Magnifique prise de vue, on peut voir des espaces de sol qui annonce le printemps. Ici nous avons encore plus de neige après l'hiver que nous avons eu, mais les dexu derniers jours ont été plus encourageant, 12° et 13° C. J'aime beaucoup la composition avec la tour et les maisons en haut de la pente. Beau travail et bonne note.
Félicitations!... et bon dimanche,

Hi Jim, I like the composition in this shot, the front portion without snow, and with the large rock on the left plays a very effective base. The snow covered area rises on an angle against the sky, from right to left ending with the lighthouse, so everything kind of leads us to that lighthouse. Colour is good, and I like the detail seen here, both in the highlights area and shadow regions. Contrast might be just a tad higher, but with a low contrast it gives the feel of a "warming" type of winter day, where there is a bit of a mist in the air. I played a bit with it. I like the higher contrast, but this might be a little more realistic.
