It's cool to see all these old Nikon shots and the extensive use of filters. Sure you are in the right forum?

Hello FFN!

Lovely photo, almost like a painting.
Out of curiosity: can you recall, how the angle of light was? (about 30°, 45°, etc.)
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you EVERYone for the kind comments. Here is another shot from this AM @ -12F.

BTW that is indeed a very impressive frost photo and having only semi-seriously ever tried a few, and just recently, I'd love to hear how it's done. Here's one of my attempts.

Jack,

It is best to shoot the window in the AM or PM with the sun at a low angle to the side. If you have tripod or camera that does in-camera HDR, take 3-5 shots and merge them in PS into a single HDR photo. Then adjust the colors/temp/brightness/contrast to suit. Use artistic filters in PS to make it look more like a painting.

Jack,

Here is an edit of your shot that I made in PS along the lines I described - except the HDR stuff.

Its a beautiful painting. Which platform have you used for this? Looking forward to see more of your works here :)
Most of my images at MudbrookPhoto.Com are the result of a multi step process: 1) HDR stack of 3 shots, 2) contrast, color, saturation, sharpening and Levels adjustments in PSCC, 3) Filter Forge for artsy stuff.
