Re: Nope; but y’kin see it from here.....

Thanks, Chuck, for immediately joining in the spirit of my intent with this image! (I wish I had had the presence of mind to re-touch the ...

The former (universal) IMO tends to relatE to one or more of several crucial factors: composition, contrast, and commonly experienced empathetic feelings. ...

Chromatically, the complementary orange conifer needles and the green and purplish-blue leaves, all entrapped in the almost slate-like neutral grayish blue ice...wonderful! ...and then the influence that all the stuff on the surface of the freezing water had o...
