About the Image(s)

I was driving on the road and noticed this gorgeous snow scenery, I can’t help to capture the tranquility of this beautiful scenery from my car with my mobile phone. No cropping or editing is needed.

Hi Linda, you certainly captured the tranquility of the scene and I think it is helped by your choice of black and white.

This gorgeous scenery almost came out black and white. I remembered the snow had stopped and I was driving in the early Sunday afternoon.   Posted: 11/19/2021 19:37:40

Hi Linda: Your scenic is indeed peaceful. Rendering it as a black & white is a good choice. I like the idea of the open gate inviting the viewer into the scene. You might try cropping out half of the sky.   Posted: 11/15/2021 16:59:26

Hi Rick, I thought I didn't need any cropping. I do agree cropping off the top of the sky would be a good idea. Thanks for your input!   Posted: 11/19/2021 19:40:44

Here is a cropped version of your image. Notice by doing this it also assimilates a panorama-like picture.   Posted: 11/20/2021 14:34:54

Hi Linda, you have captured the atmosphere beautifully. The viewer is lead into the image to the houses through the open gate to follow the leaving lines of the fences. I think that Rick's idea about cropping the sky a bit is good - I think that the image would look great even in a panorama-like format?   Posted: 11/17/2021 03:54:15

Hi Kristi, I remembered I was debating if I should drive on this hilly road on a snowy day, it turned out it was worth it! I do agree the panorama view would look beautiful as well!   Posted: 11/19/2021 19:50:08
