great colors and use of depth of field. You have a good series here of "frosty" pictures.

@Chris: Thanks. "Frosty" is about all I have of interest these days!

Lorie from United States

Beautiful - I love the colors and frosty look!

Like the touch of frost. It contrasts nicely with the colors here. Very nice image.

@John Maslowski: Thanks. I switched to my macro lens, which I haven't used in several months.

@Richard_Irwin: I am discovering beauty in the cold, barren winter.

Sharpness looks fine... but if you are not happy I see you have Photoshop 7... a bit of unsharp mask might help. If you ever you move up to Photoshop CS2 or 3 they have a brilliant new sharpening tool called Smart sharpen.

@scotfot: Thanks, Scott. I use Unsharp Mask, but, I admit to being rather quick and casual about it. So far I haven't seen much reason to spend $200 to upgrade, but........
