I feel bad reviewing this when I don't have any six stars left to give it. Your work is amazing and time consuming! Your snow color, shading and highlights make it look very realistic and inviting. The way it covers the evergreen branches is delightful. The multiple shades of blue throughout the scene are attractive. I like the fallen tree over the water too.

This is a very nice painting by digital. Normally I don't like digital art and prefer tradition but you did a good job on this, rendering the snow. It does look real. Great clouds in the sky and it looks like its going to snow again. You did a great job on the trees with the layers on snow on the branches. I like the way you laid the fallen tree across the creek.

A lovely digital piece of artwork that is meticulously composed and with great attention to detail and a very precise and lifelike feel to it. The untouched white snow with the hint of blue of the reflected sky is superb throughout, and the trees are brilliantly formed, coated with snow that balances delicately, with the thin frozen stream or path (I can't quite tell!) running from the fore of the piece into the distance of the well layered piece that exhibits great depth and a good 3D feel to it. In the distance the forest of sparse and frosty trees covers the ground, and looming clouds in great shades of blue linger above on this very wintery and serene scene. A wonderful piece, accompanied by a charming poem in the narrative which rings true as well!! Great work, well done :)

Impressive rhymes supplementing a literally cool creation!

Diminishing perspective gives an interesting initial impact.
Vanishing viewpoint creates great depth.

Good perspective & long depth of field...
Fantabulous digiart presentation.

Thanks for sharing...

You have created an absolutely beautiful piece of art. Although it does look like a beautiful photograph, I really appreciate you explaining your process and adding the website for me to look at and understand more.
The trees look so real and the snow so perfect.I like how you have the fallen tree over the creek. Your clouds are so wonderful.
Thank you so much for sharing such a wonder piece of art. I look forward to seeing more.

    Thank you for your review,; however, I am decidedly curious how all five's in your itemized review equates to 4.5 stars. Perhaps it's a mistake.
reply by Photopeb on 24-Dec-2017
    Your right I got in a bit of a hurry....Sorry about that. The site has a way of doing that it seems. Ill correct it.
reply by Photopeb on 24-Dec-2017
    Interesting as I went back to correct the rating and there was nothing in it not even a 4 1/2 but shout be a 5 star now.
