Is this a composite: No
Nice, simple composition. But extremely well executed, Chris. Well done.
I like this simple composition. The tree trunk is well-exposed. The grasses in the snow add depth. The snow is a little grungy. Maybe try bringing up the whites. There is a little shadowing in the snow. These can add some depth to what is mostly flat snow.
This brightens up the whole image for me, Chris! I think the grasses and tree pop out more against the whiter snow.
Chris, this is an interesting mix of minimalist with scattered details… The emphasis on that good looking birch trunk works well, with the details in the trunk looking very good. I do think that more contrast between the snow and the grass is good. There’s a slight blue cast to the snow and I’m wondering how removing it would look.
Great photo Chris. I love the contrast and how well the grass blades are seen. The details in the tree are very good.
