I really like the second image, too. Almost looks like a color image which quickly fades to BW. Beautiful.

The contrast between the darker right and lighter left sides and the way path along the ducks pull the eye into the photo and tie the two together is what makes #2 work for me.

In #1 the snow is rendered dark to the point of looking unnatural and that impression distracts from enjoying the content of the scene. I played around with it quickly using two different layers, adding contrast to the midtones on the top in the trees and lightening the snow in the foreground in the highlights and midtones.

Bob; I am not attracted to #1 at all (compositionally)... #2 is a keeper just as is...

The first seems to lack interest. I like the second. The color treatment is appealing and the geese add interest, although shooting a little sooner or later, a few seconds either way, could have separated the overlapping geese.

We never get snow here. I am jealous of the opportunity to get these shots. I like both. But I really like #2.

To all,

Thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments.

FWIW, this was an infrequent, although not rare snow event. The first images, #1 and others from that set were taken ~6:30AM (I think the color version probably works better), #2 was at a different location about 2 hours later.

As is common, it sounded as if one were at a skeet range from the reports of limbs breaking under the weight of the snow. And typical for this area (east-central Georgia), after the low-level clouds cleared, nearly all of the snow had melted by 2PM.

Having grown up in the NE and lived in Syracuse, NY during grad school, I must admit at this point in my life I find this type of snow storm much more agreeable than those of my youth

Greg, we've not seen any snow accumulation since. Fortunately, the precipitation was snow, and not ice/freezing rain. OTOH we lack rain as well.

regards,

Bob
