This is wonderful. At first I thought it was a traditional painting, then I thought, surely, it must be digital, and then, even after discovering the category was "photography", I wondered if it was perhaps a photograph of a miniature model.

The depth of field and focus is fabulous--it played so many tricks on my eyes, right from the get-go. To enable the snow to look like brushstrokes, the branches to look like they could belong on the most delicate and beautiful miniature set in existence... here is the work of a master photographer, truly applying his skill and art. Bravo!

I would love this framed on my wall in a large enough size to disappear into it

Looks a little bit surreal with those branches and trees on the foreground and such a focus on a particular tree a little bit in the background. Really nice depth...

At first I was like "Is this a photo?!" It almost looks like a painting: love the mood you create with that effect. ^^
