About the Image(s)

I'm out mushing along a country road with 3 of my Siberian Huskies. Enjoying the day of cold and snow. Siberian Huskies love running mostly in the winter. They actually get depressed if they can't run. This was taken with my cell phone. It's a little difficult to photograph and dog sled at the same time, I love trying.

This is awesome Connie, and something Ive always wanted to try, but never had the chance. Its difficult to imagine the cold when we are in the middle of summer, but I did want to reach for a blanket when I first looked at this image! You are very blessed with your 3 furry friends, and they look like they are having a fine time. I wonder if the white balance needs a little adjusting, it seems a little blue? Well done, I think its great!   Posted: 02/07/2019 18:41:40

Thank you Toni. It is a lot of fun, makes winter a lot more exciting. I kind of bumped of the blue to give it a cold feeling.   Posted: 02/09/2019 15:09:00

I love this image. It is so beautiful. I get a very fun and exciting feeling when I look at these gorgeous dogs really to run. Great composition and great leading lines. Also, good storytelling image. Contrast is spot on too. I did change the white balance. The snow looks a little blue. Good Job.   Posted: 02/08/2019 15:47:18

Thank you Linda. I did bump up the blue tones to give it a colder feeling. I think partly it was the time of day like at sunset which made the sky to the left a little orange when I changed to the tones.   Posted: 02/09/2019 15:13:52

Oh what fun! The dogs are beautiful . I love this image that you made and I prefer the original. The others look a bit too blue and unnatural to my eye. Your composition is great and kudos to you for taking this and holding a cell phone. ( I think you need a go pro so you can get an action shot!)   Posted: 02/09/2019 21:35:36

It is a good image. Has interest and impact. I think I find it a little over saturated. Keep with blue; but, maybe not so much,   Posted: 02/18/2019 17:00:37

I love the composition. For me, the blue in the snow is just right, however, I find the sky a little too much. A further suggestion could be to crop off the top of the image to the start of the snow line. It wold be a totally new image with perspective lines leading out of the top - leaving the viewer wondering where the journey goes next.   Posted: 02/19/2019 10:20:50
