An icy day in Bucharest National Park.
I was walking in the park when Isabela called and invited me to a spontanious meeting.
Firstly I was amazed by Isabelas talent of putting together a meeting at such short notice. Secondly, thanks to her I met four other TE members.
For this reason I have dedicated this photo to all these special people: Isa, Anes, Teo, Johannes and Iulian.
The picture in WS is also for them.

As spune ca este o imagine oarecum in contrast cu ultimele
poze postate de tine,dar o imagine pe care eu o prefer.Are o
atmosfera aparte si plina de elemente fara de care nu ar fi
atat de interesanta,cum ar fi pasarile,reflexile,podul,oamenii,

Very nice and tranquil scene, wonderfully framed. B&w treatment serves it very well. For my taste bluring of the branches at the top of the frame would not have been necessary, but that's just my personal view. I still like this image very much.
maglex (1980) 2008-01-27 10:34
A very nice soft touch here, very good capture.
Thanks for sharing...

Hallo Liliana. Dies ist ein eigenartig faszinierendes Photo. Sehr klar komponiert, sehr ästhetisch. Licht, Grauwerte und Kontraste sind perfekt. Vor allem aber ist das Photo SCHÖN. viele Grüße, Wolfgang.

Superbe N&B. toute la game de gris est présente et de bonne qualitée.Le climat hivernal est bien rendu et le cadrage sur ce pont est bien fait.

j'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qui se dégage de ta photo, c'est un endroit idyllique et ce petit pont et cette rivière gelée c'est superbe
beaucoup de romantisme se dégage de cette photo (à mon avis)
limule (4176) 2008-01-27 13:14
This is so beautiful. very nice picture although the frame is not adapted to my opinion. It attract too much attention. TFS. Geraldine

mersi mult pentru dedicatie!!! Ma bucur mult, sa stii, pentru ca poza ta e pur si simplu fantastic!!! E atat de frumos ca m-ai lasat fara cuvinte... Si titlu potriveste perfect, pare sa fie de o alta lume. Ai facut arta aici, si nu pentru prima data!
Te pup, Johannes
daddo (22664) 2008-01-27 14:07
Hi Liliana. This is photography taken to the realm of Art where creativity involves a distortion of what the eye can see.I suppose various lenses do that and programmes like Photoshop can make one very creative.The picture resembles a pencil or charcoal drawing, a poetic, subtle and inspired creation. Beautiful mood, shapes and lines. Regards. Klaudio.
Paolo (41222) 2008-01-27 14:18
Hi Liliana, fantastic one!
the deep work on the details with a strong soft contrast and a great vie on a magic lake!
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-01-27 15:28
Two beautiful pictures you have here. The main post is truly a winter mood and the composition is superb as it is the B&W conversion. Well done.
sam_wald (720) 2008-01-27 16:34
Wow! very interesting editing!
spring (70) 2008-01-27 17:08

