Une belle image de saison avec le blouson orange qui ajoute de la couleur sur la neige.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

This is a very interesting photo for me as a person that lives in a mild climate.The orange jacket against the black and white is eye-catching. WE are led into the image by the path and the person in the jacket carrying their groceries. I can't comprehend what it means to live and work in a climate where the changes in seasons are so dramatic. The small group of people on the left of the image add an element of mystique. They seem to be performing some activity where they are focused on something on the ground. In all a very good image that has been well planned.
Have a nice day.

A very snappy title:-) A good capture of this snowy landscape nicely enlivened by the man in his orange jacket. No snow here yet but quite cold of late.

Hello Gunnar Smart choice of a long frame to accentuate the soaring trees Good graphic against the white snow with splendid sharpness of red point.
Very nice photo, with great contrast between these colors, and very good choice for POV

Amazing frame and composition.
Beautiful winter climate.
Person add savor of photo!.
Have a nice evening

Detta verkar vara så nära en sådan där partiell desaturering det går att komma utan särskilda knep. De närmaste månaderna är det väl bara kläder och bilar som kan ge färg åt bilderna. Detta är en väldigt snygg och sober bild från ett av dina stamställen (fina träd förresten). Vitsig titel också.
eldancer1 (29403) 2012-12-05 9:35
Brrr! This look so cold! Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. I'm glad you included the person with red coat, it adds to the mood. Very well done, tfs.

Humorous title :))
Beautiful winter photo with great composition and one red spot: jacket of this man. Fantastic graphism of tree branches against the sky
elenimavrandoni (14207) 2012-12-05 12:23
Hello Gunnar, oh!those winters in Goethenborg, so beautiful and attractive!The ice on the trees is a great highlight with exceptional contrast of black and white!Great park, great shot!

Hi dear Gunnar
Sorry for my no response for several days due to my short photo expeditionary. Just come back and I will ctach up sonnest.
Oh you have already much snow like this. Fantastic winter image indeed! Orange jacket is very vivid and attractive. Very well balanced framework due to your deep consideration. Thank you for your sharing with your best shot and have a good day!

