Week 36 #52 Winter Landscapes


I have been putting this theme off thinking I might make another trip up north to get a shot with more snow than the day I took this one in mid January. This was taken at Des Moines Golf and Country Club standing in the parking lot aiming out to one of the fairways.

I had a lot of fun playing around with different effects and decided to switch the shot to B&W and used “Ruined Wall” for the shot. The border I chose helped add to the aged look. I actually really like it, different from a typical winter shot. I included the original. You decide which one you like the best.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  2. I agree with MN, the B&W is superb, I guess that means two thumbs up for you! Great job
    What software did you use for the effects?

  3. Black and white shows the contrast which makes it more appealing.

  6. Very much like the colors of your second picture — however, the B&W conveys the idea of a cold and desolate winter day more emphatically.

  8. I like the black and white also. The editing is super, really adds to the atmosphere of the shot. The colour photo is a good image too. Thanks for adding the shooting data. I have been lazy lately. Good poke to get on it again.
