After the snow, we got a bit of icing rain (not as much as the guys in MA and ME though). The sunset lights were reflecting on the ice. it was nice but really cold! Shot using a 2 stops ND grad filter.

Processed with Melancholytron filter and various layers to give the sky some depth. Border is mine, made with a brush that mimicks frost.


Following MattO's comment, here is the greetings version! Thanks for the suggestion!

Was looking at your profile and even the thumb for this one stands out. Like the others who have commented, this is a wonderful shot. I like how you've captured the "duality" (if you will) of the coldness of winter and the warmth from the sun. Excellent image.

That is a really gorgeous shot. Fantastic sky, great light across the snow, beautiful barn, and a nice interesting foreground to balance everything.

I agree with what others have said this makes a wonderful postcard, calendar shot and/or holiday card. Heh, you could make it all three products. Love how the way the sunlight comes across the ice towards you. The photo is very nicely composed. The reeds peeking out of the snow in the bottom right is an interesting juxtaposition to the sun peeking out from the horizon in the left hand slightly above the middle of the composition. The house/barn with the pine tree lightly dusted with snow on the right is very pictureque! The border complements the scene because it's frost edges matches the wintery feel and mood of the composition.

the late afternoon light, the sunset and barn offsetting one another, the snow providing the feeling of winter - a great postcard for the season

Very pretty and the blue tones convey a wintry feeling, with people all snug in their beds.

This is beautiful! If you layer a set of lights on the tree on the right, it would make a superb Christmas card. It's a great calendar shot just the way you have it posted. It would look rather timeless if you erase the power line.

I could see this as a nice canvas hanging in an office somewhere. Very pretty.

Edit to add

Put some text down in the lower corner that says Happy Holidays 2008 and you have a great post card or Holiday card. Maybe submit this to a stock site. I'd bet it would get picked up.
