Judges Comment

Bad weather once again creates those wonderful soft tones and colours which lend themselves so well to that minimal composition. Well spotted, beautifully taken and sensitively developed. Love this.

Photographers Comment

Many thanks for the acknowledgement and your kind comments. The photo was taken during a blizzard that closed in very quickly, obscuring everything around me except my dog, my camera, and the tree in front of us. The location was less exotic than it may appear. Central Park, New York. Without the snow, you'd be able to see the buildings of mid-down in the distance. The camera was an OM-D E-M5 with a Leica DG Summilux 25mm f1.4 lens, slightly underexposed to accommodate the snow. Thank you again.
