    A delayed winter that I feared would never come, but it finally arrived with a vengeance.

    #1 is really well composed it has a lot going on which is good.. I would crop that top branch in frame out.. but really I like it a lot.

    #2 has a classic winter feel to me. As someone who has only been in very little snow a few times.. I must go and experience a winter like this myself :)

    Nice shots, and glad I don't live there tbh. Without even seeing the location I thought Russia.

    Although I don't like winter too much, is a good feeling to have the real change between the 4 seasons. Nice shots.

    What place in Russia/Ukraine are these from?

    #2 has a nice feeling. Makes me want to go there right now!

    I must make it to the snow one day. Never seen it before, except in the moving pictures.

    Yeah I was going to ask if they were film as well. They look like film shots.

    Perhaps due to some slight green tinge ? (probably purposefully done).

    I like 1 and 2. My eye is drawn to the top right corner of 1 though. I kind of want more of the OOF tree/branch in the photo.

    They definitely look like film to me, so either well done on the pp or just well done on good pictures:D

    #1 2 3 are awesome

    Number one is excellent. Great contrast, palette and composition.

    Thanks all. Yes, your suspicions have been confirmed. They were all shot on a Nikon FE, 50mm f/1.8 and a roll of Agfacolor 200 (that expired in 2008!)

    No PP at all, just enough crop to remove the black borders from the scan.

    Yes, somewhere in the former USSR. So the last few days it's been just above zero, snow melting and the roads all slushy. But mother nature has a habit of trolling, and once again the white powder is descending from the heavens once again.

    The viewfinder is a lie! For the life of me, there seems to be a certain element of randomness when you're pointing up or down, a portion somehow becomes cropped for reasons unknown. I'm not exactly sure what's the viewfinder coverage (can't seem to find the information like on DSLR's) and as a result from being somewhat extreme with my framing some shots have missed important elements. Oh well, c'est la vie.

    Cheers. Where are your pictures? I demand them at once!