Bonsoir, mon amie Liliana,
Dans la photographie, il s'établit comme un pont mystérieux entre l'âme des personnages et celle du spectateur.
Ici, vous avez su jouer habilement entre peinture et photographie. J'aime les photos qui ont une âme.
faubry (35405) 2008-01-28 1:36
wow, superba poze de la tine... imi place mult, ingetat,pod, copac, oamen..... buna iarna atmosfera.bravo
ekinokswest (2994) 2008-01-28 1:42
what a beautiful scenery everything looks very balanced here what you have done is correct leaving the bridge right in the middle despite the cold such a decent capture of the moment
matt_moi (318) 2008-01-28 2:14
What a quiet in this scene. And a really well composed picture !
r021251 (3917) 2008-01-28 3:30
What a good job , super idea and the conception is fabulous
Bravo j'aime cette image
MarcT (20964) 2008-01-28 4:35
das ist ein wunderschones Bild.
As you said, it's kind of leaving the reality.
So, your title, is perfectly chosen.
anes_lc (14968) 2008-01-28 5:18
ce dragut din partea ta draga :) o dedicatie asa frumoasa ....ce poza reusita ...cum ai reusit asa minunatie?
oanna (1202) 2008-01-28 6:56
salut...intr-adevar la limita realului.dar nu era nevoie de rama,cam distrage atentia.
Dyerco (10185) 2008-01-28 7:14
You have captured a magical moment in time. I like your PP. Very creative. Nicely composed to get the people on the bridge and the birds in the FG.
sebinho342 (19317) 2008-01-28 8:59
Brilliant picture, full of your feeling and artistical approach. I do like here the softness of the place, the user of lines of power and the result of this BW. Strange it has still no green star but i guess that will come with time.
jonathan_hart (21274) 2008-01-28 10:06
very nice composition, but why did you blured on the top ? like in a dream effect is better ? well it's your choice, however a beautiful picture
Sanderson-Brown (6) 2008-01-28 11:25
a wonderful shot, i wouldnt have guessed it to be in B/W. Such a cold winter scene. something makes me feel sorry about the ducks though, being in such cold water, but thats life :D
Its so dreamy this shot, well framed!
Thanks for sharing
mikeo (12129) 2008-01-28 13:15
One main question - why this shot looks so amazing?:) This is so cool, so smooth trees in backround, wonderful composition! And one thing more - congratulations for this incredible winter - in Poland we saw snow too - about one day:)
melmcree (18) 2008-01-28 13:50
In your bio it says postcards influenced your passion for photography and to me this photo is a perfect postcard. This photo drips with romance. Your composition is excellent with the placement of the bridge but the extra elements of the birds on the water and the people walking over the bridge make this shot stand out. I love the blur in the top portion it creates a bit of mystery which helps enhance the romantic mood.
I'd say this has the potential to be a poster to be sold all over the world. One of my favorite pictures from TE I have seen.
Signal-Womb (13048) 2008-01-28 15:11
Hi Liliana, very much a dream like scene. Your compostion sits very well and the B&W treatment enchances the mood. very well done.
atlantida (2323) 2008-01-28 15:25
Yes I wanna leave reality and be on a place like that for a while where beauty it the primary notice. I love the magic felt through the photo, I love photos that make me feel, doesn't matter how, just to make me feel something, anything. U have quite an eye Liliana to capture art in a special way.
I'm sorry I don't bump into your gallery more often:)
Couple of seconds after: Oh my gosh, I see u gave me a comment on one of my lake photos at the same time, that's incredible!!! This has never happened to me before and I dont want u to think that I gave u a comment only because u did to me. I told u your photo is magical:))
adores (34408) 2008-01-28 16:04
Beautiful shot!Seems taken from a tale. I like the ducks in foreground and that little bridge with people crossing, B&W, the reflection, the blurred effect. It's really very good!
