    This is just a great great image and could easily have been No. 1. Thank you too for the detailed explanation of how you did it. (Now to see if I can even get close to this effect with a few of tries of my own.) Congrats on a deserving ranking and a fine finish (no pun intended)!

    Congratulations, Old Finn. A beautiful (if cold) shot! Snow always fascinates me. I've probably only seen it snow a dozen times in my life!

    Great finding and the perfect moment for this shot! She seems to hesitate...
Very good composition. Seldom seen such a clear snow shot!

    For me a stunning composition, but bleak and scary at the same time. Very nice. Good luck.

But I really like it!

    Thus far I have seen three stunning images. This is one of them How people will choose between them is anybodies guess, but this has got to be very high in the end. There is nothing to critique here, merely to admire. Bravo.

    Thanks Jade O. I took several pics of this underpass with my Canon Eos 450D. As you see, there was snowing.
In PP with PSPX2, I cropped first, made BW conversion, histogram adjustment +1,20, if I rememver right. I added contrast and because the noise became too stong in the dark heaven, I selected the heaven and made digital noise reduction. Then High pass sharpening. I tried also sepia toning, but realized, that the pic needed the better contrast of the BW pic.

    This is a remarkably beautiful and technically excellent image. I would really like a tutorial on the step by step method of getting to this image. A clear favourite. Well on theme. Great image.
