    I was out prowling around in the storm today taking some pictures.

    Not a peep.

    I seem to have the death grip of non-commentary surrounding me lately, so my pictures must just be consistently poor or something.

    Anyone?

    I like the image. I would maybe play with the colors. Bring out some blue and crop it - maybe take the tree branches in the lower part out. I tried a fix edit:

    I prefer the original version...I like seeing more of the fencepost in the lower right corner. And manaheim, I love the pic! Such a pretty building, with the fence in front of it, weathering the storm. A lovely capture.

    This is a real nice picture. I love the hint of color given off by the barn and plants. The tree branches add a nice depth and demension to the shot.

    Really nice work.

    Reminds me of roaming around the woods in Massachusetts when I was a kid. Very rural area where I grew up.

    ooo... they put some resizing logic into the site. Weird.

    Anyway...

    Thanks, everyone!

    To Mesrad and everyone who commented on the crop... I actually like Mesrad's version, and I can't decide which color caste I liked better, but I actually toyed with that quite a bit and wound up on the warmer one. I really do like them both.

    Back to the crop... I'm torn on this as well. I like the fence, and I have another shot where there is a lot more of it in the shot, but I also like having the building down and further to the right, as Mesrad has it.

    I actually took some more shots of this scene this morning (without the falling snow, since it stopped)... same general conundrum, though I do like the shot.

    I think what I need to do is go back and pull those damned sticks up and toss them to the side and retake it yet again. :)

    I appreciate all the comments, particularly since I was starting to think "oh man, no comments... the picture must be HORRIBLE". :)

    [It's definitely NOT horrible. I think there are just fewer people online as it gets closer to the holiday.]

    Thanks first of all. The only reason i did the edit is because of the house not being lower. This shot has great potential. You did a good job! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Antarctican!

    No worries, Mersad. I appreciate you taking the time and providing insightful comments and even visual aids. :)

    The composition is good. I think it just needs to be brightened up a bit to make the snow look white like it should. Remember that cameras will meter for (approximately) 18% gray, which makes your snow look gray, dull and boring. Set your meter to overexpose by up to a stop and you'll get whiter snow.

    I like it. Maybe a tiny bit more color where you can see it around the barn would be nice but only because the the tree branches hanging down are so well defined.