macondo (18551) 2008-01-28 19:21
A very stunning image, well done in B/w, Liliana. It's other-worldly and has such a tranquility abou it. I love the water and the birds. I'm not so keen on the blurred upper part, and perhaps the snow is over-exposed, but the atmosphere is remarkable, and the way it plays with one's imagination and memory.
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2008-01-29 1:17
Wow ... awesome B&W rendition. Superbly captured and composed. I can't fault this compo ... it is just perfect. Excellent work! tfs
Floydian (30970) 2008-01-29 3:11
Did i told you a long time ago that you were good?
No? Well okay...you are good...!!!! ;-)
Serious. It's your creativity what makes all these images, but to start with you need a good image and sure you have a big talent for that. It's always the light what brings them forward and most of them are made in a style which brings me back to my own work. I really like it, great mood, nice atmosphere and taken at the right moment with people on the bridge and the birds in front. Your border adds nice colour...the right colour for this.
Very good work....and keep them coming.
I like your new intro photo ;-)
Bjostad (306) 2008-01-29 12:10
Beautiful, serene scene. Good timing to show the birds and people, did you have to wait long to get them in nice locations? Nice cropping to show the tree at the right edge along with it;s reflection. And B&W looks to be a nice choice.
chrisnet (21088) 2008-01-29 13:25
Wonderful winter composition, I like this black and white scene very pretty and the cold atmosphere, excellent work.
Angelillo (9372) 2008-01-29 13:45
What a wonderful scene, like a dreamy world! The light has a magical touch, and the white snow and the misty atmosphere between the trees (fog?) are amazing. The couple is perfect in this shot, it creates even more interest! Thanks.
Morac (27533) 2008-01-29 13:45
Bravo pour cette superbe photo, ses teintes et son ambiance. J'aime beaucoup les différentes nuances de teintes.
Le B&W est très bien vu
DU TRES GRAND ART
omixlistilimni (3299) 2008-01-29 15:18
Marvellous magic landscape!! The reflections splendid!!
Norte (531) 2008-01-29 16:32
I like very much the soft feeling in this picture, underlined by the B&W.
You have also made a fine composition, the high position of the bridge is good. The birds and the people are important eyecatchers also in very good positions.
vincz (19099) 2008-01-30 0:51
Fabulous image. i love to be driven in a different reality that way. The people on the bridge, the birds, gets us back to true reality. An excellent compo. I love what you did here.
riclopes (35577) 2008-01-30 2:59
Wow, most amazing painting in b&w, Lili. The soft tones all over the image make me think I'm in a dream. The graphism from the trees and bridge is attractive and I like the presence of the people passing the bridge and the inclusion of the ducks in FG giving some depth. Beautiful WS, as well. Nice to know about your meeting. Isa is a good organizer to join people from around the world ;-)
cam (9041) 2008-01-30 3:28
The image is strong, well thought and waiting for the people to be on the bridge was a good idea as it gives a vertical line, competing with the trees.
The overexposition creates a dreamy world.
Tibo (1904) 2008-01-30 3:50
Like in another world. Soft motion in this snow landscape. Having a black and a white birds on the lake is a great plus to the composition. The 2 persons are like going to nowhere... interesting shot. Tibo
Pascale (10456) 2008-01-30 7:14
Comme un rêve !
Excellent N&B.Que dire sinon : magnifique ,j'aime beaucoup
Dans mes favorites
paololg (31448) 2008-01-30 10:38
I think that a more beautiful dedication you could not do to your friends. Stupendous image absolutely, a true lesson of B&W to all the photographers of TE.
yso (4146) 2008-01-30 10:39
Very beautiful winter scene, your composition is perfectly balanced with birds at foreground. Superbe !
Bluejeans (64247) 2008-01-30 11:59
Ola Liliana ,

