Hmmmm......I must say that from first glance, I could tell that this was going to be something I would like. This piece of art is simple, neat,original, yet elegent, giving it a classy look and style. Did you personally photograph this? If you did, I have to say that you are the most amazing photographer I have ever seen. This piece of art has perfect focus, a wonderful colur scheme, and I cannot find a single thing wrong with it. If this site was asking for my rating, I would tell them that you deserve 5 stars! Great job, aned keep up the good work!

This is a beautiful shot, and being quite new to photography I did not know it was possible to capture snowflakes in such a stunning way. I really like how the background contrasts against the snowflake, it makes it stand out even more. The only thing I would say that slightly annoys me is how there is a bit of wool covering part of the snowflake, I just think it takes the focus away from it a little bit. I love how the overall picture comes across though and you should be proud because this is a lovely shot, and I would love to know how to came to do it. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> Well done.

Well, as a new deviant, i'm a first time critiquer and I think you really deserve a FAIR one!

~Vision:That vision is exceptionaly splended and seems risk-taking to creat such a snapshot! How the snowy base ties into the snowflake as well as the backround, Magic.

~Originality: Your form on originaly seems a bit redundant to me since this isn't the first real-life snowflake snap-shot I had seen. But the impact towards it surly is. Just on star off but hey, the rest of the critique seem s to go well!

~Technique: Now the styling of this photo is something I can NEVER do, not ever FREE HAND. Your camra photography skills is giving me great inspration and just how it's pt together beforhand is.....WOW.

~Impact: .....*faints*

I think this is absolutely beautiful. The isolation of the shot provides a dramatic feel of loneliness when viewing the one central piece.
The bokeh in the front is a little bit too harsh and tends to eclipse the the simple feel of the piece for me, though the softness of the background bokeh effect is perfect and adds to the dreamy texture.
The contrasts between light and dark reminds me of soft winter sunlight and weaves the texture of a cold winter landscape. Simple and perfect.
Overall, a well done piece that has introduced me to your work. I plan to explore more of it in the future.

I'm totally jealous of your work man. I was trying to get snow last year but didn't get anything good.
