Incredibly crisp! I like it very much:) #356241

Patricia A. Cale 1/31/2004 8:08:08 PM

Thanks, Alisha. It's crisp because we have had temperatures in the single digits and below zero this week here in Illinois. Today was the first day that was near 20 degrees - almost a heat wave! #356256

Carol Brill 1/31/2004 10:30:33 PM

Marvelous how you caught the texture and sparkle of the snow so well here, Pat, wonderful sharp detail and composition, too! #356315

Patricia A. Cale 1/31/2004 10:43:44 PM

Anette & Carol: Thank you so much.

Carol, the sun was at the right angle and was still on the bright side. That helped make the sparkles. Also, I had to do a trade-off on getting the leaves properly exposed and letting the snow go dark, or overexpose the shot to get white snow, which also lost the detail and brought out bright hotspots on the leaves. I liked this one best out of the two I shot. #356316