What an impressive photo! I love the creativity of this shot as well as the beautiful atmosphere you have created with this photo! Excellent work, Liliana!
PS: How have I missed your beautiful photos! You have an amazing gallery!
mirarer (4751) 2008-01-30 13:20
Una foto absolutamente impresionante. Está claro que llego tarde para poder decir algo original. Simplemente añadir que has conseguido una atmósfera absolutamente mágica y muy, muy especial.
sothy81 (9546) 2008-01-30 17:25
Wow this is a really nice one Lili. I really like the soft effect here. A very moody one. The most dramatic photo I have seen lately. Well done. Sothy
zeca (19762) 2008-01-30 19:16
Wonderful work! Artistic and well done! The dreamlike mood is fantastic. Very nice lights.
Well taken and a great pp.
photosettle (1520) 2008-01-30 20:45
Great feeling captured in this image. I also like it alot. I agree with a a previous poster about the blur being a bit too much in the trees. Kind of torn though because the softness helps keep the mood of the image sureal. Maybe using a different blur technique or maybe just a little less of what you did would suit my taiste better? Either way, it is a very effective image.
delkoo (68) 2008-01-31 0:28
slendid black and white, treatment is well executed and suits the subject well, The clarity of this image is excellent. The view is peaceful and beautiful .
jrj (34841) 2008-01-31 3:03
Some very heavy pp here Liliana - still you gor a most attractive result with the soft overall result, the simple details and the graphic bw setting. Nice result.
mortijo (12828) 2008-01-31 3:23
Excellent photo. The result obtained with Neatimage is absolutely great. Regards, John.
Silvio1953 (115945) 2008-01-31 5:54
Da favola Lili, più che una foto è un sogno proiettato sullo schermo del mio computer, bravissima, ciao Silvio
Cricri (101397) 2008-01-31 10:39
Vraiment une belle réussite cette image en N/B, bien composer avec une trés belle lumiére, bravo
Emile (20350) 2008-01-31 14:31
Another superb photo this time with a winter scene, your creativity is very good and you captured it at the right moment with a couple of people crossing the bridge, the reflection is also outstanding and the lighting is perfect. Your WS has a lovely composition, you did an excellent work.
paura (47166) 2008-01-31 14:56
Very very beautiful composition here. Under artistic view or under techcnical view, an excellent photo.
gary91 (15348) 2008-01-31 23:10
A great image !
The composition is excellent and and the placement of the ducks? and the bridge are very clever.
The conversion to b&w is well mastered and the nice effect at the top gives a fairy and unreal atmosphere.
Have a nice weekend.
Best regards, Christian
Miha2ou7 (5048) 2008-02-01 5:32
Absolutely gorgeous, everything from the composition, to the presentation and colors, reflections and the motive - and of course, there is always the wonderful ambient and message. A great one.
corniste (4278) 2008-02-01 8:01
This one of the best picture I've seen on TE. I just love this bridge.
Have a nice day
Nicou (116458) 2008-02-02 2:52
Une vria merveille, un compte de fée cet image, elle vien d'un autre monde, c'est mangigique, quel effet, doucuer, reflet, c'est vraiment mangique.
Bravo et amitiés
jmcl (14535) 2008-02-02 7:18
tremendous .. wow .. you know usually I am not much for frames but I love what this does against the black and white .. of course your use of focus is wondrous .. it is the white birds that top it off for me .. breathtaking and thoughtful fantasy ...
Rosa (0) 2008-02-02 7:48
Vous avez réalisé une photo NB superbe, les différents tons de gris sont bien marqués, le noir et le blanc très bien prononcé, je trouve ce paysage de toute beauté.
Très beaux reflets dans cette eau foncée et ce pont avec ces gens qui le traversent est magnifique.
vinicio (23415) 2008-02-02 14:07
What a great work Liliana, a true inspiring artwork, very very well done, compliments, I, and more people like me, are enthusiast of this your, wonderful indeed, I need to say more? It's really great.
norenastramus06 (1226) 2008-02-02 14:09
Wonderful winter composition and place.
Great shot and perspective.
UlfE (14639) 2008-02-03 1:43
Wow! What a magnificent shot. Fantastic dreamy feeling and a perfect composition. Very original You best post so far. Congratulations! Have a nice Sunday!
Charo (51210) 2008-02-03 2:39
Realmente una foto bellísima, casi mágica no parece natural, más bien un cuadro.
Excelente encuadre y efectos.
knerkowski (1472) 2008-02-03 12:15
Excellent composition. Very good blured effect.
You successfully chose B&W for this picture
I like it a lot
Thanks for sharing
crckt (7218) 2008-02-03 12:49
What a wonderful effect! The B/W looks really good. I would like to know what PP you did to get this. Love it.
batalay (34753) 2008-02-03 13:04
