Snow Heart

Uploaded: August 17, 2007


Someone creatively made a huge heart in the snow on a frozen pond near our home. Once I looked through my 135mm 2.8, I saw an intriguing path. I did make an alteration with PS CS2: there was also an arrow through the heart, but in the image was distracting, so it was removed, just leaving the wavy path. Also, USM and slight crop. Blue is natural from early morning light.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: +7/10, Exposure Time: 1/60, Flash: flash did not fire, ISO: 100, White Balance: auto white balance, Focal Length: 135mm, Camera Model: MAXXUM 7D
