Snow in April! That's the way it is in Toronto this year! Although I'm tired of the cold, why not use the opportunity to shoot some photos?
This was in downtown at midnight.

Excellent shot. I really like the night-time look. Very well exposed.

This is very nice - the lighting is wonderful. Could be a little better if the falling snow were a tad more visible, but this is still very, very nice. Well done.

nice job

i gave this 10 without second thought, or even one second of thought for that matter. the lighting, the snow falling in front of the lamp, the b&w, the whole feel... everything works so nicely in this photo :)

Nice work. The lamppost really gives the picture a strong focal point

I do believe this is the best I've seen. The crisp detail conotes the crispnes of the surrounding air.

Nice Shot. Good contrast, but could be a little brighter. I would have added a simple white boarder here.

Lovely and fits the challenge. This park is a welcom place even with snow! You've shown thorugh tones and implied lines a gentle, beautiful, and oddly enough, warm look at snowy weather. 10!

Beautiful shot, it's hard to believe that it is still winter somewhere in the world at this moment. I hope it warms up for you soon! The streaming effect of the snow in the lamp is very effective. I particularly like the way the tree in the foreground on the right and the branch on the left are illuminated and highlighted by the light.

I've wanted to get a good night shot myself. You have a nice composition and the lighting is good. An angle that didn't include the building would have been more pleasing if possible. Good work!

I can't believe this is a real picture. It's absolutely amazing. I think it is real... What a truely awsome shot. GREAT job, 10.

The light makes this a stronger photograph

Very nice picture, however I would have liked to see it cropped a little closer. The lamp is the main subject so cropping a little to the left of it, keeping the areas below and above, but then extending right to include the illuminated portion of the bush. I'd like to see you try that and see what you think. The light source (the lamp) shows the sleet falling which I think is the dramatic part. All the wasted space takes away from the drama. As you can probably tell, I've spent a lot of time on this photo...I really like it.
