[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After 10 days of snow, it sure is nice to see the sun shine, it gives a whole new look to the snow on the trees. I took the photo through our office window, cold outside! :) Spring is still a long ways away but the snow on the branches made me think of apple blossoms!

Hi Donna,
A lovely winter shot. The snow laden trees look great against the white BG.

Hello Donna

Very elegant and beautiful.
The blue of the sky is super,and I really like how you framed the shot.The title is well chosen.
Nicely done.



Hi Donna,
I love the frame :)
Beautiful snow you have, while we are spending time with MR.Sun
The branches that are out of the frame just completes the look!

Hello neighbor , the thumbnail looked promising , the large version even more, fantastic realisation Donna , a touch on the artistic side , i am particularly fond of the light blue sky illuminating the middle portion of the scene , kind of cute really, sharpness and clarity are strong points of this photograph, i like it,

HI Donna
The composition and the pp makes this a very elegant and well done shot.

Also originally from Vt and now in Canada. I see you also have an Xti. Give yourself a gift and get a remote control, its only about $15 or so. Its a must that you will really enjoy using.

Bonsoir Donna
Très jolie photo!!!
J'aime la sobriété de cette prise de vue...beauté sobre!!!
Belle présentation

Oh how beautiful Donna! Excellent shot, very pretty like a Christmas Card! I love how you dropped the branch over the frame!

Hi Donna,
Well presented winter mood, skilfully excecuted pp work. I loved off centre position of branches and soft tones...
My compliments...

Artistic and romantic photo, wonderful composition and beautiful subject

Hi Donna,
Soft colours and light. Just a littel too noisy in the sky (see WS), but a nice sharp composition, nicely framed.
Best regards

Hi Donna,
I love the softness of this photo by its color. The baby blue in the sky is really wonderful.
The clean and simple composition made for a very artistic composition and your play with the frame made that feel even stronger. As Jean mentioned, a bit too much noise in the sky.

This looks like a postcard! Nice colours as well
in the background.



Great photo. Very sferish with beautiful colours. I like the frame around.

Hello Donna,a lovely presentation of the snow laden branches.I like the 'out of frame' touch and the framing.
I can see why it reminds you of apple blossom.
Tfs, regards Jean.

i love when branches are covered by snow but still visible !
the hue of the BG are nice
the fact that some branches are out of the frame create a 3D feeling
