First snow storm

Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

Please also ensure that you have a meaningful location included in your profile. Please refer to the FAQ for details of what "meaningful" is.

First snow storm of the winter in Michigan. And yes, I braved the frigid cold for the viewing pleasure of DSLRusers forum... :biglaugh:

No images are showing for me.

Looks like they're being blocked somewhere ...

I'm still trying to figure out how to get full size photos to load and no thumbnails etc.

These are all great. There's something very charming about these sorts of houses in the USofA, and especially so in a snow-filled setting. It's obviously cold, but the homes seem to be inviting you in.

I'm intrigued by the sign in the background, out front of the house, in the image of the truck's tray. (#3) I love the composition of this, with the house as the secondary subject, but the writing on the sign appears to be backwards?

I would love to see one a home here, around sunset, lights on (warm colouring from the lights) out in the snow.

When I used to shoot weedings (or weddings; it was one of those sorts of events) I used to read (well, look at the pretty pictures) on how to market oneself as a wedding photographer, showing techniques, locations, setups, etc. One thing that I noticed was the inherent prettiness of the churches, which - in these books - were not surrounded by the detrious of suburbia. A simple church with a steeple, on a slight hill, grass field all the way around, no fence, no other buildings .... It upset me because there's nothing like that (to my knowledge) in Sydney. Makes one's task so much easier when the surrounds cooperate

Thanks Gary. Funnily enough despite their being 197 billion people in America, there's so much open space. Rural Michigan is a case in point. Beautiful spot. Classic country churches, full of ye-old-world-charm houses complete with basements and attics. Deer. And snow. The only problematic part of photographing these places in winter is the weather. It really is perishingly cold at times. (I enjoy the cold more than the heat). Keeping lens etc fog, snow, moisture free is a job.
