perfettamente incorniciata la scena con una particolare effetto del legno ghiacciato.
Ottima la prospettiva con un forte contrasto cromatico tra gli elementi

Nice one, and very original. It's amazing sometimes what the frost can do! You have really caught some beautiful soft light on the frosted wood while still incorporating the rising sun.....not an easy task sometimes. And there is a great three-dimensional feeling also. Here is a link to a frost pic of mine from quite a few years ago now. It has a very different feel from yours, but during the night, the moist and cold air left quite a magic deposit; seen here in the morning sun:
Fine work as always, warm regards,

A lovely sunrise shot where the morning frost can be seen on this wood fence. I like the quiet atmosphere with great colors and misty view.

Truly a winter picture, I feel almost the cold and low temperature behind my desk!
Wonderful how you took the sun between the wood handrail.
The colors and the perception are very attractive .
Excellent captured lovely composed.
Very well done, TFS.

The point of view is very good: the sun is in the middle of this "hole" which makes a kind of window.
Moreover the colors are great and complementary: blue and orange.

An image that cries out winter. The composition is unusual and very effective but what strikes most is the lighting and the misty atmosphere. A fine piece of photography.

Très bonne idée cette prise de vue. Bien vu. Les couleurs sont superbes et l'ambiance paisible bien présente.
J'aime le contraste de l'idée du froid (le givre) et le chaud (le soleil).
Bravo et merci pour le partage.

Your shot is like a famous "Impression, Sunrise" - a painting by Claude Monet. Very delicate colors and very impressive.

so you left from Santorini with its colours, and show us here this excellent Winter sunrise over the river thought the slot of the bridge during the mooring frost.I like the placement of the sun in the slot of the bridge, that really looks like as a wood-frame.

A masterpiece this superb composition, perfect framing, great tones, very nice winter atmosphere and the freezing on the gate is the most beautiful effect!

delpeoples (48654) 2011-09-01 0:38
Man that is some kind of frost, a real contrast to the sunny Greek series. But I love this, it's got great mood and you've made an ordinary fence post look extraordinary and so beautiful. Love the perspective and the soft pink tones. Great job.
Have a beautiful day
PS: congrats on your new Intro photo :)

Wow Brian - superb! Your picture emphasises the advantages of capturing that early light. The POV is excellent and gives the image a strong composition.

williewhistler (9873) 2011-09-01 6:35
Hello Brian,this is such a lovely winter shot,the texture of the frost on the rails is super,as is the soft pink light.
Excellent composition and presentation.
sevy (14307) 2011-09-01 7:33
Good use of the fence for the composition, building a frame inside frame effect. Moreover there is the opposition in the feelings: warm colors on the sun, but clearly a cold weather looking to the frost on the pilar.
Cricri (92213) 2011-09-01 9:48
Excellent le cadrage de la remparte de bois gelée avec la vue sur e coucher de soleil, très belle réalisation
dkmurphys (42527) 2011-09-02 1:30
A splendid scene there. I like the strong contrast between the cold frozen wood and the warm shy sunlight. Lovely.
Have a great weekend.
alex4ndru (1374) 2011-09-03 2:09

wish u all the best!
Waylim (23314) 2011-09-05 21:14
Wow, fantatic shot. Love it, not only is it beautiful, but I love how you captured the weather condition, at first great it is conceiving, it make one think of a nice warm summer sunset, until we discover the frost and ice on the wooden frame, a combination of warm and cool tone give a really wonderful effect. Great compostion and POV using the opening of the rail to frame the sunset perfectly.
Also love the texture of the frost and ice on the wood surface. I can almost feel it with my mumb fingers.
Charo (51208) 2011-09-13 13:18
The photo can not be more spectacular, combining the ice cream cold environment of the bridge with the warm colors of dawn.
A very unique and beautiful composition.
yquem46 (35378) 2011-09-14 0:58
many good images in your gallery posted during my trip to Ladakh
I select this one, splendid
great contrast between the cold colors of the frozen bridge and the those, warm, of the sunset
Excellent use of the rectangle as a natural frame to the sun
Best to you
ktanska (22686) 2011-09-14 11:36
Wow, this is beautiful. Sometimes winter conditions reach England too, I'm glad you took the chance. Good colour contrast between blue frost and warm tones of sunrise. And original motif, that frost is well worth a close look.

The master execution make this a fantsti photo. Love the detail of the frozen water at the fence and the perspective you create giving so much depth.
