[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We were only supposed to get one inch or less of snow yesterday, but wound up with close to six inches. I got my hair cut after lunch, and as I was leaving I remembered this produce stand and thought it might make a nice subject for a snow photo.

I had my Nikon 4300 with me, so I stopped for a few shots. As you can see, it was snowing very hard.

PP: Crop, curves and USM.

Thanks for viewing and have a nice Sunday.

Hi Werner

A good catch of the blizzard, and kudoes to you, for going outside to photograph it. I'd be inclined to stay indoors! Good sharpness, color & framing. Have a good week!

Hi Werner - Amazing shot of the heavy snowfall. I also like the white border. It's almost like looking through a snowy window.

Hi Werner
A hard winter indeed!

The winter is beautiful with the snow,no?
Congratulation for this lovely capture!

Hi, Werner. you did capture the snow falling. it is difficult to capture these scenes due to poor visibilty. Nice PP work for framing making the composition look good.Cheers and have a nice Sunday.

I like the winter capture and your is a typical shot!

Hello Werner! I see that you have a 'canadian' winter over there!:-) Good scene of the blizzard, very well captured, we're almost there with you. Well done!


Hey Werner!

I love the hard snow photo. Wow, it was really coming down. When I first saw this produce stand, I thought it was a mobile charcoal grill. They've got a nice setup here. Great job of capturing the snow falling, and your composition is very good. I like the white vignetting and placement of the main subject. This hard snow looks good with the evergreen BG!


Hello Werner,

The white vignetting suits the mood very well,good POV with nice framing,amazing snowy shot with superb details and beautiful sharpness,nice contrast colors with beautiful clarity of everything,very well captured and an elegant winter shot,well done my friend :)

Best Regards,
Mushtaq Hussain

Hi Werner,
Ahh a familiar scene to me. Seems we have a lot of 'closed for the winter'. Great presentation. Nice capture of this winter scene. Good control of your settings. TFS Julie
