Lovely composition beautifully processed - the textures in the wool and the snow are so tactile.

On the whole I have not been a great fan of Topaz; you are changing my mind. Apart from the excellent composition (using the curve of the track) and the classy b&w conversion you have given the image a very painterly touch, so reminiscent of Breughel's winter scenes. Excellent!

A great photo, Nazih - lots of armosphere in b/w.
I must look at this Topaz software.

A fine image of the harsh reality of village life in winter, Nezih, emphasized by the mono conversion (with Topaz).

A great composition one full of immense charm, character and that all important ingredient 'Sheep'.

The Topaz Software really holds its own compared to other similar post production packages Nezih.

I am still enjoying your well crafted images--- This one almost speaks of home--- our sheep are of the Katahdin variety, they look a bit different but still universal as Ann has said!
