As said yesterday, I am sure those students must be ready for winter - but prefer to walk there when its all in green, Murat.
The trails on the white carpet added good sense of depth to the freezing scene.
Have a nice and warm new day,

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Un très bon reportage sur cette université. C'est toujours intéressant et enrichissant d'apprendre l'historique de ces lieux d'étude.
Une jolie image avec un non moins bel édifice.

Hi Murat

I like the intersecting paths cleared through the snow. The man adds a focal point and animates the scene. Good sharpness and a soft, diffused light. Tfs!

Hello Murat,
A good view of the snowy fields in the park towards the grand hall in the background. Once again a good inclusion of a lonely passer-by.

Hello Murat,
It's a nice photo but to me the McKee Hall is of less importance. I am mainly attracted by the pattern created by the paths through the fairly thick snow and the well placed person approaching the center of the composition. The building among the trees makes a nice background though.
Kind regards,

Hello Murat,
I like the presence of the man striding across the frame. The cleared path reaching from the bottom of the frame makes a good lead-line towards the focal point offered by the hall of residence. The wintry conditions are very well evoked.

A very nice winter scene, it seems that everyone else stayed in the house, only one man wanders alone in the snow

Hello Murat,

beautiful winter image, I like the composition with the snow and the man passing by, it is a nice postcard, well seen,

Best regards,


Olá, Murat!

Mias uma vez o caminho adiciona uma profundidade interessante e possui uma cor que contrasta com a neve. As árvores desfolhadas completam a atmosfera.
Boa foto!
