[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In GrandIsle Vermont very close to the road looking somewhat lopsided from the frozen ground, this looked like it was a welcome center for a summer camp.

Only thing besides this hut were the tracks in the snow no doubt caused by the foxes as on that Island
they do have a road sign with caution to the foxes.

Just desaturated than played with the levels.

Hi Dot!
Wonderful black and white the winter shot!
Nice light and good sharpness.

Hi, Dot. Lovely Dot and the thing which really attracts me is the calligraphy of the tress and shadows on the snowy roof. Wonderful, triangular shape with texture and good metering. Cheers and TFS.

Beautiful B&W composition, dear Dot.
Nice POV and great contrast.
Fine presentation. Congratulations and TFS!

Best regards,

Bonsoir Dot,
Tout simplement magnifique!
Un noir et blanc de grande qualité pour cette charmante composition. La lumière projetant de grandes ombres sur le toit de ce chalet donne un impact puissant à l'image. Vraiment très réussi! Annie

Excellent sharp, bright and punchy shot here, Dot.
The B&W conversion works well here giving a real strong contrast.
Perfect light which has been perfectly controlled.

Hi Dot,

That's different, a log cabin with a teepee on top. B&W was a good choice, this looks like it could have existed in colonial days. I'm just wondering if it would be better to crop the plowed snow from the bottom? It would be close to the structure, but a little cloning could expand the foreground a bit.

Warm regards,

Bonjour Dot,
Belle prise de vue de cette vielle architecture en bois rond de ce teepee indien ,belle présentation et composition ,, beau contraste et détail .
excellent cliché

Hi Dot,
A captivating black and white
composition. The bright FG and
the dark BG in perfect contrast.
The shades and the shadows of the
trees on the teppe makes it even
more attractive. Good sharpness.
Enjoy your week.

Hello Dot! Amazing teepee, amazing wooden architecture. Excellent winter scenery. Nice snow. Very sophisticated BW work. Perfect sharpness. Well done!

Hi Dot,
Sharp image and good lightning condition.
Its a fairy tale image..:

Hello Dot!

Very cool picture from snowy weather and winters. Very well selected scenery with beautiful light conditions. The combination of the objects in view giving lovely look to the shot. Great details and sharpness.
I wonder how would it look if shot in color.

TFS, indeed good POV.

dear Dot,
like a strange pyramid in snow,
mystic shining white triangle in the dark winter forest,
a wonderful picture in this season,
thank you,

Hello Dot,
I shall have to look for this next time I wander up that way..:o) I do like the Black and White, Good use of light and shadow. TFS

Bonjour Dot.
J’aime bien la lumière sombre désaturée donne son plus belle effet a cette photo.
Une belle architecture de rondin qui conserve bien la chaleur.
Bonne journée.

Bonjour Dot,

Charmante image d'une construction originale. La version donne un rendu nocturne intéressant même si l'on considère que tu as pris cette image at 11h du matin (à moins que l'heure de ton appareil soit mal réglé). Belle netteté et belle composition. Compliments.


Wow Dot this is amazing! Love the light and shadows plus the impeccable exposure. World class mono image.

Ciao Dot

This is an extraordinarily beautiful place,
may be typical for the area.
Thank you, the picture is a poem.
Sharpness and clarity are superb,
wonderful light and color, nice composition.
Lovely to look.

Have a nice weekend,
