[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Winter Face” is the name of this photograph and as you can see I am not too pleased. We had a ghastly snow storm which took a lot of cleaning up with the snow blower. When I finished, I turned around the camera and took several shots, this being one. I think it captures my revulsion of snow cleaning. I was totally poisoned by the amount of snow that fell which was 60cm.
This photograph was level adjusted, Sharpened in lab color U. S. M. 80, 1, 0, framed and saved for the web.

Brrr Jim, you really make me shiver... Excellent capture with good saturation and the sharpness is brilliant. I might have cloned out the window (I guess) on the left side, but that's just a minor thing. TFS.

Man do I love this one,
Only the coulors are not cool enoth.
So I put the frame on bw, an the rest you can see on ws.
Hope you don't minde,???
See you on tl.
I hope ones I get as frosen as you look here.
See you on tl.

Very "cool" picture ;-)
We have the same problem right now in Munich, it´s been snowing non stop for almost 2 weeks...
BTW, I couldn´t resist a special workshop too, I hope you won´t mind :)

It must be terribly cold too!! It's a great photo, bright, sharp
and well composed. It never snowed here where I live, but from your photo, I can imagine that cleaning the snow it's not a pleasant thing to do...Nice work!

What a chill. I wander how long were you outside to become so icy? Nice capture.Congratulation.

Jim this looks like you are quite tired, cold and ready to go home, nice shot.
