I awoke this mornning to a dusting of snow on the ground. I spotted in my garden a nice looking rhythm on the back of a bench. Couple shots, cropping and curves, and here you have it, a Dallas Dusting.

See, now there you have it. This was one of my top picks for the challenge. I always end up critiquing the photos that I think were really good to begin with.

Two comments here, really. First -- the shadows on the lower right of the wires. I'm not sure what the background is here, but the shadows blend right into it. I would like to see them pop from the background more -- if for nothing else than to just give a sense of depth. Secondly, and you may think I'm nuts, but for this challenge I think a closer crop on the top and the bottom (so that just the bench back is showing) would be better. This would fill the frame with the "rhythm" that is, after all, the subject.

Nicely done. If you're aching for more snow to shoot, I've got 14 inches on top of 1.5" of ice in my yard. Knock yourself out. BYO shovel. :)

You have a good eye to have noticed the patterns here and you captured it very well and in great contrast. I know I'm so tired of the snow, I'm not really looking at it anymore.

I like the very high contrast. It works in this photo. The lose of detail is OK in this instance.

Nice shot, very rhthymic. I might have cropped the white streak of snow(?) at the bottom.

It has a sort of dark cryptic look to it. I like the texture very much. Good work. 8

snow? looks like corrosion on an underwater fence or something.. however it's still an interesting shot. I like the contrast and BnW

good idea, but it looks like mold on an old wire fence.
