[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just a short distance from Glacier Park in Montana and bit to the east out in the prairies of eastern Montana on state high way 2 between Cut Bank and Shelby Montana on the south side of the road lies this little homestead which is demonstrative of the vagaries of Montana's climate. With intermittent droughts and markets it's a hard life and difficult to make a go of it. These remnants are a monument to this hard struggle.

Olá Giovanni,
uma bela paisagem rural aqui, que parece até uma pintura. Boas cores e contraste aqui, além de uma qualidade excelente. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,


Looks like a little heavy on the processing. But the image is very rustic and appealing. I like the result of your vision. Nice


Bonjour, cher Giovanni,
Très belle mise en image d'un paysage qui semble extrait d'un film américain.
L'on sent le froid nous envahir.
Une très belle composition.

Hi Giovanni,
Nice photo well composed with the abandoned homestead and the fence in the FG, good effect with snow, good management for light capture and colors, tfs.

Ciao Giovanni
che paesaggio surreale, sembra un fotogramma tratto da un film di Jack London.
Molto bello, mette anche timore.

I like this landscape, it's what I imagine about Montana,
very good shot,
ciao, Giacomo

A HDR effect , that provides a feeling of painting . The compposition is gorgeous , and the golden grass emerging from the white snow is a great feature of the picture.

Hello Giovanni,
A beautiful landscape and the weather condition were wonderful, I like the mix of snow and yellow grass as well as the dark clouds and the soft sunlight from the right. The composition is very good with the old barn well included on the left hand side.

Hello, Giovanni!

It looks like an abandoned place, which gives a very interesting atmosphere to the scene, especially with these dark clouds in the sky! The house is perfectly placed in the image! Very good colors and depth! Wonderful job!

Hello Giovanni,

A nice snowy area with the barn in bad condition.
This does my think to the old Cowboy movies with John Wayne
Wonderful panorama about the area.
Perspective and depth are perfect, also an excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Oi, Giovanni!

É uma paisagem bem interessante e fotogênica. O contraste da foto está perfeito. A foto possui um certo efeito esfumaçado que ficou bem legal. Bom ponto de vista e enquadramento.

Ciao Giovanni,un HDR molto spinto ma senza dubbio vincente,abbiamo visto tanta neve ma poche elaborazioni in questo sistema,per cui la tua foto va premiata non solo per la vista ma anche per l'originalita'. Buona giornata e complimenti,Luciano

Hello Giovanni,
What a stupendous photo! This is a terrific scene made beautiful by your post-processing, not to mention the pleasant composition.

even looking at the picture i feel the cold (winter is coming to New Zealand)
