Very catch. I would have like to have seen with the frame rotated 90CW and then with the tree put off to the right side of the frame. Still a very nice catch... looks cold!

Beautiful use of a winter landscape to your photographic advantage.

Beautiful. The tree looks beautiful, the deer look beautiful, but the snow at the bottom looks like snow. Cropping out half of the bottom snow might be more appealing overall. 8

great title! The snow covered tree looks great, it's shame the deer weren't closer but they are pretty nervous things!

Lovely - a thoroughly pleasing and beautifully crafted photo! My only niggle is that I would prefer the fence post above the left-most deer to be cloned out.

Those sticks coming out of their heads (lol!) almost make me wish the deer weren't there... I like the mutedness of the image... That tree is GORGEOUS! (not voting yet)

What are those things growing out of their heads? Next time step to the side so it doesn't look like a birth defect.
