Snowy rail



 I shot this at Peace Valley Park in the midst of a snowstorm.  This wooden railing is part of a bridge that crosses the Neshaminy, which feed Lake Galena.

I like how the snow was flying around.

 I played with this as B&W, but the 'color' adds a subtle touch to the shot.  I presented both, I'd love to hear your opinions.

Canon EF 24-105mm L f4 IS USM lens
45mm Focal Length
Exposure 1/80 sec @ f5.6

Curves adjusted for contrast

B&W; Maybe crop out the bottom a bit. The top has both movement and the focal point!

Supposedly there's more of that white stuff coming around the end of this week. We'll have to wait and see.

Wow, i love that b/w Wayne. I can never do the same as this. You're great.

Dot said...

I actually like the b/w myself...a little more contrast in that one especially in the grain of the wood. I love snow...it's so beautiful!

Hi, Wayne. I like these (and I agree about the b&w). Such a sense of texture in the wood and dynamic movement in the snow.

Mike,

Thanks for visiting and the feedback! Maybe I should call you Dr. Crop ;-) Your last crop call was right on the $$.

Woody said...

Hi Marka,
I'll believe the weatherperson when the ground is white!

Woody said...

Pacey,
You're making me blush! Thank you!

Woody said...

Dot,
I'm still undecided. The color one has some 'warmth' and the B&W seems harsh. Harsh is probably more fitting because it was REALLY cold that day. Thanks for visiting!

Hi James, thanks for visiting and your comments!

Much warmer here now but these two presentations make me shiver. Excellent work.

Abhishek said...

Hmm, I think I like the colour one better... Gives it more depth. :)

I like the focal point that you chose and the rail leads my eye through the swirling snow. It's like a vortex. This is a really good shot that works well in color and black and white.
