River Snow Trees

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
River Snow Trees
River Snow Trees
f/9.5, 1/180s, 150 mm, ISO 400, in snowstom at OLP--Onondaga Lake Park, Liverpool, NY. Evening. Part of my "Off Season" Series.

Hi Everyone, I'm finally home! But my PS isn't working and I had to revert (ugh!) to an earlier version (7--I'm so spoiled--dang!) 7 won't even open raw and I've ONLY been shooting in raw!

I will begin catching up commenting, but it will take a while, as I have floods of snail and E-mail etc, as well as unpacking etc. But I WILL catch up! Mary :-)

You did great inspite of only having PS 7 :-) We are all so spoiled :-) When I got my new computer my PS CS would not work and I went back to PS 4.0, what a big difference! I felt like a cripple until I got it working again :-)
Your image is wonderful BTW :-) Very peaceful and serene!
