I shot straight up into the nightime snowy sky with the flash. I was very suprised to see this shot. The spot that looks like a bright moon really is a huge snowflake/ snowblob. I took many shots trying to get more shots of SNOWBLOBS, but this is the ONLY one I could get with such a gigantic snowflake.

I'm not sure how to interpret this shot as having a theme of 'weather'. - setzler

I don't get it. Border looks to fake. I'm guessing you tried to capture snow as it was falling and one refleted extra brightly?

good job, nice pic

Not sure what Im looking at here. I assume the big round thing is the flash.

Interesting Idea, but not an interesting Picture. Is this boarder legal? I was under the impression it wasn't, but i could be wrong. I think the boarder is too thick, and too complex (too much 3d effects) (4)

nice sharp image, good work

what the hell is this? That border/frame is crazy dude..
04/15/2003 01:11:35 PM
The frame is too elaborate for the pic.

Not quite sure what I'm looking at, in all honesty. The border seems a bit overkill, too, I'm afraid...

Interesting idea, somehow this image looks more like a starfield with a sun in the background. How did you take this one?

I would have had trouble understanding this one without the title as a clue. If there had been something identifiable to bring your subject into context, it may have provided the extra push to make this photo a real winner.

Huh? What is it?
04/14/2003 07:34:20 PM
Is this more like a snow job?
04/14/2003 01:51:03 PM
Nice title!

Not keen on the border(s) - also i can't really work outn what the shot is of, aside from a night sky. Sorry 4.
