A sunny winter day is a mixture of white, blue and black colors. The blue is the snow, as it's lit by the skies.
On the picture is a corner of the pool between the locks by the Gorky Hydropower Plant. It is located on the Volga river (the longest river in Europe) just 60 km upstream from Nyzhni Novgorod. The shot is made from the high (left) bank of the Volga river, at the verge of the nothern suburb (the 4th settlement) of the Gorodets city. Winter fishing is a popular pastime there and this is what the little black spot on the right is trying to do.

Nice snow landscape with good perspective, the constrasts are good and the trees fill the white space on the right. I like also the traces in the snow. Just one remark, the bottom of the tree is cut, it would be better to see the entire tree. I am happy to see pictures of this region of Nijni-Novgorod because my little boy is born in this town. We adopted him 3 years ago when he was 2 years old.

La foto es buy bonita y está bien expuesta, pero me hubiese gustado más si se viese más camino en la parte inferior y, consecuentemente, algo más de árbol, siempre, claro está, conservando la perspectiva diagonal. La curva del camino también la encuentro demasiado cortada.
Si puedes repetirla, intenta hacerla como te digo a ver si te gusta más.
