I really like the rendering on the trees and the swallows flitting about add a really nice effect. I think you have some great compositional elements here. I realize this sort of thing is highly subjective but I find the diagonal snowfield at the bottom very distracting. It just doesn't seem to fit in and I feel the image would be much stronger without it. The trees are quite powerful and can hold their own.

How I decided to frame this one was sort of intuitive, but what was running through my brain on some level is wanting to frame the water - snow in the foreground and the trees on the top of the frame. Just two layers seemed to be lacking something. I also wanted to put a limit on how large that body of water seemed by having something in the foreground.

I did try a crop of it the way you suggested, it's not bad that way, I just like this one more.

Totally understand and agree - after all you are the creator, and I wasn't there. You certainly have a much better sense of your unique vision than do I ;-)a

My first attempt of very long exposure with filters of 16 stops total.
Curious, what you think about it...

The long exposure is good for simplifying the scene, which we are always trying to do - the clouds somewhat, but especially the water. Possibly it takes some drama out of the sky, but that's hard to know without seeing it with a normal exposure.

Thanks.

Do you mean, photo should looks better if sky was without clouds, with simples shades of grey ?
This day was windy and cloudy...and I D&B sky...maybe I shouldn't did it ?

You got the highlights spot-on, which is one of the hidden challenges of daylight LE. Very fine work.

I meant you get more moody skies if it's semi-stormy, like in the photo I just put up there. But that's a different photo, and blending two photos with a stormier sky and the water having that long exposure look just wouldn't work. So forget I said anything.

REALLY cool! Looks like an outtake from "Bad Robot" productions.

This is actually kind of interesting - I think it may be better suited for abstract though IMO.
