    Congratulations!
This looks nice too, but the colors aren't as impressive to me and especially the wheelbarrow took away the festive touch. Sorry!

    Congrats Jade. From now on I will look for a wheelbarrow with a pumpkin in it at New Years :-) Well dank was not what I smelled when my altimeter indicated 1200 ft above the ground and I realized that I was looking at the tops of the trees but the hair and heart bit were right on ! LOL LOL I have learned first hand the true meaning of dank - one day I shall explain it to you and you will love the word even more.

    Michael, please don't apologize; I love these sorts of comments since I get some decent feedback from a fresh perspective. (And "dank" is a favourite word of mine - from a report of a pilot who identified the proximity to disaster by the smell of the dank earth and the comment "did you ever notice how the earth greens the obscurity when you are near her?" All true to my experience - not a thing you rely upon but something that stands the hair up on your neck and sends your heart racing when you experience it at an unexpected moment.) Anyway, see my comment to elliott below who suggested much as you did.

    The dank pavement in the foreground spoils this for me. It takes away any feeling of warmth or celebration. I think a shot at the edge of the ice and past the wheelbarrow? Maybe just a shot of the people on the rink? It's easy to criticize when one is not on the spot I know - and apologize for that.

    fc - As you can see on my comment to elliott, this was to be a test shot. The wheelbarrow really symbolizes the coming of the New Year, don't you think? ?-)

    Happy New Year, elliott! This was my first shot of the night (no pun intended! - about 6:30 p.m. long before the partying started) and I was most bothered by the quirky wheelbarrow. For me less foreground and a closer shot were both problematic at this shutter speed. It is in shots like these that a HQ DSLR really outperforms my FZ-30.

    nice shot. a little closer in with some definition on the people would make this 'greeting card' quality. top three. happy new year. el
