About the Image(s)

About 8 inches of snow on my patio furniture! The snow was still falling. So I used 1/250 shutter speed and caught a few individual flakes actually falling. The original image is almost a white-out. So I fiddled with it in Lightroom to try to show some texture in the show. I used the new Texture slider and set it to its maximum of 100. Also bumped up the Clarity to 40 so that everything wasn't so evenly white.

I shot this through the window. I didn't go outdoors. If I had waited for a bright red cardinal to land on the table, I'd still be standing there waiting! Those pretty birds never seem to show up when you need one! So the point of the picture is the amount of snow. Any ideas about how to make such a scene more interesting without compositing a bird into it?

I love the serenity of this photo, so peaceful. A time of contemplation for me. I like how you have captured the texture of the snow and the few flakes that are falling so good use of the sliders in LR. To me I think the bright red cardinal would have been to much! I like the image how it is and maybe if a little bit more the chair on the right hand side would have been included that would have evened up the image in my eyes.   Posted: 08/11/2019 17:36:45
