I think i did a passion for star effect and every time I try to shoot the sun :) Here I liked the play of the light and shadows on the white snow,and an opportunity for me to try a combination in B&W.......

An excellent winter shot, lovely B&W image. Wonderful atmosphere with snow, shadows and the sun rays. Well done...
mesutilgim (82206) 2007-11-27 4:35
Hi dear Anellise,
Other's should not get this ; absolutely the best one I've seen up to now, from your TE meeting.
Wonderfull b&w with perfect light management, good play of light and shadow.
Great graphical effect. As a "lover" of b&w I've added it to my favorites.
TFS and have a wonderfull day
gokanlam (6605) 2007-11-27 4:41
It looks perfect! You have created nice composition with all details.. I like the surface of the snow and footprints on it.. And the shadows of the benches are perfect also..

ti-a ieshit fain... tot caut sa zic ceva rau da nu gasesc! las pe altadata atunci.

Hi Anellise, another beautiful shot of this impressive winter scene, the house really adds atmosfere well done, I really enjoyed admiring this view, good composition, position of view and exposure, well done, thanks for sharing it with us, regards, Joao Salas
MarcT (20964) 2007-11-27 5:18
Another magic view you are bringing to us. This shining star is wonderful and you managed the snow almost like a golden sand sheet...
A favorite to me, for sure.
IgorDeleze (585) 2007-11-27 5:21
Fantastic BW picture. The star is perfect and the big shadows give a nice atmospher!
A great one.
macondo (18595) 2007-11-27 5:27
Stunning shot, Anellise.
The strong contrast, the texture of the snow from your low viewpoint, and the great fence and its shadow, make this a beauty. Certainly my favourite for this week, so far. I wonder if you used a filter, or is it mist that is filtering the sun? I can't see any improvement or real change in the WS version.
Flavia (10352) 2007-11-27 5:30
Fnatastic beautiful result! I've also done soe experiments with hight f to get star effect on the sun, but nothing got even nearthis result.
barni (15751) 2007-11-27 5:32
Quelle bonne idée d'avoir passé cette image en noir-blanc. L'effet du soleil n'en est que plus beau.
lilimih33 (9918) 2007-11-27 5:46
Foarte frumos rezultatul muncii tale...buna decizie pentru alb-negru!
Arata minunat efectul creat de lumina si umbre.
Merline (0) 2007-11-27 5:53
this is for me your best from Romania so far, really outstanding, the way you play with shadow and light, the low pov is a great choice as is the B/W conversion, the traces and the texture of the snow, even without the star, it would be a great job. Nice to see that you had a great time!
A hug from Michèle
brandstaetter (15915) 2007-11-27 5:56
Hi my friend,
this one is great !! Perfect, that you gave so much space to the snow and that you put the house to the upper margin. The kick comes from the fence and its shadow. B&W makes it more sophisticated and elegant. Great photo, great work !
Hugs :D Chris
snowfalken (1116) 2007-11-27 6:12
Frumos! Imi plac umbrele lungi si mai ales textura zapezii in prim plan. Interesant ca ai facut-o alb-negru! Acum stiu si ca diafragma de la obiectivul tau are 6 blades-uri. Aveti grija cand focalizati pe soare ca sa nu se arda senzorul! Merci!
stamatis (2561) 2007-11-27 6:31
beautifoul b&w photo.
best regards Stamatis.
Wahclellaspirit (3961) 2007-11-27 6:36
I like the deep shadows and the angle of view, also the hint of life with the footsteps. A good B/W...
doubay (2093) 2007-11-27 6:49
Brasov? Hey, isn’t this place located in the area where Dracula comes from?
Very artistic, impressive back light shot! Technically it must be rather difficult to achieve such a result. The strong contrast and shadows look fantastic.
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-11-27 8:07
that's a stunning photo!
the shape of the star with the good effect and well placed!
good contrasty bw, here the fence is also nice in the frame.
Lots of details in the snow.
well done on this one ;o)
japiey (10163) 2007-11-27 9:21
Once in life these visions reach dreams...
BEAUTIFULL...and favourite in me...in my heart...
carper (96) 2007-11-27 9:34
it's not easy Anellise
againe the ful sun light to made a photo, you did do it very well with a fine composition and a good quality, fine photojob, have a nice evening
johannes68 (3469) 2007-11-27 9:36
This one is simply perfect, it was a great idea to make it in B&W, and I really don´t find any other words for it, except that it´s - perfect!!!
anducina (8407) 2007-11-27 9:49
Excelent peisaj b&w, compozitia, incadrarea si mai ales lumina sunt extrem de reusite.
Toate cele bune !
