To answer Ambaker's question.
I guess he used the flash to fill the darkness. There had to be at least starlight for backlighting. The fill flash just overfilled the ambient back lighting. It is a great picture, it only needs to be percieved as fill-flash in some way, by the mojority of voters.

Congratulations on the yellow! I was wondering how this image would do in the voting. Strictly speaking, I did not see this as fill flash; as fill flash is normally understood to be a light to fill the shadows where a subject is back-lit.

That being said, I gave you a 9, as it is a very strong image. You definetly captured the feeling of the snowfall. Excellent job all they way around.

I'd love to know how you captured the tracks of the snow, using the flash at 1/200.

The challenge was fill flash not all flash and this image (although a wonderful and beautifull) getting a ribbon simply show the ignorance of the majority of DPC voters.

Sorry.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR RIBBON for such a brilliant photograph .. dark and atmospheric and the snow flakes look almost like meteorites heading towards earth .. amazing effect coz i'd imagine that they'd be tapered the opposite way if they were falling .. very strange and otherworldly with such a nearly mundane subject .. WOW .. !!! ..:)..

This is a really interesting shot. I like the snow streaks in the sky. The lighting on the tractor is a little off I think but it matches the challenge perfectly. This is really cool. Nice work.

What a bizarre group of photos. Maybe it's just me but I think most of them are off the mark. This one though - WHOA and WOW...!!! This should be the winner and it's one of the rare 10's for this challenge - imho. Excellent: 10
