I took these images out of the window of an old Hamburg storehouse down into the frozen channel ...

Christoph, Both are very good. The first is exceptionally good. You're obviously doing some serious looking.

Yes... I think the bird tracks in the second one are interesting, but the first one is really well done.

The first image is marvelous, no question. The second one is also very nice although not as strong as the first photo.

I guess we are all different. Both are excellent, but I am drawn to the birds more.

Both are very good and aren’t fairly comparable to each other. One is a study in a highly complex scene and the other is a portrait of a fairly simple scene.

The textures of the snow is superb in both and that’s the key commonality between the two.

Yes, two winners.  The first one succeeds because of progression from chaos at the bottom to order at the top, and it has some lovely textures.  The second one works for me because of the sparse composition and the abstract patterns that are created.  The little tracks in the snow add a lot of interest.  Great job.

Thank you, everyone - I really didn't expect that lot of positive feedback.

I consider this kind of images presents from the god of photography.

Of course, I have seen it, taken it, postprocessed it, but ...
... after all the scene was already there.

Cheers

Chris, That's what HCB meant when he said, "Photographing is nothing. Looking is everything." It's sometimes amazing to see how few people actually look. Most people "see" when someone points them toward a picture, but very few do the active thing and "look."

And another thing, you were there too, Chris - and if you stand in the same footprints from now until the end of time, you won't see precisely the same scene ever again.
Great images - and don't sell yourself short on the technical know-how inolved in shots like that, not the least being exposure. No blue snow for you!

Cheers,

I remember a book I was reading very long ago (25+ years) from Andreas Feininger about photographic looking and composing. Maybe it has influenced me much more than I can reflect right now consciously. Actually I'd consider this the most important photographic book I ever read. I also remember studying a book with a compilation of the best images of the "Life" magazine at this time. Seems my old time long ago studies pay back even now.

Probably that semi-masochistic, never-being-fully-content is one of the cases where neurotic traits actually might lead to something good.

Two very fine images. Another situation where I would really like to see these as prints, but am thankful that the "net" allows me to see them at all. Hope that you are printing these as they are worthy of a more permanent display.

Both are wonderfully composed, but the second one is marvelous. Nice work!
