Is there a bit of haloing around the skyline on the right? Sad

Hi Ann, that does look so cold, you have done well with the whites in this almost mono image.

All the best Nick

This is about as close as I could get to a wild buzzard, too, Ann Wink. Makes for a beautiful scene. Carol

A natural mono. That little touch of color in the grass is lovely. Nicely done whites, too.

Nicely balanced composition, Ann, good diagonals and a well placed tree. The slight colour from the reeds shows the bleakness of the scene.

I don't think I know enough about haloing to comment but I do see a sort of soft darker grey outline above the white ridge at the back. Is that haloing?

Lovely image, by the way. Very cool how that twisty tree stands out and so firmly against the cold white Smile

Another super seasonal scene, Ann, luv the composition of this one, the lone tree always works well and the undulating hills in the background really enhance your composition.
Well done.

You must have the eyes of a hawk to spot a buzzard from that distance! This is a very stark and bleak winter landscape and the tree is perfectly placed in the shot