A superb note for an exquisite image! Magnificently composed, flawless exposed. The dark mat makes a compelling frame for the bridge in Bucharest national Park, and the engaging note makes completes a very good TE package. I see that you took it just 2-3 weeks ago. Isabela Sor, with her enthusiasm and charm could organize sunbathers from the French Riviera trek up to a bathing party in the Arctic. On August 20, 2008 I am going to be visiting Constanta on theCrystal Serenity, and she is going to come down from Bucharest, if possible. It would be fun to have a TE gathering, if there are others interested. Warm regards, and thanks for sharing this extraordinary, surrealistic image.
John_F_Kennedy (42042) 2008-02-04 0:53
This is a spectacular POV and expressive shot. Its an excellent composition and superb work.
PixelTerror (0) 2008-02-04 2:08
Nice winter image, the person on the bridge is well placed and the ducks on the water provide depth as well as the feeling something isdifferent with the water. The upper part of the image looks very strange, did you apply neat image or do something special there ?
Have a nice day JY
Paul65 (1402) 2008-02-04 2:54
A wonderful winter image. Good choise of B&W, I like winter photo in B&W, it's very natural.
Greetings from Poland.
dkeus31 (27735) 2008-02-04 3:36
a nice composition, I like the the softness created by the foggy atmosphere although you have lost many details in the upper trees.
veve (4189) 2008-02-04 12:22
Excelenta viziune,compozitie si prelucrare!
Toate cele bune,
gunbud (34066) 2008-02-04 12:39
Beautiful dream like image with the lovely gentle curve of this short bridge across the placid waters of the park pond. Marvelous use of light gives the water a beautiful silver glow and the the wavy muted background is outstanding. The b&w treat along with the very effective frame makes for a first rate image.
barrufeto_77 (28876) 2008-02-04 13:13
Woooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwww I missed this picture! What more can I say? Nothing.
eeedi (820) 2008-02-04 13:17
super poza. pare sa fie dintr-o poveste. parca e greu de crezut ca asa o poza se poate face in Bucuresti.
rosaline (0) 2008-02-04 14:28
Nice work and superb composition. Love the tonal range across the picture and the inclusion of the two people on the bridge for scale. Lovely atmosphere and light. Well done
codiac (1746) 2008-02-04 16:12
What a beautiful shot Lili, wonderful atmosphere and a really nice composition. I have to say you have had an amazing response from the trek earth members too and well deserved.
azaf1 (15929) 2008-02-05 1:32
Liliana good evening
A great omission on my behalf not to have seen this piece of art. Great winter capture and the extreme denoising has created this beautiful dream like effect
emilbo (22262) 2008-02-05 6:38
Très beau N/B tout en douceur. J'aime bien l'aspect brumeux de la photo, la superbe réflection et les canard dans l'étang. La passerelle est magnifique et les gens sur la promenade ajoute de la vie à la photo.
Royaldevon (26617) 2008-02-05 11:23
This photograph is real and unreal at the same time! The f/g is a winter's pond, the b/g is an artistic, fantasy of winter.
I like the merging of the two. It takes great artistry to join the two in a realistic way!
Many thanks for your feedback on 'Lancashire Moors'.
Cretense (68685) 2008-02-05 11:51
Oh, my god, what a beauty!!! You have really left me speechless, Lili! Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations!!!
OLF (4017) 2008-02-05 12:45
A very good shot of that place, pov is perfect, proportion, colors...a terrible icy atmosphere! I like also the bird in first plan to caught the eyes.
Very good job!
ocskaymarci (2652) 2008-02-05 13:55
Excellent winter photo from a superb POV.
I love the B&W and the partial softening. Graet composition too!
German74 (777) 2008-02-05 15:41
Hola Liliana, otra imagen espectacular, no hago más comentarios porque la foto no los amerita, excelente trabajo.
salvator (19102) 2008-02-05 23:35
Wonderful image, wonderful pov and superb b&w. The misty atmosphere, the sharpness and reflections, the soft blurry, misty top part is absolutely superb.
Best regards. Salvator.
tibervince (781) 2008-02-06 7:00
Fantastic picture... everything has been said I believe... it is indeed a splendid shot... bravo!
pastadog (13111) 2008-02-06 12:43
Very nice winter shot, Liliana, the B&W contributing to the mood. I also how the water surface looks, esp. in foreground. Maybe I'd have chosen a more classic color for the frame. Congratulations, Daniel
hay_kes (30436) 2008-02-07 0:19
What a superb winter view.Excellent POV and composition.TFS.
bigboroboy (1098) 2008-02-07 15:42
For me, this is one of the strongest shots in your gallery. Most of your shots are technically strong but this has a real artistic quality to it. Really wonderful. Thank you.
ifanik (21679) 2008-02-08 0:46
Very nice photo
Beautiful lighting and very good POV
danos (83081) 2008-02-08 1:13
stunning Winter shot with excellent placement of the bridge in the scene.The two passers add life in this snowy environment.The foggy atmosphere make the scenery dreamily.The birds add a nice stroke in the photo.Well done Liliana.
Have a nice weekend,Danos
giorgimer (34804) 2008-02-08 1:32

