Happy New Year to you all! Hope Santa brought you some nice new gear and that you’ve had a chance to use it already this year!

We had a white Christmas this year, which was lovely! This was taken over the Christmas break in a nearby wood from a similar view point to this shot back in the autumn… I think I can feel a seasonal sequence coming on here!

I’ve added a B&W version for comparison – which do you prefer?


Technical details:
Exposure: ISO 100, 1/15th sec. @f11
PS Elements: cropped to adjust composition, midtones brightened via levels, brightness/contrast and red saturation increased; B&W – converted via mode/grayscale, contrast increased.
Sharpened/bordered/framed.

Camera:Canon EOS 30 d
Lens:Sigma 24 - 70 mm
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Colour version for me. It's a nice image that deserves more attention. Might be being bypassed because of the central signature.

I'll stick with V1, nice composition with a lovely depth to it....those snow covered branches make it look like an arcade ?....lovely, peaceful, seasonal image !

Beautiful composition but it's a shame there's not a bit more texture in the snow. The black and white version benefits from a bit more contrast — there are very few pixels below about 10% intensity so there aren't any pure blacks there.
