  #123 Best of the Challenge Period
Entry 21 of 25
   
 
so much snow such a little shovel       ©2013 forkcandles
Panasonic DMC-FZ100       21st place, 32 points
1/125s, f3, ISO 100, 34mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cropped straightened resize to new size       Extra Info: following advice on a forum from MEPO this is taken one step out onto my balacony after 6inches of snow fell in 3 hours. The city came to a halt only large vechiles moved around. The small figure is one of the many people who volunteered to be snow wardens keeping the walkways free of snow and gritting to reduce slipping. Having pictured the scene left her to her labours and made a hot toddy when she came by to see me. a hot toddy is warm milk rum whisky and port warmed in a glass. ps the milk is optional

    thanks for those comments .
mrsawyer . see outttakes
doto the reason for the small figure is to relate to her size and the amount of snow.
timing was of the essence here as i saw more people coming and it was very cold

    Really liked this shot fc - Wouldn't you know you'd live in a housing development with its own bridge!!

    Don't know if you had the option, but framing the tree further to the left may have helped this entry. As is, the tree is a bit overwhelming.

    The dusting of snow adds a beautiful fragility to the photo. I'm sure the hot toddy was much appreciated.

    I've looked at about 1/2 the entries and I think this may be my Favorite! Well done composition, the softness works very well with the snow, my eye goes in a well ordered pattern thru out the photo. (long winded for very pleasant on the eye) I don't know if it would've hurt this but I wonder what uping the viberance just a tiny bit would've done on this shot. But over all heading to the top of my fav's

    a nice winter scene, but there are too many elements in the shot, and the 'human element' which by your description is an important part of the shot is lost and not prominent enough, maybe a closer and narrower composition would have been better.

    Dang it looks totally frigid there! Brrrrr! I want to see another shot in summer and spring to see what that tree looks like.

    Never take advice from Mepo~! (Just kidding!) Quite a scene you have right out the balcony.
