Thanks everyone for your appreciation and comments.

About cutting off the wrists - yes, this was a mistake that I realized when I looked at the picture on the computer. I have to be more careful with framing while taking these casual pictures.

About the title - The way I do title is when I upload a picture to flickr, whatever comes to my mind first becomes the title. The day I was uploading this picture, the forecast was 65F on the weekend, that would end the past 4-5 days of 14-18F temperatures. Hence the title. I agree that it doesnt go with the picture.

Lighting and lens - This is taken at night as some of you observed. This is the 'post-office' of my apartment and there is a pathway to the right of the picture. The light is coming from street lamps (as sparkle guessed). Shutter speed is 1/60s, handheld. Face is bright because ISO was cranked up high. It is at 10,000 ISO (no specialized NR used, just the default in Aperture3). It is taken with a D700. Lens is the 100$ 50/1.8D lens.

I hope you don't flame me for posting a non-Pentax picture. But I have both Pentax and Nikon lenses, and so I shoot both. Here is one picture taken by a Pentax k-x non-weathersealed lens, in a snowstorm in Yellowstone National park.

camera - Pentax k-x, ISO=800, DA15mm lens, f/5.
