My first snow shot of the season. I love taking my camera out while it's snowing.(in this case it was a blizzard) I keep a cloth over my camera to keep the snow off the lens. Auto levels, converted to black & white that was it...

A wonderful winter capture! It seems really painted!
Very, well done! :)

this very much looks like a painting, and almost appears to be a mirror image/reflection. well done exposure. top notch.

I've come back to look at this picture about 5 times today. It captures jst what I love about snow - how it changes the world and creates new shapes and lines. The air itself is transformed. So now I must make it a favorite so I can always find it!

This is a very subtle effect of the combination of dof and the building opaqueness that comes with distance as the snow slices the visible spectrum. A little work of art.

What a great photo. The composition is great, the texture and soft focus of snow and tree in the background makes it feel like a painting. Any ideas on how to improve this picture? The tree in the foreground might be a little on the bright side imho. GJ

Really cool shot, good composition and setting. Appears really artificial/processed to me though, which kills a lot of the mood.
12/04/2004 12:57:23 PM
Very nice picture and snow gives interesting effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2004 11:43:32 PM
Absolutely beautiful. The effect is almost that of a charcoal drawing making the view feel in another world.

Beautiful work. Very good title. The repetition of forms is fantastic, the composition is very good and the BW suits perfectly. I can't understand why this should be validated.

very nice, did you freeze shooting it? Wonderful drawing feel to it.

12/03/2004 02:40:48 PM
beautiful! bumped up after validation (not my challenge)

Absolutely exquisite use of black and white, and presumably a little gaussian blur. The composition is pure art and the seven theme is apparent but subtle. A ribbon winner if ever I saw one! 10

Amazing, it look sooo classic. Love the way of capture of the falling snow.

Neat. Simply love it.

This is an interesting photo despite the fact that they're are not 7 of your subject. I like the look of the snow falling, gives it this kind of painted feel. But were you thinking there were 7 branches? I don't think that enough of the one branch shows to really count it as a 'main subject'. I do love the shot though. ~Heather~
12/01/2004 11:39:51 PM
I really like the sumi painting effect. The sharp tree inthe foreground is a fantastic counterpoint to the snow blurred tree behind. Lighting feels a little weird, though. Good luck in the voting.
12/01/2004 10:04:09 PM
Seven connection a bit weak, but what a fantastic shot...10

Great photo, really like it, especially this snow storm winter mood emphesized by overexposing... Composition is perfect, 10 from me...

Outstanding (in the cold :) composition. 10.

i'd hang this in my living room. beautiful. some of the highlights in the snow could be toned down a little, but still a solid shot. one of my top three so far...

Absolutely beautiful photo. I love the composition, the contrast and the mood. Perfect 10. Great job on this capture. I hope you didn't freeze your butt off too much!

Really wonderful composition....everything about it is good. I am not quite so sure about the 7's here, tho.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2004 06:51:21 AM
Burrrr! This looks so cold. I love it. It almost looks like a pencil drawing. Good luck!

not that I would have counted to seven here, if it wasn't for the challenge title, but a very nice shot - 7
12/01/2004 01:20:21 AM
Wow, stunning shot! And you took it while it was snowing! I've not been able to get a decent snow shot while it's falling...... 10

No texture. Looks artificial.
12/01/2004 12:39:03 AM

I like this. It's pusing the theme a little - you can barely see the 4th branch on the front tree, but I like the overall effect of the image.
