We have a storm coming our way, should hit this weekend, this should put some snow on the mountain, but then we can go days without seeing the top of the mountain.

Haven't seen much snow here yet. Does salt on the roads count? :-D We just had 1/4" of snow with 1" of salt.

Watch out for over-polarized skies in snow shots, people; they can look hideous in one corner easily...

O-K......
And how you avoid that ?
Show me your samples !
Sky color is not even when Sun is present,it gets lighter closer to the Sun .

Pits,

Gets more extreme with the polarizer, is all. Used to be the bane of my existence as an architectural photographer. Was hard to tell I was overpolarizing a corner, in the ground glass. Finally I just started really wasting polaroids, and spotted it that way. You can avoid it by not polarizing, of course. Sometimes cross-polarization works to good effect.

I can't show you any examples because my old work is not digitized and I don't use a polarizer now, don't even own one for this cam.

So,no samples,no experience and we are getting lesson !?
I think polarized sky is cool and is matter of taste :-)

Pits,

No EXPERIENCE? ON what do you base that statement? Sheesh. All I did was comment, and not even directly to you, that we need to be careful not to overpolarize winter skies. This is true, incidentally, because winter skylight is already naturally polarized to a high degree, and the more so the further towards your winter pole you travel.

And for the record, I didn't say polarized skies weren't "cool"; I just pointed out that it's easy to overpolarize one corner, especially with wide angle shots.

I'm sorry I don't have any digitized work from the days when I DID have a polarizing filter, when I was a working photographer. It just so happens I've never used one on my digital cam.

Peace, friend.

Robt.

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

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

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.

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.

I'll give it a go and get back to you,workin at the moment.

And who are you?

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!!!

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 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.

Pits

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

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

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