this is a very special picture of wonderful depth and strong and very alienated atmosphere. Very moody shot. Well done.

Very moody photo you have taken. Strong composition with the snowy track leading the eye towards the horizon.
To me it seems the horizon is a little tilted - a correction would make the photo even better.
Have a nice Sunday.

Another of your moody, atmospheric compositions. You have (I think) done quite a bit of post-processing, but it's done with subtlety and taste. In particular I like the darkness surrounding the snow-covered path/pier: the road to nowhere across nothing!

Loved the ethereal mood of the picture and how the white path way reaches the sky. Amazing composition. Maybe it could be even better if the vanishing point was a bit more centralized in the picture. Congrat!
