Absolutely Beautiful! Excellently composed and perfect exposure give this photo a 10 in the technical department. Great Mood as well. #64

Not only is this an extremely pleasing photograph, but Darwin has solved a technically challenging exposure problem to boot. The combination of two discrete color temperatures in the same photo shows flare, and a dab hand with a meter. It looks like maybe an 81A filter was used (judging from the sky) to warm up the snow in the fg, but that's just a guess. I would love some more technical information on this shot. #94

Hi Darwin,

Excellent photograph!

Would you consider this a digitally modified image or a traditional (film-based) photo? How did you create it? #113

I used two grad filters to make this photo. A orange grad over the skies and trees, and a blue grad upside down over the snow. The image was taken with a 24mm lens using Velvia film and the exposure was taken a +1 from the meter reading.

A nice picture. Shadow is used nicely.
Author had a very good feel for the moment, situation and colour.

Simply a wonderful shot. #121

This is one of the most beautiful patterns with fantastic harmony you can find in nature. I hope it's completely natural. #176

Wauw, this is just beautiful! Never have I experienced such serenity in a row of trees... Wonderful, keep up the good work and hopefully one day I will be on this site as well (I've got plenty of time since I'm only 17 years old)

just beautiful and it's too complicated for me to understand the technique used. #325

It is beautiful. I know this is what everybody keeps saying but it turely is. Katherine #437

I lean heavily to the digital side of imaging because you simply can't create pictures like this with only film, lenses, meters, and filters...

Or so I thought. This "un-manipulated" photo makes my methods feel cheap and dirty.

Congratulations. Thank you making our day better. #2539

Great Photograph, was this an experiment on this picture or did you know how it was going to turn out? #3071

This is unquestionably a WONDERFUL photo. That is was obtained without digtial manipulation is fine, but the end result is far more important than how it was acchived.