This is a little gem, Liliana. I love the way you positioned the subjects in the frame; it looks different with half trees. I also like the dreamy atmosphere a lot. Congrats.

Ai crescut mare,fata mosului si te-ai invatat sa povestesti frumos in imagini ceea ce TU ai vazut, nu ceea ce camera foto a vazut.Asta este un semn de maturitate artistica.
Sa ai drum bun pe mai departe si ai grija cum iti alegi prieteniile:)

Superb capture of winter scene and to include the birds on the still water. Really nice composition of the arch bridge.
Is your original in color?
cknara (556) 2008-02-10 5:39
It looks like someplace in Heaven..
Fantastic Work Liliana.
It would great if this earth is as peaceful as seen in this photo.

Tout a été dit, UNE MERVEILLE TOTALE!!

De l'art tout simplement.

A great artistic shot with a nice atmosphere.The grey/silver tones are fantastic and the composition is excellent.The frame you added is perfect.
denizler (4510) 2008-02-11 11:46
A very nice photo, a really winter atmospher ! Congrat.
Standa (1877) 2008-02-11 14:23
my first idea by looking at this dreamy picture was that it is an impression from Japan. Realy perfect work with composition, light and B/W colours.
pasternak (15177) 2008-02-13 7:09
A dream picture, Liliana, very good BW conversion plus this blurring effect at the top of the frame contributre to its success... great composition with the people on the bridge!
pipe (16) 2008-02-14 13:09
Crystal clear and crispy, I like it
marietom (34607) 2008-02-15 2:05
Quelle superbe image !!!
J'aime ce reflet, et cette atmosphère froide d'hiver. Bravo !
Bruno40 (6658) 2008-02-15 7:22
Amazing photo... great, great composition, and that softness at the background makes ths photo look like a beautiful watercolor paint (in B&W).
alti (828) 2008-02-15 8:43
Je rattrappe le temps perdu à m'emerveiller devant tes merveilles.
Merci pour ce moment d'evasion.
zumalife (185) 2008-02-18 14:07
This is great. It alomost looks like a painting. Well done in capturing the mist at the top of the shot.
ahaberal (6469) 2008-02-19 2:17
A very nice picture, a really winter atmospher ! Congratulation.
Greg1949 (9011) 2008-02-19 16:08
Wow, what a magnificent image, I am sure there is nothing I can add to the accolades but is the fog/blur at the top of the frame as it was shot or is it an effect from post production or maybe even a filter? What ere it will not detract from the photo, it is one of the best I have eve seen.
elkab (4951) 2008-02-20 7:46
Interesting and creative work!. I like misty light, romantic composition and soft texture of the photo.
Photo65Net (43120) 2008-02-24 10:00
Wow, amazing picture !
Soft tones, contrasts... All have been wrote about this one, and I join all the good critics !
danyy (0) 2008-02-26 23:25
le titre est bien choisi pour cette composition qui tient un peu de la féerie. Un post processing qui est bien visible mais non exagéré et qui conserve bien l'esprit de la scène réelle tout en l'embellissant.
Une très jolie scène b&w.
evanrizo (456) 2008-02-28 3:16
Woooooh and again wwwoooohhh,
You have here really a great marvelous result.
As a composition is superb also the clearness is excellent and at once the nice blur effect works fantastic here.
jimmj63 (2303) 2008-02-28 23:30
you are a master! very romantic and perfect shot! the water frozen is perfect, the bridge and the people on the bridge are very romantic.
markstaples (15670) 2008-03-04 11:43
This is a very beautiful shot with a really well found title. The compo is pleasant and your PP work has had a very dreamy effect on the whole pic. Nice one.
bwiti (402) 2008-03-07 6:11
Leaving reality ? C'est vrai qu'il y a un peu de cela ! Je trouve l'utilisation de neat-image trop exagérée, sinon cette photo est vraiment intéressante... Il y a quelque chose de l'ordre de l'irréel dans celle-ci, un irréel que l'on visiterait bien d'ailleurs...
steliosk (4802) 2008-03-07 7:57
Another great atmosphere,
perhaps the usage of neat image made your picture quite soft, but i like the result
excellent scene, outstanding POV, great job
josepmarin (57507) 2008-03-09 10:29
Fantastic shot, with a great aesthetic level and a lot of graphical strength by the treatment in B*W that works very well here. The cold and misty environment is very well caught, I like the arch of the bridge and the reflections in the water, and the life that the persons and the birds give at the composition.
