[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The evening sun was shining over frozen north Finland - a beautiful but cold day.
Had a short break from our SkiDoo trip and took this picture.

Tech Note
I was a bit spectical when taking this image since the sun was still strong - but it came out nice.
I cleaned a couple of flares and sharpened the image - nothing else.

Hi Shir

Well done on a great shot. Everything here looks technically good. You have composed it well, with good light and saturation of colours. DoF is superb. A valuable contribution to the site. :-)

Top Class shot - a real winner. Very well done

Hi Shir,
You deserve gold for this photo. The golden snow with the single tree are amazing. I like the little twinkels from the snow cristals.

L'effet de l'éclairage à contre jour est parfaite et les couleurs sont excellentes. Félicitations pour cette belle composition très agréable à regarder.

Merci pour l'envoie Shir.


Was the color really this orange? It a quite a special image, Shir. I love that little bit of sparkle on the snow in front. ...a gorgeous composition.

TFS Evelynn : )

Amazing colors in this shot Shir
The combination of red and dark colors is perfect.

FANTASTIC - had to shout it. Really like this a lot. Great composition and 10/10 for experimemting even when unsure.

Excellent Shir
Everything I say will be poor seeing your beautiful shot.
Lucky for being there to shot for you and for us this beautiful evening sun.

Beautiful picture. Sun gives nice warm tone and colors, but, as a person who lives in Finland, it also tell about the coldness.
Exellent POV. TfS

Hola Shir.Gracias por tus comentarios.Bonita pagina la tuya.Esta imagen es preciosa.Su contraluz,sombras, composicion y textura dorada,son excelentes.Saludos.

Hi Shir!
After taking a look at your gallery this image caught my immediate attention. What I like perhaps the most is the perfect exposure showing wonderful detail in the snow. Excellent composition proves how breaking the rule of the thirds by placing the horizon in the middle works not only in reflection shots. Beautiful golden tones. About the only thing I'm not crazy about is the fact that the sun is not circular, but there's nothing you could do about that other than trying to fix it in the photoshop. Great picture, congratulations!

Emazing picture!
Excellent composition and very good colours, this a picture for large canvas printing.
