This was taken las year, and I just decided to post it for critique on the print it would make as i searched my files.
This is basically how the day looked, but I added some contrast to make the trees a bit more visible. The eagle is quite easier to see in the large original.
All criticism is very welcome.
Sorry for not being around much, but work is busy.It is sad not to see everyone's photos as I am used to.

Hi Doug!

Not the prettiest day for sure, but mood is still nice I think. The composition is good and the eagle gives some life to the image. Snowed trees look fine even in a weather like this. Nice capture, TFS!

Bonjour Doug

très bon chois en NB, bien cadrée. Bravo
Amicalement Robi

Hi Doug.
I like your selection of pictured subject. Very impressive scene and nice POV and composition. Shot is exposed excellently. DOF is perfect too. My best wishes and kind regards.

I like the simple almost graphic look to this image Doug. It is a very strong composition with a nice value range. I like it a lot.

TFS.... work has a way if getting in the way of hobbies huh?

Hi Doug,
I really like the mood of the photo the stark white with the conrasts of the tress and grasses, its just like winter, cold and lonely, excellent photo, I love it.

Have a nice week

Hi Doug,
This picture has interesting nostalgic mood. I like this almost black and white scenery with nice composition. I wish we could see the eagle better in fact :) Well seen and exposed. Thanks,

I understand busy...been hectic in my life too. I'm hoping to see light of day soon.

Lovely shot...love the depth you create here. Very creative!

Hello Doug

I had to look closely to see some colour ,the lighting and contrast is well done.
I really like the composition with the colony of trees.You have created a lovely mood in this shot.I think the eagle is very secondary to the way the tree grouping.
The foreground adds a nice subtle vertical element.

Hello Doug,
I like this scene for its simplicity, and for the five tonal values that I find in the scene. there are four basic layers in this scene, the foreground is as white as one could want, the second is the weeds, grasses that simulate he branches in the trees, the open area between the trees and grasses, and finally the great stand of trees that contain both the darkest darks, and the mid tones of the scene. I feel that this is an excellent B/W in color.
A respectable image seen in the winter's whitened cloak...

sorry for the delay, but this is super, what a wonderful scene this is

Hi Doug,
It's like a painting, it has a very nice appeal to it, I really like the group of trees and the way you have composed them in the image. I can see the raptor in the tree. Very nice. TFS.:)

Hi Doug, this is a fantastic rural snow scene, it would look good as a calendar shot. I like the high contrast and the trees have good texture and detail. Excellent pov and very well composed.
