Fascinating scene. I do think focusing on the dead tree/branches right of center would make for a stronger composition; I find the left-hand side of the current frame distracting.

Dave,the dead tree was my intended subject in this image so are you saying crop some of the bottom and the left? Thanks for looking.

I'd say an 8x10, eliminating that left side. FWIW. YMMV.

Thanks Bill. I found the skull nearby and decided to set it here for this shot. Too good to pass up!

Nice one, Matt.


By the way, Edward Weston also moved a skull to make a better photo.

FWIW = "For what it's worth."
YMMV = "Your mileage may vary."

I think Dave was meaning to say his suggestions are just that, not edicts.

Sorry, been away for a while. Glad Eric filled in with the definitions. I like your most recent composition, personally much better because in my humble opinion (IMHO), the remnants of the dead tree are more emphasized. I know the abbreviations can be obscure some times, but just type them into your browser and you'll find a definition that works.

I have processed this two different ways and am asking for C&C. I like the softer/matted process. What I wanted to capture and emphasize was the contrast between the softness of the snow and the sharpness of the bark and needles.   Thanks, -t
