A view looking back at the Messes mountains from below on the outskirts of the town of Zalau after the first snow falls of this coming winter season. These mountains in the back ground are the location of my previous posts of the first snow and of autumn.

I like your picture, because I can see the mood of nature from it. Nice realistic color, good composition

It is a Norman Rockwell picture perfect example of his technique...I could see you doing nothing to improve this shot, with exception of telling me if you know..what kind of tree is this?...

Hello Steve,
A beautiful composition, a strong atmosphere!
A very attractive image that is a pleasure to my eyes, the special light in combination with the snow gives a great effect...
Supoerb placement of the fine old tree!

Hi Steve and Ioana,
Lovely composition of the Romanian countryside in this image. The tree is a beautiful FG focal point. The sky with gray clouds and a touch of blue along with some snow in the scene works wonderfully to convey the November chill. Really fine,
Well done
Richard...see you later

Hi Steve

what a wonderfully winter shot. the light is magic in the picture and really makes it special. Composition is excellent with most of the tree cropped, it just works really well.


This is an excellent photograph... I think. I love the mood and the composition you chose with the off center bare tree framing the red structures. I've read that some artists think no painting is complete without a touch of red in it. It really does add impact to the image.
