Weekly challenge #561 - Winter
Posted By: turbo_bird, 11-21-2021, 05:11 PM

Thanks again Yaki for last week's challenge of low key photos, and thanks for choosing my photo. Seeing how where I live we just got our first snowfall a couple days ago, let's see some photos of winter. Winter is one of my favourite times of year for photography, as there's so much variety in weather and lighting conditions, and everything looks so different covered in snow. Another bonus is that the sun is fairly low in the sky all day long, so I don't have to get up early for sunrise. I know not everyone in the world gets snow, but most of us get some type of winter season, so that's up for interpretation as well.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

And just because I can, here's a few samples.












Have fun everyone!

I love that image Yaki; reminds me of a scene from 'Let the Right One In'.

Thanks for your question. Not a lot really, The rock was on an angle the tree was on an angle, I was in a moving carriage at a steep angle, the snow was belting in at about 45 degrees. So the composition was already there. Some black and white clipping, clarity, vibrance, sharpening, strong contrast and some saturation. All the blur and painterly effects are from camera movement and the snow.
Thanks for the explanation Bruce, it shows just how artistic a photograph can look with the right conditions and eye of the photographer behind the camera.

I kind of wish I didn't have to choose just one either, this is going to be tough. I'll look through them all and see if I can come up with just one in a bit though, if everyone's got their entries in now.
