Patty, I love the idea, but for me the tree branches take a little bit away from the picture. EXIF shows it was taken at 26mm. Is there any chance to maybe get in front of the tree and use a wider setting like 18mm without it changing the overall perspective of the photo?

Thanks, Ishino. The snow is about 18" there, or was Friday night, since we've had another 8-10" on top of that since then. I was standing on the shoveled sidewalk, but I can try to go back and follow your suggestion. I had played around with it a little more earlier tonight to submit to a town photo contest we have. I'll replace this one with the cropped version so you can see.

I like the idea too and, remembering how quiet a snowy night was as a kid (before moving to FL), I think really says peace. I like the first uncropped one better but I agree with Ishino that another angle or spot without the tree would be better.

I like the original version better, too. The tree is more intrusive in the cropped version - its presence in the original didn't bother me as the bare branches add to the wintery feeling.

Hey, it may not be much but I can't let it be said that I didn't enter.

Not too late yet, folks. Here's mine. St Lucia, the Italian saint celebrated on the 13:th of December. Only in Sweden and the odd lutheran church in Wisconsin.

Not a very great photo, but a great serenity! (Notice the BigDawglook-alike at the far right)