A great work.
xavis (3180) 2008-03-10 14:46
just wonderfoul how you have paint this photo. The soft lights and the soft contrast gives a very special atmosphere.
A really fine work also with overexposition of the snow.
Good work of PP.
Nolme (6827) 2008-03-11 6:16
une mise en évidence parfaite de cette photo à l'ambiance prenante.
Elaine_Blath (8509) 2008-03-14 5:17
this is such a beauty, almost like painted...
Take care, Ivana
fryz (1735) 2008-03-20 2:11
This is a very good "mise en scène" with judicious neat image application
Thank you very much for your attention
BoisBarb (10369) 2008-03-20 4:48
Merveilleuse photo, pleine de sereinité. L'ambiance est surréaliste dans cette atmosphère froide et austère. Du très beau boulot!
brevbrev14 (140) 2008-03-23 8:27
Hi Lili, very good image!
it seems to be in dream...
i like a lot the atmosphere here and your compo
Piotrek80 (672) 2008-03-24 13:06
Absolutely wonderful picture. I love the atmosphere. A fine piece of art.
lasscor (7640) 2008-03-25 4:42
Lovely B&W composition, full of softness and calmness.
A real poetry.
VincentFavre (148) 2008-03-25 12:33
Superb composition and post production Lili... ;)
erdo (569) 2008-03-25 13:45
beautiful, have you painted it with water paint ?
Khattakphoto (686) 2008-03-26 5:28
This is very good picture
donluicu (24718) 2008-03-28 9:58
i don't know what to say, this image looks a bit unreal..
the feeling, the atmosphere are good, but i don't know what you've done to the picture..
anywy, it's a pleasant image
Jonas_Schmitt (3074) 2008-03-28 15:33
What a fantastic picture with the perfect title! Just looks crazy. Very creative idea and amazing picture.
bigtim (3518) 2008-04-02 15:34
Bonsoir Liliana, une ambiance un peu phantomatique sur cette photo le noir et blanc et tres oportuns!
MichaelTrezzi (3347) 2008-04-04 9:42
Hello Lili, wonderful picture from a town, the B&W version is just great and the slightly blurred ends of the branches put the picture as you say "out of reality". Well done. Thanks for sharing. Rgds, Michael
jmdias (52650) 2008-04-04 17:24
beautiful image. it is like a dream, especialy in the background where the image is like blured. reflections are like a not real thing, the shapes are strange and so beautiful and the ducks are the elements that bring us to reality.
PaulVDV (20471) 2008-04-06 12:57
Excellent and artistic picture showing that an icy day can be very beautiful.
I like the blur in the trees, and also the ducks on the foreground.
Very good composition.
NMaverick (0) 2008-04-10 3:50
Again an astonishing composition, useful for the amateurs. You have to think before you shoot, what you want to say through your picture and this is a very suitable company for these wise words. Thanks for making my day once more.
patdeph (35748) 2008-04-11 9:07
it's a lond time that I didn't come in your gallery,and it's so beautiful that it's a little bit dificult to choose!This one is really marvelous,I don't know how you have given this effect to the background,but the atmosphere is completly unreal.You are right,the 2 people on the bridge seem to leave the reality to go to the dream!Wonderful!
Have a nice week-end.
Anna-- (7791) 2008-04-13 0:06
what a beautiful pic! Great winter atmosphere, excellent inclusion of the people and very nice reflections and B/W image
Have a nice sunday
Jakou (642) 2008-04-13 14:37
Excellent travail à tout point de vue, plus beaucoup d'originalité. Je ne manquerai pas de revenir sur tes photos prochainement.
Angshu (54745) 2008-04-14 21:29
Absolutely brilliant! Like the softness at the top, as if we're looking through a frosted glass. The softness, the tones and the compo. is excellent! a PICTURE TO SAVOUR, to look for a long long time.
npecanhuk (60960) 2008-04-22 12:21
The title of this picture and the picture itself, they just match so perfectly!
It's such a magical scene... and you, so professionally have captured in your camera and have given us as a real gift!
Just wonderful! No doubt why it had so many comments and compliments!
Thanks for sharing it with us!
Greetings from Brazil
ilhanucar (477) 2008-04-22 14:52
Very nice compo, fantastic picture, wonderful atmospher.
AttilaLToth (46) 2008-05-04 10:30
Auf die Gefahr hin, dass es plump klingt - beim Betrachten deiner Fotografie läuft mir ein kalter Schauer vom Nacken den Rücken herunter und ich bekomme eine Gänsehaut.
