Snowy night       ©2013 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ200       9th place, 102 points
1/8s, f2.8, ISO 2000, 38mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Used Topaz to de-noise, cloned out a minor distraction, converted to B&W, resized for entry       Extra Info: It's 9:00 p.m. and I'm outside in the middle of a park in a raging blizzard, bare hands freezing to the tripod, so I can get a shot for the challenge. To quote a favourite movie title of mine - "The Gods must think we're crazy".

    Love the textures and the composition, especially the snow covered posts in the foreground. Wish my camera could do this at 2000iso although I think a lower iso and longer exposure would have been better - if you could stop the tripod from shivering that is. Regardless, it still transmits that wonderful quite feeling that you get on a really snowy night

    Did well with a night shot here, I can tell it was. Like the tones in the snow.

    Thanks Oldseadog, Dogma02 and old Finn - glad you liked it. ISO 2000 certainly added to the noise, but there was also a lot of snow being blown around, so I'm pretty impressed with the way the camera handled it.

    Seems, that ISO 2000 gives too much noise. Anyway, good work in the darkness. In my favs.

    Nice image. I know that feeling of trying to get a photo when Celsius and Fahrenheit come close together. Get out of the car grab the shot and jump back in the car.

    I am in awe of the events leading up to getting the picture. you have a a very good result as the time delay has reduced the movement of the snow /rain uring the exspoure. May the gods shine on your entry

    Hey Jade - I definitely would have preferred to take this in daylight, but work has a habit of getting in the way, and I knew the snow on the trees wouldn't stay around for long.

Special guest judge - thanks for your comments - it's really wonderful of you to do this for us

    First Impression - 3/5
Contrast - 2/5
Composition - 4/5
Tone / Texture - 4/5

Good composition, but I think it lack a little contrast.

    Sorry about the hands but I'm not sure why this was shot at night.
