    A very pretty shot Roosje, excellent composition. One little suggestion: You might copy the layer and darken it a bit. Then create a mask and "paint" in the darker area on the out of focus portion. This would draw more attention to the subject matter. If you wish, email me the "raw" and I would be happy to do this and send you back a .psd with all of the layers intact so you can see what I mean..
  7. Exquisite! I get chills just looking at it. Brrrr!
  8. Nice. I like the supporting background in shadow.

    What a lovely way to begin my day, so many wonderful reactions, Thank you!

    Randy, I don't know what masks are, but I did work with layers and gaussian blur to give the photo more DOF and made use of image adjustments and sharpening in PS. I have to start finding out how masks work, I have no idea yet where I can find them. If I don't succeed I would very much like to make use of your offer :smile: I don't work in raw, I find the files far to big :redface:

    I am very happy with the advice you have given me, again I have come a step further in my learning process in photography, thank you!

    p.s I just googled and found a lot of info. on masks for example http://www.webreference.com/graphics/column23/4.html

    That is a very beautiful image, Roosje. A good eye for composition on this type of photography is something that I don't possess, but I can honestly say that your image is very nice. I like the detail and how the light shimmers through the ice. Wonderful DOF as well.

    Frank, thank you. Before I started serieusly with photography, composition was something I did with my intuition, but found it difficult to get a real grasp on it. Now together with the knowledge of rule of thirds, diagonals etc it has become much easier for me. I first use my intuition and then check if it is conform the rules of composition. I very much enjoy looking at pictures of others, some are at a level which I know I will never be able to reach.
