Not my very first snow picture, but my favorite from the first time I shot snow pics.

Here is my first snow shot. It is not scenic, but the mountains are usually not visible from my neighborhood in southern California (about 5 miles from the beach). When we get rain it clears out the air and there is a view.

Dufus,

I don't know how much, if anything, you cropped from your original exposure, but is it possible to rotate this so the light standards are true verticals and still crop effectively (not too tight)?

It's a wonderful shot but that bugs me, that it's leaning over to the right like that.

Robt.

My first try at night with my new cam. Liked the result.


That literally is a "cool" shot! Your tones are great and doing this at night gives it real atmosphere. Your angle and clarity are both great for this shot.

Fantastic shot. Would you consider tweaking up contrast on the water?

I like the use of contrast, lines and angles. The desaturated color also makes the well-placed table stand out nicely. I found the swingset a bit of a distraction, mostly the color. Could the color on the swingset be removed so it fades / blends with the background?

Also like the color of the floor and the leaves.

I'm obviously no one. Don't worry about it. Thanks for the friendly welcome to new participants.

Had our windows and patio door replaced. We got most of it done before the snow hit, but the day of heavy snow they were replacing the patio door. When the took out the old one, I really had a room with a view. Too bad about the clutter on the patio, but I still thought it was kinda cool. Reminded me of the doors opening up in the movie "White Christmas" We ended up with about 20" of snow before it was all said and done. This was just at the start of the snow fall.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm still waiting for the first measurable snowfall here. So far nothing more than just a dusting that the wind had blown away in a matter of minutes. And there is no sign of snow in the next week...temps in the 50s can't figure out what I've done to have such warm weather but hey I won't complain!!!

I'm extremely familiar with bear's work. A retired professional; an artist.

When he offers advice, it's well to listen.


Ok,thanks!

The viewer's eye is first drawn to the area of highest contrast in an image. In yours (the castle where you used the branch as a frame) there are two sections of sky above the branch that grab the eye, pulling attention away from the castle below the branch. The function of a frame-within-a-frame is to keep the viewers attention from drifting off the image.

If you cropped this, removing some of the top and right of the image so those blue patches of sky were not in the image, there would be nothing to compete with the main focuss (subject) of the image: the castle and the lovely surrounding detail.

Lovely image of the castle. If you cropped out the distracting skies above the branch, I think it would keep the viewer's interest focussed on the main subject.

Nice work.

Not exactly sure what you mean Robert,
Thanks,
Paul.
