    Wonderfull. Not sure the single snow flake adds to the image though?

    Agree here. It might be a charming anecdote among photographers but as it is it seems more of a defect than part of the image from a bystander's point of view.

    I agree. I almost cloned it out, but I decided to leave it to look at for awhile. I would like to shoot the same image over during the next snowy day when there are lot's of blowing snow flakes, and to try and capture as many flakes sharp as possible. I think that would add some nice depth to the image.

    The blend is only the frame and some tinting by the blending picture.

    Hi !

    Many excellent images shown by all participants here
    I'm quite new to "blends", two weeks ago, I had never used layers

    Today, I wanted to share with you a pic I shot this morning, with my Zoom-Nikkor 50-300/4.5

    Mike - this is one of the best snow flake images I've seen

    http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/subs/cam26.htm

    He shoots in very low light at dusk or dawn with long exposures, and used a flash to capture the flakes - somewhere on his site, he tells how he did it

    I like this image but I get the impression a little more general contrast, while masking the girl's face, would improve it.

    No waiting necessary. It's relatively easy to create falling snow in Photoshop (you don't even need 14Gigs of RAM, Mike!).
    Google it, or just check these two for starters:

    These artificial snow images remind me of a sand storm that I experienced once near Monument valley. We stepped out from our hotel room for an hour, and came back to find a foot of sand in it.
    I originally thought that Mikes dot was an imperfection. But as it is so difficult to capture just one flake out of trillions, I would keep it and maybe donate it to the Smithsonian
    Looks a bit like the little dots that I had all over my early bokehgraphs - turned out to be dust on the sensor, and I haven't got it all off yet.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks for the Links Keith and Michael. I'll keep working on capturing the snow. I think it is suppose to snow in a few days.
    Here is another in my series of walking in the snow. It is made up of 3 images plus texture. The figure was really there. Just in case you are wondering. This is a work in progress. When it comes time to print, I might have to change the densities in the blacks.

    No need. Simply duplicate the layer and click on the mask button. Click over the little image icon to its left to activate the layer rather than the mask and do your Curves adjustment etc. on this layer. Then click on the Mask icon again and wherever you paint over it in black it will seem to remove the adjustment you've just made on the whole layer. A simple reminder Black=Blocks the effect.

    Possibly. Last Spring I bought the Oly 9-18 to use with my MA-1 adaptor--so I'm not sure. The 7-14 is certainly tempting though--if I sell the 9-18.

    I like the result here Keith.

    This one was taken yesterday on a walk, the texture is from a wall nearby taken a short while before.

    Very nice Michael. My shot was from Prague, where is yours shot. Looks kind of familiar.
    I like the way yours is starting to become abstract because of the textures. When I was in Prague last time, I was really drawn to some abstract paintings of Prague buildings. I haven't been able to get that look yet, but I'll keep trying.

    nothing meaningful. I must admit, I have a hard time coming up with titles for my work. Some night I need to sit down with a bottle or two of wine and start going thru my work and renaming the images. I think what happens is that when I start working on an image, i do so many variations and I also work on more than one image at a time like most of us I imagine, and I usually title it with the first thing that pops into my mind and then I'm off working on another image.
    Did something pop into your mind about this image?

    I don't know, maybe "2012" or like the show I saw on the History channel called "Life after Man" or since it's a russian gas mask , "Chernobyl"
    I did this about 15 yrs ago as a statement about what the future would be if we didn't stop polluting.

    That came into my mind. Or maybe "Chernobyl is everywhere".

    Maybe this should be made into a billboard or a protest sign.

    Actually my wife just informed me that when I go to bed tonight, I should wear a gas mask because our dog ate something that didn't agree with him and he is farting like crazy! how Ironic.

    Was inspired by your photo. The mustard field is as much industry as the cement plant. Photographed the same day.