Es wirkt auf mich einsam und ruhig (im Vordergrund) und gleichzeitig unterschwellig bedrohlich, düster und befremdlich (im Hintergrund) - dort lauert die Kälte.
ak47apache (217) 2008-05-09 3:34
salutare,...... si WOW!... atat am de spus
o poza SUPERBA, numai bine, dany
Juntas (7958) 2008-05-13 1:55
Hi Lili. All's been said. That is an amazing photo. Very well done. tfs. Paulo
gbarto (1273) 2008-05-16 3:03
Superbe photo qui rend bien l'ambiance de ce moment là : brrrrrrrr! vite à la maison
Le cadrage est parfait très net au premier plan et de plus en plus flou au fur et à mesure que l'on s'éloigne
testmaniac (13508) 2008-05-16 21:42
Hi Liliana, very good photo with excellent composition,contrast and POV. I feel the atmosphere!
Steft (5975) 2008-05-27 2:56
This is really wonderful! What kind of PP-work did you do? I am always willing to learn more about it.
The photo has a fantastic mood. The vague shapes, the black and white colours. Everything works well here.
erbiloguz (922) 2008-05-30 20:55
This is a dream shot..I like it so much....no comment just watching it...
Blairfraser (849) 2008-06-06 8:11
Wow! I'm not really sure what to say Liliana! This is just an amazing picture. I really like your composition here with this bridge. Your timing here is just great as I feel you have captured the people on the bridge at a very good point.
This is just really good! Well done!
J_Schmitt (163) 2008-06-10 10:56
Perfectly composed b/w image, I like the atmosphere a lot. There are many wonderful details, for example the swimming ducks and the persons walking across the bridge. The reflections are good. It looks like in a magic-world.
I´ll add it to my favorites!!!
jaywalker (16095) 2008-06-14 1:18
Hi Liliana, This is a truly amazing piece of work with out-standing effects, there is softness & peace through-out & the overall composition is first class, this is a very beautiful winters scene & the frame really suits, TFS, kind regards Wilson.
aofl (1088) 2008-06-14 11:50
Nice photo, and amazing POV.Good sharpness and composition
France (125) 2008-06-15 12:26
Leaving reality, it exactly what we fell looking at your picture. Marvellous composition and the use of B&W was obvious here. Looks like a drawing. I like the blur touches in the background.
Have a nice week,
rbcy1974 (20758) 2008-06-16 3:51
THis is pure magic
what else can I say, perfect, I mean perfect light,
really well done
RPoole5552 (1812) 2008-06-17 6:42
One of the best I've seen in awhile. Thanks for sharing.
colibriav (2152) 2008-06-23 6:58
Preciosa fotografia, muy buena composicion, muy buena luminosidad, el trabajo con el colorido del marco hacen una fotografia muy espacial.
Un saludo desde España:
mikele_pl (2400) 2008-06-24 16:45
this is definitely beyond reality, in fact it is beyond comprehension. I think it is a truely marvellous photo, definitely one of my favourite ones here on TE. Superb!
Thanks for sharing
goodwill (4224) 2008-07-28 11:22
Shall try to find some words to express...........
jimkilgallon (0) 2008-08-13 17:19
It really looks like a winter postcard with very good pp work to get the soft bits in. The composition is superb and the colours are nice and natural looking. The off red border compliments the capture so well.
fulvio52 (8314) 2008-09-02 23:44
Good morning Liliana,
there's very little I can possibly add to what everybody else already said...
This shot is a classic B&W beauty, absolutely flawless and dreamy beyond belief!
Have a nice day, I'll be seeing you.
Dragut (14) 2008-09-08 9:03
A little bet cold in this summer for me ;-o . But very nice picture, quiet, all and every body sleeping, waiting for spring.....
Except these two peoples on the bridge.
nilo (89) 2008-09-11 23:47
Wow!!! What a picture! Your post processing work is of high standards. You are special!
Seanwalker (66) 2008-09-15 17:58
Remakably beautiful. this is what a dream--a good dream really look like. SeaN
AnaRita (1741) 2008-09-25 7:55
A fantastic scene! It reminds a movie I saw recently, "Le notti bianche". Beautiful!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing,
jvachon (548) 2008-09-25 9:16
I do not spend a whole lot of time on TE. Lovely to see you here.
This is some shot--so effective in B/W, with perfect composition and tones.
Well presented, as always.
lucasgalodoido (21051) 2008-10-04 12:28

You really left the reality here, good composition like abstract view of people on snowy bridge, great background textures around, good in B/W.

Have a nice day.
