[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken today, during our trek near Myslenice - the town about 30km from Krakow.
Today it was a beautiful weather, sun, no wind, but temperature about -10C. Because it was dry air, we didn't feel this temperature. It was OK.
The only difficult was a deep snow. I had to make a path through a snow which sometimes was over knees for about 2 hours. So it was very hard. All trek took us 7 hours. So I'm really tired, but also really happy. Beautiful day!
We started from Poreba, went near Sliwnik (619m) and Dzialek (622m), Granice Pass, Kudlacze Challet, Lysina (891m), Trzy Kopce (894m), Lubomir (904m), again Trzy Kopce and Lysina, Sucha Pass (708m), Kamiennik South (827m), Kamiennik North (785m) and again Poreba.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek,
Nice photo of this Winter Art. A little bit overexposed, I think. With a bit more highlights you get a better contrast inside the photo. But it's still beautiful.
Original photo in good sharpness.

Hello Maciej!
Wow! This is fantastic! But I donīt know exactly what's this in your photo! Perhaps the end of a pine...perhaps an ice crystal cropped a thousand times ...eheheheh
Never mind! I love it! TFS and ...Tomorrow we continue our competition! ;)
Nice w-end and thanks for visiting my gallery!

Hello Maciek

You managed well your camera to obtain
such great details of the white snow,
i love the tight framing, TFS


Hi Maciej,

The subject is well framed. The pointy of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the branches covered with frost. The reflection of the light on the snow is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Ciao Maciej. Just intrigant. Not excellent DOF but difficult condition as I can see.


hello Maciej,
Very good macro,fine compozition and colors,and good background and lighting.
Best regards

Hallo Maciej.
Idealny pomysl ale bardzo trudny do wykonania.Praca z bialym kolorem w fotografice jest niesamowicie trudna.Glebia ostrosci w bialym kolorze nawet w dobrze wybranej nie zawsze odzwierciedla to co chcesz pokazac.Podsumowujac bardzo,bardzo trudny temat.
Podoba mi sie ze w tym kierunku prubujesz isc.Pozdrawiam Siggi

Hi Maciej,a very good and different capture but not the top of sharpness as usual,especially in the below part,low contrast whit the background too.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano.

Hi Maciej,
This is a wonderful photo. Such art will not happen in my equator zone. You are having a long trek and tfs beautiful sights with us.

Winter art and artistic presentation from you Maciej! Excellent composition, fantastic lighting and very good sharpness.

What a simple and majestic image Maciej! Lovely bloom of shiny sparkling cold ice enveloped the tiny plant! Fantastic!
I couldn't resist to present you another version with more contrast and reduced brightness. Hope you like it Maciej! Have a great week MF!

Hello Maciej,
WHat a wonderful find and so well captured! I like the framing and the fine details that stand out against the softly coloured background. Well done!
Tfs and best regards, Ulla

Hello Maciej,
A good macro image with excellent focus and beautiful composition. Also in my country this winter is very cold and over the night we expect less than -23 degrees Celsius.

Hello Maciek, what a really creative and artistic image. It takes a special eye to see this among all the other things in nature all around. It is white on white which is special. Tfs,

HI Maciej,
Really nice image with great POV but I feel that its a bit too bright to be able to see the ice work clearly. I am posting a workshop of this image. Nothing fancy just a bit of adjustment with Irfanview. Hope you will like it.
