I found this old photo of my neighbours lawn, I had taken a few years ago when I first got the Nikon 4500.

Its only a 3 pixels camera but I often use it as back up. It was a Xmas gift and came with several lens and extra flash so its great to use for experiments, plus the fact that the camera splits in half, which is good for low shots.

Needless to say I had to straighten it, placed the lights on rules of third and converted to B&W and sharpened.

Bonsoir Dot ,
Wow ! let is Snow ! let is snow ! :) une tempête des poteaux que on appel cela par ici à cause que la neige colle après les poteaux. Jolie scène d'hiver en N&B même si il est centré le sujet principal est bien encadrer par les deux arbres . j'aime bien c'est bien vu .
BraVo! Bonne soirée

Bonsoir Dot,

Quelle superbe capture!!!
C'est magiquement beau.
La lumière du lampadaire ajoute
la note féerique à ce tableau de neige.
Bravo. Belle soirée.

Hi Dot,

Converting to B&W was a good idea, since I doubt this had much color to begin with. I'm glad to see that this is an older photo, I think we've all had enough "new" snow this winter. We've had a few good days of melting, but it will still be around for quite some time.

Warm regards,

Hello Dot!
Very very beautiful winter atmosphere, nice perspective, soft image!
All the best!

Very nice idea and realisation.Great winter shot.
Regards Zoran

Uf, Dot, for me a Brazilian and in summer here is not easy understand it! :o)
But is beautiful, only lackind an incursion from any vampire,
Seriously, great post!

Ciao Dot

I saw this picture, I have to fear!
Everything is frozen and super white!
Splendid image with the frozen branches in foreground.
These picture is nice of gray and of excellent presentation.
Very well composition, nice captured too.

Have a nice day,

Hello Dot,
This exceptional image of you.
Very good this particular POV. A winter landscape very beautiful and interesting.
Hopefully come spring. The more quickly the better.
Have a wonderful day,

Bonjour Dot,

It's a hard scene to define. Is day or night? It seems snowing so much it could be night scene with street light creating a white BG even at night. Interesting image typical to our usual winter. Nice work and TFS.

Bonjour Dot.
Une image informatique qui montre bien les conditions climatiques difficiles au moment de la prise de vue de cette photo.
Bonne soiré sous un climat plus tempéré.


Bonjour Dot.
Une belle présentation et compositon,
Excellent point de vue et détails ,
beau contraste en noir et blanc et lumière..
C'est très jolie...

Hi Dot!

I love it! This is an excellent winter scene! This makes a perfect B&W. You sure do have an eye for this hobby!


And the light was... Hi Dot, well it was drab alright ,even at the height of midday still some days like that one will remain bleak at best nonetheless the test was to expose accordingly and my opinion is that you got yourself out of trouble here with skill , i hardly succeed in getting a shot like this right ,hopefully these days are over but i would not count on that until mid-April has arrived, hi hi , good old shot !
Thanks , Carol

Hi Dot!
Fascinating winter view full of snow!
