This image is full of silver and gold. The juxtaposition of the hot on cold is breathtaking. It seems like, instead of trying to melt the snow, the sun just wants to reach out and touch it.
The yellowy light is also really fantastic! Fantastic job in capturing the lighting in this image.
Normally, I consider it a bit obvious to stick your focal point in the middle of your artwork, and it is a little obvious here too. However, I like the symmetry, and in a way, a different angle would have delayed the impact and made the piece difficult to understand instantly. What you did works.
The focus and detail here is ideal. We're able to see everything at once, which to me is a lot more effective than any blur at all in this instance. Well chosen.
Finally, you managed to take this picture at exactly the right moment. This doesn't even look like a place on earth. It looks like the setting for an epic poem about Narnia, or the stage for the world's most strange and wonderful ballet. Thank you so much for bringing this to all the people who couldn't see it in person.
I've seen some of your other work, and I honestly think this takes the crown as your best photograph of all.
What do you think?

Příroda je to nejkrásnější, co existuje, to ví snad každý.. ale zachytit to a zvýraznit to nejhlavnější - duši.. to se nevidí všade. Zkrátka imprese... tahle fotky a většina dalších z Vašeho alba je založena na prvním dojmu, který nelze ignorovat. Člověk zkrátka musí listovat dál a objevovat novou a novou inspiraci a sílu. Jedno z nejkrásnější alb tady a to bez diskuze. :)

What can anyone say about this piece that has not been said a thousand times before. It brings to mind an old pagan ritual, one performed in the depths of winter begging the gods for the return of spring and life. And the gods are granting it, filtering their life essence through the dead and frozen tendrils of those lain dormant, waking them to a new world and a new life.

Well, that's how I see it.

It's an amazing piece. Truly amazing, and awe-inspiring, and all those words that not matter how you use them just don't fit.

The way you captured the ice makes it look a little like an Impressionist painting (and I'm a big fan of Impressionism). ^___^

I think my favorite thing about this image is it's ambiguity. While I'm aware it is a tree, it could also be a magical underwater world. The frozen groundcover looks like sand and coral and the trees, reaching for the warmth of the sun, could pass for a kelp forest.
The warmth and cold of this drags my eyes all around, but I am constantly finding myself drawn to the center of the image.

Simply a beautifully expose piece.
