Beautifully done. As an afterthoughtI would probably have shown the entire shadow of the bench. IMOH this would have contributed another dimension to the shot.

As is still wonderful.

Aloha

Thank you, Selvin. I do have another shot that shows the entire shadow. And, I did like it better, but it has more of the bush you see in the top left hand corner because of where I had to stand to get it. I thought the bush would add to much non-white to the photo to be acceptable for the challenge.

Here is the second image.

NHM -

I agree with Selvin (entire shadow would have been good) and you (the second angle isn't as good.

Perhaps a little wider shot, from the angle of the first one, would do the trick.

Why is all the snow behind the bench mucked up? Is it under a high tree that has been dripping on it, or something like that?

BTW - I hope all that "very, very bright" sun is warming you up a little! :-)

I can't get the wider angle of the first shot as I only have 18mm lens and to step back farther I have to stand in the street. But, I do see what you mean.

The mucked up snow behind is from the plow in the high school parking lotbehind the bench.

Well, the very bright sun was warmer yesterday and might be tomorrow. But, today it never got above 8ºF at my house. I'm still cold from having gone out shopping and I've been in the warm house for an hour. Brrrrr!!!!!

I like the first shot the best but I agree with all that has been said.

NHM,

The second shot with the full shadow does have the drawbacks you mentioned so I think your crop is the best of all possible worlds.

It's funny how relative things are. You're close to zero and I'm here on the big island of Hawaii freezing my tootsies off at night when the temperature drops to the low sixties.

Yes, I know how cold it gets there on the mainland since I lived in Chicago for 5 years. That's probably the main reason I'm now here in Hawaii.

Aloha and thanks for sharing your photos.

Great example of white on white, I prefer the 1st photo but the shadow is great in # 2.

Best regards,

Mag
