The first impression I got watching this picture is A MASTERPIECE, as a poetic work as a masterful play, really one of your best photos, despite the fact that all your photos are excellent.
Larry, congratulations !!!
There really, you've outdone yourself !!!
Color balance, rhythm, colors, strength of a few remaining trees with their orange leaves in a sea of gray tone and white, feeling of distance, composition, it is Art with a capital A !!!

I do know exactly what you mean! I just can't figure it...how the quick snaps get the lions share of the attention, and the ones we slave over and think are great, get glazed over...very bizarre. Still, I really like this shot!

Thanks Sheri, that is very kind of you. Truth is, every week I see at least a dozen worthy photos and I don't usually agree with the pick. Then isn't it funny how much effort can go into some photos that you are proud of (you all know what I mean) and then one where you stop your car, do a quick take of a scene, take a few shots out the window and drive off... that one gets picked.

Thanks Dave and Isabelle... I think we all submit a lot of good photos, so I don't know how they pick one. Was a pleasant surprise.
