The Second Day of Christmas
"Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace.
Let peace fill our hearts,
our world, our universe.
Peace, peace, peace."

- Satish Kumar

Une image calme, toute figée par l'hiver et la neige, le sépia donne beaucoup de douceur, mais les branches sombres créent une atmosphère fantastique, on s'attend à voir sortir les fées ..
Bonne journée John.

Light is really fantastic and i like the delicate drawing of snow on branches, it looks like lace, i agree with Zoom.

Jack, I love trees, and shoot a lot of them, and this is a fabulous shot and conversion. I love the vertical composition, the greenish tonal tint, and the light. Thanks!

26 Dec 2008 4:53pm

@Nacho: Nacho, Thanks for your kind words. Actually there was no conversion. All I did in post-processing was increase the exposure very slightly and the clarity a bit; both were done in Lightroom 2.2.

I absolutely love this! The tones, light and composition are amazing! It reminds me of a scene from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
