Default Working With What I Got!!!

Im going to make a deal with the local tv weatherman. I will inform him when Im going to be using my camera. He can then advise people there is a 99% chance of showers. Ten o'clock at nite and it was raining. This is just an HDR near where I live. I used 5 shots. In Photomatix 4 I chose one of the Fusion presets. Then I took that image and combined it with another HDR that used a different preset. The reason was to cut down on the street light glare and maintain the colors of the holiday lights. Its not a great scene, but its exactly how it looks.

Crackers, you got a lot of snow. None here yet but a few flurries. Id like to get rid of all our pine trees and replace them with coconut and date palms. Good one here Simon. Interesting how the snow falling effect is best seen against the brick wall and the sky but almost invisible everywhere else.

Nice work Bynx.

There is a lot of detail to see in this image even, if it is dark and gloomy.

Interesting shots from both of you: good job in capturing the decorations on a gloomy night; and the snow shot really shows it coming down.

But what's with all the snow in Britain? I thought being an island surrounded by water and at the end of the gulf stream kept the snowfall down. I need to go outside, look at my palm trees and warm up. Brrrrr!

Good Going Bynx. I really like this type of shot! Well worth the effort you put into it IMO. I like the dark spooky side of photography! Well done Sir!

The texture/mood reminds me of an old photo from the 30's or 40's, kinda, except
for the Christmas lights...

I think they may be trying to make it rain more in Africa and well we need to turn the world for it to happen mans doing of course I just be reading and watching the changes.

Guess I should of gotten ticket to Ukraine for Christmas.
