    Perfecto:thumbup: Nothing to critique on my end. I actually like number 7, its got alot of character and it's candid.

    Very nice series;)

    Thanks Ava. :)

    Be careful what you wish for Darrell..ha ha ;) The snow is kinda nice at the beginning of winter, but then by March or even April, all you see is 8-10 foot snow piles everywhere. What I wouldnt give for a little bit of 70 degree weather right now. hee hee.

    Anyway, thanks for the very nice words. :)

    Thank you so much Melis. Your kind words mean a great deal to me! :)

    The pictures are quite nice.
    There seems to be halos from burning in the snow around several of the figures.

    Hi Lew!

    Yes, I have to agree. I think I went a bit heavy on the vignette this time. Thanks for pointing that out. I appreciate your comments very much. :)

    I hate to be #10 to comment and the first one to say something negative but you are a straight-shooter and will take the comments in the way they are meant.

    No problem. It wasn't negative at all. You know I always welcome critiques. Its the only way I can improve.

    I have one more I want to post. This was mom's favorite.

    Thanks for looking. :)

    I meant to reply to these sooner. Sorry. I try to reply to all posts on my threads within a reasonable time frame.

    Thanks.

    Hi mdw,
    I used my 28-135mm lens. Focal length was at 100-135mm most of time for shallow dof. Lighting is all ambient. It was an overcast day, and with the snow on the ground, I had plenty of nice natural light to work with. On occasion, I will use a reflector outside if necessary.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Thanks so much cindy. I truly appreciate your nice words! :)