Très bonne composition hivernale avec une belle opposition entre la personne colorée symbolisant la vie et ces arbres dénudés aux troncs noirs.
Graal (98630) 2012-12-05 23:45
welcome winter in Gothenburg! Nice view here. Fine colourful living accent on FG. Park and photo I like.
Have a nice day.
emka (81722) 2012-12-05 23:56
Hi Gunnar, Winter again, for me nothing to be happy about. If there were no this man in orange jacket, the photo would be black and white. Great depth and nicely shown the leafless branches of the trees. Brrr, it looks cold.
We have a bit of snow and greay, I do not like this time of the year.
wolf38 (31282) 2012-12-05 23:59
Hi Gunnar. A red dot in the wintry white. The combination is well chosen. During this season, people enjoy the tranquility of nature.
s_lush (16134) 2012-12-06 5:11
It is nice to see a real winter scene. Here, in Ukraine, we have not seen snow in this winter yet. The orange blazer adds more colorfulness in this mainly black-and-white view. A highly interesting composition, well reproduced winter atmosphere and absolutely perfect quality!
kasianowak (7219) 2012-12-06 5:54
Simple but effective image of severe winter weather. I like the fact it's almost black and white except for one splash of colour.
SnapRJW (31617) 2012-12-07 0:28
Hello Gunnar - You took this shot on my birthday where, here in Namibia, it was blazing hot. I would love to experience a European winter again. Nostalgic and romantic maybe but just look at the beauty of this stark scene. An almost monochromatic landscape where the orange-jacketed figure pulls one's eyes into the frame. Warm regards rosemary
Buin (42350) 2012-12-07 4:50
Yes Gunnar, here one can feel cold - and this impression is even emphasized by the grey sky. I like the wonderful old tree population in the park and how all the naked branches in your photo are silhouetted against the sky. The red jacket is the only thing which gives some warmth in the scenery. ;-)
Greetings to you both from snowy Siegen!
anel (563) 2012-12-07 6:07
A picture with a lot of atmosphere showing well the freezing cold. Nice to have this orange coat as contrast to the surroundings. Very nice too to see the frozen river too. Yesterday I went out to take some shots in the same spirit.
tyro (20884) 2012-12-07 9:58
Well, the man with the red (or orange) jacket has returned to Gothenburg!
I thought at first that you had desaturated this picture, leaving it all monochrome except for the man's jacket, but on closer looking, I can see a couple of other tiny areas of colour - a little area of yellow on a distant building on the right and some slight hint of blue in the man's trousers. But, of course, in weather like this, things often look almost monochrome.
Your man is placed perfectly in the frame as also is the curve of the edge of the frozen moat and both the moat and the pathway lead us nicely into the picture.
A perfectly composed image with lovely soft light, strong contrasts and stunning details and sharpness. Nice to see the man with his red jacket back again!
SWEETFREEDOM (22960) 2012-12-07 23:59
we can see from the iced water on the right that the temperature are far below zero.
interesting p.o.v. and contrast of colors.
UlfE (14641) 2012-12-08 1:29
En mycket bra och välkomponerad vinterbild. Jag kan se att använt dig av linjerna i din komposition med vänstra kanten av gångvägen som börjar i nedre vänstra hörnet och kanten på Vallgraven som börjar i nedre högra hörnet. Personen i den färgglada jackan är både välplacerad och en färgklick. Att träden och deras kronor är inkluderade mer eller mindre i sin helhet är också bra. Tack för titten och ha en bra helg!
P.S. Dina frågor om hur långt jag var från ormvråkarna. Inte lätt att svara på när det gäller en förbliflygande fågel, inte så nära, 50-75 meter kanske. På min nästa bild är det nog någonstans mellan 75-100 meter.
jhm (141163) 2012-12-08 1:36
A very nice winter image with the woman as contrast against the white snow.
Also in Belgium get we the first snow and frost, but as in your country of course.
Nice depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, good presentation and soft colors.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
mesutilgim (86574) 2012-12-08 8:40
Hello dear Gunnar,
Not only this capture is great, but also the title !
The capture of this beautiful wintery scene is quite tasty, specially with the walker in red anorak and itr's layout.
Simple but nice framing.
TFS and have a nicve weekend
ourania (33443) 2012-12-08 11:39
a beautiful, almost monochrome picture in which composition and atmosphere are combined so well. I love the presence of the figure at that spot of the composition. They bring in a lovely and eye catching contrasting colour and an elegant sense of movement that doesn't disturb the harmony of the scenery and the peacefulness of the atmosphere. I love the depth, the apt lighting, the curves of path and moat as well as the way the naked branches open up and fill the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
vasilpro (40997) 2012-12-08 14:06
Wonderful wintry composition, the orange jacket gives a very good contrast, almost a b&w photo, excellent POV, TFS!
Greetings from Greece, Vasilis.

