I'm lucky enough to know many talented people. I think my buddy Matt's photos of Hopkinton State Park certainly exemplify what I mean. Anyone who's photographed in New England during the winter knows that it's not easy. Flat skies wash out easily, particularly when a reflective layer of snow covers everything. Matt certainly found good light and took advantage of it.
Check out more of Matt's photos over on his Flickr page or his Tumblr where you can view them at larger sizes.
