PHOTO STAFF CRITIQUE
“A roadway drives you into this snowy woodland scene, giving depth to the image. The road is a powerful force that starts from each bottom corner and shoots into the center of the image.
“Negative and positive areas created by the snow-covered trees pulse back and forth with energy. Yet, it is still a peaceful winter landscape.”
