This is one of the most beautiful shots I have ever seen. It was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by me. I love the snow, and ice, which makes me see this as a winter paradise. The tree truly makes the shot, as well as the lighting and the technique used. By far this is a good original shot, I think that there is not much I could say that would make this better. Over all the pictures that I have seen, truly this one has the impact of winter and how a picture should be taken. Good job, and it was great.
What do you think?

A lovely and striking shot. Just one question: I'm a non-photographer, but wonder if you used some kind of filter for that all blue effect, or did Nature luckily provide you with all you needed in the way of colouring?

When doing outdoor photography we usually see tiny details in the photo which could be better, but having said that I think that this is the closest to a "perfect" photo of a frost covered tree that I've ever seen!

Turn the picture upside down and itt will be the veins of the lungs.

"I breath the cold air in, let it embrace my lungs and I feel the ice deep inside me."

I love this picture by the way, it's really really beautiful and somehow chilling. :) (Smile)

This has great emotional impact for me. In a positive way. Just wish I'd found it before I used another Winter scene for our company's e-Christmas card. Outstanding shot. Thanks.

Excellent shot. Beautiful, nearly monochromatic colors. They really make you feel the cold. Nice central perspective. It even seems like some of those branches try to grab you and pull you into the image. Cropping the tree at the upper edge adds to this effect and concentrates the view on this beautiful snow crust ...
What I do not like is the asymmetry of the tree in the lower third of the picture as there are far more branches and twigs on the right side. Although I have to admit that this covers the right-shift of the illumination in the background.

A minor technical remark: In the sky at the lower right side of the image there re some dark spots which I would have removed.
And thank you for using only a small watermark which does not disturb from the image :-)