Merveilleus eimage hivernale sueprbe compo et captage avec les beaux arbres la touche de couleur avec le personnage grandiose décor.
Bravo et amitié
finlay (1549) 2012-12-09 13:04
A very seasonal winter shot. The pov is well chosen to take advantage of the bend of the path and the river. Of course it is the bright orange jacket that really makes this shot. It is real stand out in the icy grey weather.
scroller (3407) 2012-12-09 14:05
Om det inte vore för den orangea jackan skulle man lätt kunna luras at tro att det är ett fotografi i svart/vitt. Ja vinternahar verkligen fått fäste på gott och ont. Om man som jag tränar för klassikern är det finemang att det snöar rejält.
Hoppas helgen varit bra!
papagolf21 (87330) 2012-12-10 0:30
Bonjour, cher Gunnar,
Il n'est pas d'hiver sans neige, de printemps sans soleil, et de joie sans être partagée.
Un cadrage réalisé avec soin. La tache de couleur du vêtement agrémente joliment l'ensemble.
larsy (28) 2012-12-12 4:20
Klassisk vinterbild med en starkt färgad jacka mot den vita snön.
Oceania (5062) 2012-12-12 5:59
Yes, the snow covered ground and river is very beautiful. But, the person with bright colored clothes is the successful point of this picture.
bayno (18342) 2012-12-12 9:24
i like the mod of thi image, the red jacket cach fast the eyes...but after we can enjoy also the wonderful big trees..perfectly fraamed...
kordinator (19392) 2012-12-13 6:33
Nice view on the King´s Park in central Gothenburg.
Nice choisen square formar,fine sharp details and fantastic winter scene.
This little orange makes a lot.
An excellent composition.
COSTANTINO (57208) 2012-12-13 6:42
we are in the heart of the winter and this
shot is a classical snowy,winter shot
but the great beauty is the person
with the red creating a dynamic contrast
between white and red,but the trees
without leaves are nice and pleasant to our
eyes covered by white snow
have a nice evening
macjake (57780) 2012-12-13 10:19
i remember some of your older photos, i think taken in autumn with a similar path with one single person walking through it - this shot reminds me of those.
i guess winter has really struck hasn't it! great to see the tall dark branches against all the white. i think thats the main focus here.
Nard (6972) 2012-12-13 12:06
Nice title and nice picture merging a global "B&W" tone and an orange touch. Brrrrrr definitively I prefer the summer.
Silvio1953 (125507) 2012-12-14 1:08
Ciao Gunnar, an ice day to you too:), lovely winter composition with only colors in walking person, splendid season atmosphere, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-12-14 8:33
The winter atmosphere is remarkably rendered. Color highlights this beautiful landscape. Excellent quality. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
annjackman (20277) 2012-12-15 11:33
The orange jacket is super against the monochromatic BG and placed just right in the frame. A very wintry image perhaps reminding us in the UK of waht is to come.
Kind Regards, Ann
mirosu (15052) 2012-12-15 22:57
Very nice winterscape image. Well composed with the snow free water pond end and the man with orange jacket, contrasting very well with white snow. Well done.
Atousa (7131) 2012-12-17 8:23
Lovely winter atmosphere in this shot.. the orange person has made it special n it is very well placed in the framing.. a pleasant photo.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
Kielia (23847) 2012-12-18 8:17
really another thoroughly composed impression of this already well known place. Your POV works excellently and you took a great advantage of the bold perspective. The title is very well chosen; my compliments!
adores (38629) 2012-12-20 14:51
I guess this is one of the photos I had missed! Such a great winter atmosphere here!At first glance I can understand how cold it must be over there:)!
The woman with the orange coat really stands out and gives some colour to the park! Very well captured! I like this!
Merry Christmas to you, too:)!
Glint (6171) 2012-12-21 3:43
this is a good composition. The walker in the bright coloured jacket is perfectly placed. The colour a nice contrst to the mono of trees and snow.Very well exposed with no OE -always tricky to achieve.
aliabazari (15997) 2012-12-22 23:27
Hej kära vän
Attraktiv komposition med bra belysning. Bra färg. Går bra.
cornejo (33242) 2012-12-27 4:45
Hello Gunnar, very good and nice photo of this lovely postcard winter. Lovely image very well composed, framed and with high quality. Chaming job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing your lovely work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Best regards and best wishes.
Happy New Year.
jurek1951 (42160) 2013-01-19 23:31
Nice demonstration of winter. Well captured. Good Composition.
subhendu_bagchi (25909) 2014-03-20 4:00
wow! Interesting frame here. Love the snow covered area, like the leafless trees, like your composition in square format. Interesting framing and with fine light. The red dress at middle is really eye catching and contrasting. Great shot. Tfs.
kato (11630) 2014-05-24 18:21
You'Re capturing well this winter scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winter park covered to snow along the moat. It's effective for the man wearing the orange jamper as selective color and walking the winding promenade.
