Dear All,

During our visit 4 years ago to our very good friends, we planned to visit the Castle of Baden-Baden located on a hill. The weather was cold and as we started to walk for the castle it started snowing.

After we walked up to the top of the hill and having paid a visit to the castle, we left the impressions of our "shoes" in the thick layer of snow over there, hoping that they may preserve there if we are lucky but if those show impressions will not be there the next time we will visit together to the same place again, then we will be even luckier as by that time we will be having a stronger bond of friendship.

-> Shoe impressions go away but the memories left behind, was my personal message through my contribution to Friday's theme!

Hope you like this shot.

Have a nice weekend.

Viele Grüße

This is really nice. Will give more punch if you add more contrast on this one :)

Hi Paras.

I love the unique idea and take on this weeks theme, impressions....nice touch.
As a couple have said, you possibly needs an extra umpth as the inprints appear pale, perhaps the idea of upping the contrast as Yan has suggested may well help. I will try a WS perhaps.
I so like the idea and the fore different prints, so good we are all different.

Stv ;o))

So, you've been ready for this theme for 4 years? The impressions are amazingly clear! Nice capture with good details. I like the soft lighting. Well done, tfs.

Hello Paras, at first I thought that the impressions were in sand,but on reading your notes I realised my mistake.
I like the idea especially as the imprints are all quite different.
What did the shot look like in colour,as I see that you converted to b/w?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Paras,
Your idea is at the top when it comes to originality!
Excellent details on the imprints. I thought they were actually the bottoms of shoes!

Hi Paras...cute creative shot...nice work.


Hi Paras,
Memories [ good & bad] sure last forever.Solids shoeprints with good detail and overall smooth texture.Decision to convert to black & white worked well.

Hi Paras, you always have these great ideas - this is a very good and creative presentation for the Friday Theme.
Snow will not last long but memories - if you want it or not - are there for ever.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and contribution - liebe Gruesse und einen schoenen Sonntag - Monika

Baden-Wurttemberg, Titisee, Freburg .... casino.
Great excursion between cold and giacciati lakes surrounded by pine trees.
Always meaningful pictures, and high scenic representation.,
