Default Ice On Whyte Festival

I went to the Ice on Whyte festival yesterday evening since the weather was way nicer than last week (-2c instead of ... -20c).

I found a lot of people there (including many photographers) since it was the last week-end of. Because of that, the number of shot I took from the Ice Sculpture is very low ... so I moved to street/mood photography instead.

Let me know what you think of those ...















I used to OM-D EM-5 with either the 45mm f1.8 or the Rokinon Fisheyere 7.5mm

Enjoy!

I think the 5th image may look good in B&W.

What a "cool" (Literally) exhibit. -20c....geez. Never experienced that. I hate -2 enough. Thin-skinned Texan here, but I think even I would make an attempt to get out and see something like this. Closest thing to ice like that I'm liable to see (crossing fingers now) is the rink at a Stars game.

Image 3 -- is that a snorkel in your shadow?

Like the colour version of the crowd around the food truck. When its biting cold there is nothing that warms you moire than seeing a splash of colour. Guess its a northern thing.

Really like the ice slide shot, again that faint trace of colour against the cold colour-drained surroundings really does it for me.

How do you find the E-M5 handles the cold?

I really like the last shot with the slides.

Hi,

I don't know what is was (and it wasn't me) I just liked the scene.

As for the cold and the E-M5, I shooted before from -10c to -15c without any problems. As usual, the cold will drain the battery faster than usual ... but I use the Battery Grip with another battery in it. Even with the cold, it will last a while.

If there is too much snowing, I can always use the 12-50, which is splash proof.
