A lovely place... makes me think of... Gone With The Wind under the snow. Romantic, then.

Nice and fluffy white. I like the long shadows contrasting the white of the snow.

The HDR is starting to be your signature which isn't a bad thing. I'd like though to see a before and after on the b&w if you do another.. Your b&w's have been so crisp. Not sure you need to trick them :)

@Self-Indulgence: I'm actually doing that on an upcoming color photo. :-)

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

It would be nice if the HDR was not so overdone but a super composition.

I'm beginning to really enjoy winter B&W scenes. Another lovely image.

Fantastic b&w!! There's something about the tire tracks included in the foreground that I like quite a bit :)

Love the processing here! When I saw your image from yesterday, I thought it was some infrared filter before I read you comment about how you were doing HDR. It's a great photo first and foremost but I do like the different effect of HDR in b&w.

Superb. You have a great balance with the HDR which often tends to be over the top somehow. You and Ralph treats HDR in a great way!
