This is probably the finest work I've ever had the pleasure of critiquing.

The light shining through the trees is just marvelous. The scene is amazingly serene, and peaceful. The composition is excellent. The fresh snow on the still red-leafed trees is an amazing sight to see.

I commend you on the incredibly clean processing job with absolutely no artifacts of any kind. I'd love to know more details about the processing.

Maybe the only thing that just may make this better is a slightly narrower crop, but I'm not sure about that.

Superb photo - a true masterpiece, in my opinion.

Alright I have never done a critique before, so lets see how this goes.

This photographs screams the time of the year, the fine line between Autumn, and Winter. And oh what those moments can feel like. Well you captured that moment pretty well. With the I am assuming morning sunlight. As it creeps though the trees, and spills all over the road and ground. It feels very warm and inviting.

The transition from cold to warm, cold on the left, and warm on the right. Is very nice addition, makes it feel like there are two sides to this picture. Left side is Winter saying hello. And the right side is Autumn saying goodbye for the year.

Normally I hate when things are in the middle of the picture. But this works, somehow, it works. I'm not sure how, maybe its the trees on the right creeping into the left side. I may never find out, and it doesn't matter, it just works.

The combination of the two seasons, the light spilling into it, and the overall feel. Make this a really strong photograph.

Absolutely beautiful. You're so lucky to have seen snow this winter. Here we had been lucky if a single snowflake fell to the ground, but even then it did not stay long. Maybe next year will be better. Anyway, you were able to capture a wonderful, magical moment. I love how the light shines through the trees and bathes everything into a strong light. A really well done photo.

Thank you very much for your lovely words! :aww:
The winter here was as bad as yours, though... the photo was taken back in 2010 when we had the last "real" winter here, but edited now to bring back some real winter memories. ;) :snowflake:

It's kind of comforting to know that we here in the north of Germany are not the only ones suffering from the lack of snow. The last time I was able to take photos of snow was two years ago. I remember that well because I've just moved near Hamburg and I've taken some photos of the building inside the town covered in snow. Sadly that's all in the past now. *sighs*