Signal-Womb (13048) 2007-11-27 9:59
Love the play of light and diagonal composition on this Anellise. The conversion to B&W works wonderfully well. This is very nice indeed. Great work.
jonathan_hart (21274) 2007-11-27 10:26
excellent exposure, good looking composition, and the star effect... how you obtain it ? it's because of a filter, i suppose
nemesiss (2979) 2007-11-27 10:55
Excelenta imagine !
Cu riscuri dar au meritat.
Felicitarile mele, Iulian
Jeppo (17639) 2007-11-27 11:55
good B+W Choice. I like those shaped shadows on the snow!
tehanu_f (6896) 2007-11-27 12:18
This is just perfect Anellise. B/W is a great choice and the star effect definitely adds a magical touch to the scene. I love it!
veve (4189) 2007-11-27 12:40
Felicitari pentru aceasta imagine B&W!
bwiti (402) 2007-11-27 12:57
"for me to try a combination in B&W"... Perfectly made a success combination ! I like your use of the wide angle, the sweet texture of the snow and these shadows which seem so threatening...
Cormac (26545) 2007-11-27 13:06
Wow! This is a really great shot! The low angle of the sun enables us to see the reflection off the ice crystals in the snow, giving this a sparkling feeling. The shadow of the fence is wonderful too, and very unusual. Excellent example of using lighting to your advantage!
rigoletto (34251) 2007-11-27 13:57
Counter light, deep shadows, starred sun...
Perfect play with light and shade, great low exposure. The traces of feet on the crispy snow, looong shadow of the fence and the interesting B&W application make this one a very beautiful post.
Did you sleep in those huts? Was it not freezing? OWWW...
Iuli (838) 2007-11-27 14:04
I don't know why you squeezed the sun into that corner, but then... I'm not you. The result is great. All objects are gathered in the upper third part of the picture and the rest of it is practically empty. But the most drama in this picture happens in this bottom part. There's lot's of action down here. The shadows dropped on the snow by the fence elements are the most dramatic aspect of this foreground but the sand-like sparkle of the snow surface as well as the footprints and the slope going orthogonally to the shadow lines fill this area with action and the viewer has little chance of getting bored. The eye can actually rest a bit in the bottom right corner but that's far from actually getting bored.
The beautiful composition on top and the high drama in the foreground makes for a great photo. The black frame suits it well.
PS chiar daca nu-ti pasa
grigand (19469) 2007-11-27 14:05
A fantastic view, I like a lot this composition, details and light are perfect .. congratulation.
lasscor (7640) 2007-11-27 14:11
WONDERFUL b&w composition.
Wonderful pov, light, shadows, textures and sharpness.
xkolba (596) 2007-11-27 14:21
I see many perfect new pictures in your gallery. This winter B&W is excellent also! Beautiful sun in f/16 and great shadows. I like this composition very much!
danyy (0) 2007-11-27 15:19
une technique très afinée pour se permettre ce contre jour audacieux. Pas de doutes que ce sont les jeux d'ombres et de lumière dans la neige qui font la vedette ici.
Une photo parfaitement exposée et très nette.
stellar_girl (302) 2007-11-27 15:54
What can I say... perfect BW photo! Great light and contrast with many details and nice shadows on the gtillering snow. The silhouettee of the tress in the background and the star effect of the sun fully complete the whole image. Great job!
pasternak (15181) 2007-11-28 0:55
It was a wise decision to convert it to BW to tame the light, Anes, and this resulted in a great shot, which together with nice strong contrasts features a lovely composition and all together creates a fairy-tale impression of the place... Compliments for this one, in fact one of your best so far, a true photography!!!
teutza (10590) 2007-11-28 1:34
yelloo...si eu am ceva cu stelutzele de ceva vreme..si am o poza exact k asta:)) nu m-am gandit s-o fac alb negru dar uite ce bine arata:)
delkoo (68) 2007-11-28 2:16
I never get tired of seeing shots from this amazing place, especially when they're as well taken as this.
your b&w is stunning, you won your challenge to take picture against the sun.
faubry (35405) 2007-11-28 3:21
wowwwwwwwwww, Ane lise, superba poze cu joc de umbre si lumina pe zapada....frumoasa loc ... bravo ptr tine,
cund te duc la Islanda???
molla (7127) 2007-11-28 5:24
At Time, our pictures couldn't be more separated then they are. One crispy sharp cold in a dark but blending winterlandscape where the blistering snow gives it a yellow/blue mood in black and white. and the other a desolated autumn warm beach in warm but restricted colorscheme.
I like your picture that has a kind of cineastic expression over it , where the wooden fence has a slight agressive shape that turns agaist you.
AiresSantos (56155) 2007-11-28 5:26
Wonderful photojob in black and white.
