    Beautiful treatment of this image with a lovely mood and detail in the rocks, shrubbery and tree. Frost or snow definitely adds nice contrast and texture.
    Suggestions:
    In such a romantic image, the water fountain seems a big garish. I think you would also have a lovely image if you cropped it out.
    There is a school of thought that a vignette helps to draw the eye in, but in a landscape, you are obscuring detail, as you are here on both left hand corners. And there's nothing to really draw your eye to, i.e. nothing strong in the centre. I don't recommend vignettes in a case like this; you really lose some of the nice detail in the image.

    Nicely balanced photograph, and here the fog creates a strong "blank" background. The balance of the tree branch and the fountain is great.
    Suggestions:
    No suggestions for the photograph.

    Strengths:
    A very elegant composition; the stillness of the fog is beautifully represented by this quiet, almost Japanese-garden looking composition. Nice use of the warm monochrome.
    Suggestions:
    I don't have any suggestions. This works well.
