Hi Adrian. I like your compostion in this winters picture. I like the way the light plays on the snow and light up the trees to a golden colours. And the the cold of the shadow. It shows what a difference sun can make. well done TFS.

Lieber Adrian,
Das Gebiet um Disentis ist so eindrücklich und noch so wild geblieben. Ich habe es aber im Winter nie gesehen. Und wunderschön ist es!
Feines Winterlicht über dem beschneiten Bachbett..und Spuren von Tieren.
das erfreut das Herz!
Herzlichen Dank

Salut Adrian
Frumos paraias de munte care curge printre pietre.Imi place!
Numai bine, Oana

A well chosen frame with minimum range, Adrian. I like the remains of snow on the stones through which a brook seems to be flowing. Very good use of light, emphasizing contrasts between the white snow and numerous dark objects such as the flowing water, trees and shrub.
A really beautiful picture that pleases the eyes.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Adrian, Good composition and lighting. Very beautiful shot.

Hi Adrian,
Very nice composition and very well handled exposure. Good choice of POV to capture the shades of the small rocks on the stunning white snow.

Hello Adrian,
A fine well-composed mid-winter shot. The angle of the light, exposure of the sunlit and shaded snow are excellent and the young larches add a nice colour contrast.
Thank you and best regards,

Lieber Adrian!

Du zeigst uns eine herrliche Winterlandschaft, die mein Herz höher schlagen lässt. Die Formen und Farben sind wunderbar, die Atmosphäre ist einladend. Ich mag auch das Licht- und Schattenspiel, wobei die voll im Schatten liegende Fläche im linken Teil ein bisschen gross ist.

Liebe Grüsse


BEAUTIFULLY captured contrasts.
Congrats from Mario in Cagary.

Ciao Adrian,
Grazie degli auguri di Buona Pasqua che ricambio a te e ai tuoi familiari;
splendido paesaggio con il picolo torrente illuminato da una fantastica luce radente, ottima definizione, bellissimi i colori e perfettamente gestiti i forti contrasti di luce.
Grazie e complimenti.

Hallo Adrian

Ich liebe den Titel und die art wie der kleine Bach die sonne Seite von der Schatten seite trennt, die farben sind wunderbar und das bild ist sehr scharf
Grüsse Jacqueline

Hi Adrian.
Stunning place and perfect POV as well as composition of the image. However, the key point of the shot (I think) it is outstanding exposure of such contrast scene. I also like reproduction of cold, fresh air and crisp sharp details of the entire scene. Well done and TFS.

Ciao Adrian. Con la neve non si può scherzare o si è bravi o ci si deve dedicare ad altri scatti. Eccellente.
