Overcast and light flurries were forecasted. You have to look very closely to see the snow falling due to the dull sky. This photo was taken in colour and wasn't changed to BW so you can see how dull it was.

Brrrr.... Tonal range you have captured definitely conveys a distinct feeling. However, I'm not sure the off-level horizon works very well. (While the tree in the foreground appears perfect, I find the buildings in the distance to be somewhat distracting due to their not being level.) Just my opinion, though!

would love if the horizon wasn't tilted - I feel everything is sliding off to the left

Very pretty picture. The tree looks vertical but the horizon is slanted to the left. If the horizon and the fence lines were parrrallel to the bottom edge, I feel it would have been a more pleasing to the senses. I also thiink a little more of the fore ground would have added a sense of what the weather was like.

I'm glad you pointed out that it's not black & white. I forgot how dreary it gets up there sometimes. Nice balance in this photo. The tree and fence stand out well with the objects in the background.

Very interesting!

I can't believe its not butter, I mean black and white! :) That's definitely weather!

The horizon is a little tilted though..makes the picture slightly awkward.

I don't know where you live, but I'm never coming to visit! Great shot. 7.

good job, nice idea

Have you had tons of people commenting on the fact that the horizon is off and would be a better photo if you made sure it was parallel to the bottom of the frame? Even so, the picture has great atmosphere and reminds me why I now live where there is no real winter. :)

Nice Photo, but it's not straight.

Excellent exposure, that IS bad weather! The only disturbing part is the horizon is crooked.

It's a shame that the horizon is at a strange angle!

Would have been awesome had the shot been leveled out a bit. I feel like I'm sliding out of my chair as I view this, I'm afraid...

strange tilt that would be very difficult to correct for this challenge

It's a "little" bit tilted to the left.

can really see the weather in this photograph
04/14/2003 05:29:39 PM
Good focus on the weather, but why is the photo crooked? Was it intentional?

I like the texture of this photo.
04/14/2003 12:59:49 PM
Thanks for clarifying not B&W -- that adds a point. :)
04/14/2003 12:40:04 PM

Horizon not level. Its quite brave to try and show a heavily overcast day.

Good idea to point out this is a colour shot - you could definitely miss that! Pretty grey place then hey? Effective shot (if kinda depressing :) ). 7.
