the POV. Nice shot overall.

Nice shot. I especially like the composition decision where one side of the fence shows human presence and on the other, it is just nature.

A little too dark for my taste, but great picture overall. Love the idea. The streak of sunlight is a little bit distracting, but not significantly. 8

Nice, quiet, evening shot. Pink and blue snow looks like cotton candy. The thin, black border goes well with this shot as well.

Beautiful serene photo. The softness of the snow amplifies the silence that this photo expresses. The barely visible mountains in the background hiding in the mist bring in another dimension to your photo. Top lighting, except for the lens flare, which is annoying in my opinion. Not so much the lens flare itself but the position it is in, in the middle of the wire (9)
