Taken yesterday, right after the first real snowfall of the year. I purposely upped the contrast and made the snow and sky really stark white; I really wanted it to have a harshness to it, since that's usually how I think of winter... Comments? Critiques?

I really like this, Wendy! The comp is great (love the path leading away) and the high contrast works very well.

Where in Canada are you? I'm from Toronto :)

I like it!
Your stark contrasts don't make this particular winter photo look "bleak" though, I think. Bleakness has to do with many "greys" in my estimation, but stark blacks and white whites (suggesting fresh, still clean snow) look GOOD to me!

Hence: this photo looks GOOD to me :D

(I am NOT looking forward to OUR first snow of the year, which - living in the lowlands - may take yet another while, though they have forecast something like "rain gradually becoming snow also in the lowlands" :roll: )

Corinna, your LUCKY to get snow. Us southern californians have to drive all the way to Mt. Whitney if we want to experience snow. :grumpy:

It's not so nice when it's wet snow and you have to spend hours shoveling it out of your driveway since the snowblower can cope with the heavy snow.

;)

Awesome shot

Haha at least my kid self could get a job shoveling snow for people, here the only thing I can really do is have lemonade stands. :lol:

cool shot heh heh...agree with Corinna, the high contrast really appeals and makes the scene look clean and bright. I'm looking forward to my first European winter :)....well first since I was 5 y/o anyway.
