This photo always catches my eye if I'm browsing the most popular of all time, and I love it!

The idea has been used many times since, but at the time you took it I'm sure it was far more original. The contrast between the strong sunlight and the dark tree is what makes it so eye-catching, but there are other good elements to the photo as well. For example, the photo is very well composed - the fact that the tree is in the middle of the frame works perfectly. The snowy ground adds further contrast, and breaks up the picture slightly.

The blue tint on the picture gives the rays of light a great strength, and this would not be so if the picture were black and white. The subtle frame is very neat as well.

Keep up the good work, =rorymac666

This piece immediately got my attention when I first spotted it.
Of course, I didn't have a premium subsription and couldn't critique. But that's changed.
On the piece:
It's really simple, yet I think it took quite some time making this.
I love how the background slowly turns more hazy; It's really gives a winter-like feel, as well does the gray and blue colour scheme. This also is an example of "right place, right time". It's hard to find a spot like this and all the conditions right. Of course, Photoshop is our very best friend if something is not quite perfect enough for a landscape like this. Now let's get to the real critical points. You can give the light a bit more impact by making the edges of the picture darker. The black edge already gives a bit of that feel but it can be more. Try playing with the "Inner Shadow" function in Photoshop, you might improve this. Though this piece kinda reminds me of Narnia- And I do not like Narnia- I'll have to give it a 4.75 overall rating.
Great job. Epic, as some have called it.

Nice photo.  The light  from the sun sort of, I don't know, refracts(?) around the tree very nicely.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you
