An interesting winter image. The trees created a great visual effect here. Well seen and executed work. TFS.

Congratulations on an excellent composition. The forest looks very neat in this light and this season. The vertical accent created by the trees is nicely opposed by the diagonal formed by the ridge of the hillside behind the trees. The lonely skier is a perfect and necessary addition.

Excellent paysage d’hiver, bien encadré et bien joué dans les plus belles couleurs de l’hiver, une image bien fait.!

Great perspective. Very good use of pale colors. I've definately enthused the depth of the scene too. the walking lonely man add a human presence in this image.
Very very good job.

An image that conveys well the winter mood, and the beauty of cross country sky in solitude.

Hello Pentti - Yo have captured a lovely image of the forest, I like the layers of vertical tree trunks very much. The lone skier helps to convey the size and scale of the woodland and the darkly clad figure adds a good contrast to the softer natural colours. Best regards rosemary

Impressionant cette succession de tronc d'arbre bien serré.
bel effet visuel et le skieur au milieu donne une bonne idée des dimensions de cette forêt.

A lovely shot which becomes almost cubist. The skier makes a nice focal point.
