Congratulations – Kristel Schneider IOW 11th May, 2012! by Greg Downing
– NatureScapes.net

I just found out that my image: Wood Sorrel,  has been  selected as ‘Image Of the Week’ at Naturescapes.Net (a photography forum) in the category, Flora and Macro.

Some feedback:

– Very painterly, looks a bit like a fantasy forest.

– Very cool. Excellent use of blurring in both foreground and background in a way that enhances the subject rather than distracting from it.

– I enjoy this very much. A dream-like work of art.

– Delicate, ethereal and just beautiful! This is gorgeous Kristel!
– Very much out of a fairy tale, Kristel. Lovely in all respects.

I just found out that my image: Winter finally showing its face,  has been  selected as ‘Image Of the Week’ at Naturescapes.Net (a photography forum) in the category, Travel and Culture.

Some feedback (so far):

– The FG trees have taken on the colour of the early morning light which is beautiful.

But the shadowy glimpses of the BG enshrouded in the fog brings a sense of mystery, and keeps me peering into the image looking for more details – which is why it’s so delightful. It’s as if I’m waiting and watching to see the fog melt away. Fascinating.

– This is really cool!- My dogs are the same Kristel, they love their walk on a frosty ning – as long as they can curl up in the warm house when we get home! It is so pretty to see the frosted landscape after the warm winter we’ve been having – and this is a beautifully composed scene in your own style. Love it!

– Really a gem on an image. That building in the mist shrouded hill takes this to a new level. So well done.

– Wow this is so subtle. Incredible, Kristel. I love it!