Amazing light and POV.
I love it and goes to my favorites
Thanks and cheers
Floydian (30970) 2007-11-28 5:29
Excellent how you controled the light here and the b&w is really good. The glittering light over the snowfield is wonderful just as those long shadows over the snow. Really a wonderful composition. Seems you had not only a great time but also time to make very good pictures.
Saw some photo's from you in different workshops. How can you do serious photography with a sigaret in your hand? ;-)))
PierreMorel (1172) 2007-11-28 7:13
You made there a beautiful capture, well composed and with a perfect exposure to keep contrast and shadows on the snow.
photographer123 (6246) 2007-11-28 8:08
very good use of lights..composition is too good..pattern of the shadow fill the space very well...A++.....subir
donluicu (24722) 2007-11-28 10:08
nice framing, excellent play with the shadows and lights
Standa (1877) 2007-11-28 12:08
wonderful winter mood is in your perfect shot. Excellent composition, well positioned sun and tracks in snow. I like it!
abulafia (4900) 2007-11-28 14:06
This is really beautiful Anes
The harsh light straight into the camera makes very good silhouettes and shadows and i also like the many details, specially in the foreground where we can almost count the pores in the snow:)
bostankorkulugu (42002) 2007-11-28 17:09
oh this one is really nice anes... the fence and the shadows are really cool... i feel like eating snow now looking at this shot...
marietom (34607) 2007-11-29 0:29
Une superbe image, avec un jeu d'ombres fort bien maitrisé ! Magnifique, bravo !
jaywalker (16095) 2007-11-29 5:11
Hi Anellise, This is a photo that stands-out, the quality is there for all to see, the light & shadows are amazing, the overall composition is excellent, I thought you had tilted the photo, however I looked again & realised your on a hill, that works wonderfully well, B/W the perfect medium here, kind regards Wilson.
asival (5305) 2007-11-29 5:25
It is so amazing how you manage to capture such a beautiful light everytime... it's just a supeb frame with very good exposure
sayan (2617) 2007-11-29 7:21
A brilliantly crafted image. The b/w does wonder here. Awesome capture. The shadows are great
Didier38 (710) 2007-12-01 2:33
J'aime bien cette ambiance et les traces dans la neige vont très bien au premier plan je trouve.
ninaL (21348) 2007-12-01 4:01
The same place as the last of your sister !!!
Incredible light and perfect composition.
I am in love for this one.
Best regards. Grazyna.
aralda (1240) 2007-12-01 12:05
O fotografie de expozitie. Ai elemente diverse (gard, umbre, efectul de stea, casa, capita, copacii, urmele din zapada) si totusi compozitia nu e "cluttered", ci dimpotriva. E reusita si din punct de vedere tonal.
gary91 (15348) 2007-12-02 1:39
Browsing through TE galleries, I just found your stuning picture... What a wonderful image you give us here !
THe light is perfetly managed and the composition of this play of shadows and lights is gorgeous. Really a great work, congratulations ;-)
Have a nice sunday,
Best regards, Christian
corsicastorm (3224) 2007-12-02 2:08

A stunning One Anellise !
Very good post production, and very very nice composition.
BoisBarb (10369) 2007-12-18 13:55
Tout simplement superbe!
sadeik (3268) 2007-12-26 11:00
Havn't been this way for a while, By heck your photos have vastly improved from when you started and quite nice to see you use black and white so well.
This is a real corker of a shot, well framed, excellant prospective and beautiful tones
I suppose now its done with Xmas and now looking forward to a Happy New Year best wishs and keep taking those superb black and whites
AlbGirl (0) 2008-01-03 7:17
People usually leave the sun at his original colors :) but making it B&W in this shot makes it better since the snow is white. I love the idea... Very nice!
ricard (653) 2008-02-20 15:25
One of the best B&W pictures of your gallery.
Excellent light, good contrast and nice texture of the snow.
ricochet (9696) 2008-03-06 15:03
A really wonderful shot and great tones, i love it, super bravo
Modos (968) 2009-08-26 8:05
Fantastic photo, the B&W was a great choice!
MLINES (12516) 2009-10-10 14:08
Hi Anellise, A strong B&W which eminates coolness with just a glance. The shadows and footprints are the elements which jump out from this wintery image. TFS. Murray.
xenia_p (100) 2009-12-21 10:17
the b&w stresses the contrast between the light and the shadow. The composition is just perfect. Astonishing is the shape of the sun and the footsteps on the snow.
Thanks for sharing.
Ricx (13495) 2010-02-11 11:59
Hi Anellise, Thanks for sharing this most amazing image shot directly into the sun.. The shadows are fantastic.. Its just a great image that I like. Rich
