I took this photograph on a Sunday morning while being outside with my best friend. It was wonderful silent and cold (about -20°C) - how I love that. ;)

The photograph is available as wallpaper free downloadable at my website or here at deviantART. :w00t:

Canon EOS 450D | EF 50mm f/1.8 II | Tripod
MF | 3 RAW's | ISO 100 | f/11.0 @ 1/250-1/40s

Hope you like it - every comment, critique & :+fav: is much appreciated. :w00t:

This photograph is almost just perfect. What I realy like is the complementary orange and blue contrast which creates some life in the frozen environment.

It could be an introduction image for somekind of fairy tale!

Further it always make me happy that people with a relative cheap DSLR body know to make great photographs. It is not realy the equipment what counts, but the Eye behind it. I wonder if you have done some post-processing on this photo?

The only suggestion I think of that could be experimenting with an alternative point perspective. I wonder how it would look like then. For example keeping the camera a bit lower. Know this is a mere suggestion, the image is just great as it is.

This shot is fantastic. I can't think of how it could be improved. I love the composition and the light play of the sun through the trees.

I get a really good sense of how cold it is there with the white and blue colour of the snow. The sun gives it a magical quality creating interesting shadows which really lifts the shot up from just another winter forest road.

You have a great eye for capturing the moment and leaving the viewer spellbound at the click of the shutter.

Clean, still, crisp and vibrant. Thanks for this and the smile on my face.

I've seen this image on Tumblr with various "copyrights" on it. Now that I know who actually took the picture, I can start reporting those images for frauds! It's an amazing image, and I'm happy I know who took it now. It's used as the "cover image" for one of my favourite youtube mixes, and it makes me happy when I see it. Thank you for sharing!

Can i please use this for a graphic design I'm making? i'm only going to use the top right corner. It's beautiful by the way.

Not for free, sorry. If you're still interested please note me more information.

Well, I'm going to submit it to a website called Threadless. If the design is accepted and voted high enough by other users it may get printed as a t-shirt. If it does get printed I'd be happy to pay you, and if not then I gain nothing commercially and will not use the image again.

I'm sorry but there's just the possibility to earn a right-to-use with marginal amount and if the t-shirt is accepted we could increase the amount. :)
