serious snow

I think I heard some complaints about snow. Well, I was up north over Christmas and was out and about. Got some photos, too, surprisingly enough.

Comments welcome (yes, I know there's a lot!). I don't normally do B&W, but it seemed to suit these and several of these are HDR.






















one more, from the same park as the previous:

Now that looks mighty cold! The 2nd one especially looks like the north pole, aside from the trees

My favourite is probably the 2nd to last shot, nice conversion and grain. I do find the leaf to be a little too central though.

Better stop compaining about the cold here, Bret! Particularly now the snow has gone. Some interesting shots here. I like the mono oak leaves and thaty odd mostly out of focus picture.
Best wishes,

Andrew

the "odd" one was not what I was looking for at all, but it turned up. I was processing and tried this - I like the feel it gives, I'd almost like to see it used as a still in the introduction to a horror movie....

I understand about the oak leaves being "too central"; I'll take a look-see and check if I have another version.

The first three are all HDR as they didn't work as single shots; taken at around 11am, with the sun 'rising', the glow was too bright. The first one is at sunset at 2:45 or so.

OTOH, these have helped convince me I can't get what I want out of the 10-24 - so I don't know what I'm going to do next.

The second last is the best for me.

Might try that one on a rental and see if I prefer it over a 10-17...
