Nice job Michael. I have one suggestion, purely subjective. It appears that there are tracks near the top of the photo, which interupts the smooth lines of the rest of the photo. I suppose they could be edited out, or even more simply cropped out. I think the photo would still be very effective, as the shadows of most of the trees will still be visible. Very nice composition and exposure!

Thanks for all the nice comments. Harry, I agree that the choppy snow is not ideal, but I think cropping that much would really hurt the image (I tried it). I guess I will just have to go back up there and try again. good thing there is a lot of winter left.

Mike - I am really pleased to see at least one of your fabulous 'winter aspens' amongst the finalists (even if it wasn't the one that I commented on).
Well deserved and my fingers are crossed for you in the next round.
