    I like it. The composition of the path in the image is perfect.

    My advice is be prepaired. When we get snow I make sure we have lots of Bailey's Irish Cream to put in the hot chocolat. We needed in Calgary this weekend.

    I like this photo. Good composition, nice angle on the pathway.

    I'm hoping we can help you by critiquing your photos but not this one. Good composition, good exposure, good post processing. I'd just be happy with it if I were you

    I agree the composition is very good indeed. The leading line of the path and the person ... all very well used.

    What I can't quite figure out is if this has been processed to be an image (no longer a pure photo due to processing filters etc) or it has been sharpened too much. I can see what appear to be sharpening artifacts in the branches and around the person.

    I don't agree that the exposure was good though. It appears to be a bit overexposed I think.

    My conclusion, from what I can see here, is that the photo wasn't quite what you'd hoped so you applied a filter/processing to save it and came up with a nice image.

    Thanks for all the comments all, I appreciate it.

    Mad Aussie, I struggled with the same thing before posting. Wondering if the image was "off" a bit. I was processing the photo to give a feeling and maybe I missed it a bit.

    Here is another try.

    I think that's a much nicer version penodr. This has better tonal range. The whites are a bit grey but then on a dark snowy day I reckon that's probably about right anyhow
