PS Todd - you get my vote - so please can you give us all a bit more on how you set about getting the "Kodachrome" look - you absolutely nailed the look of my Dad's 1960's slide cellection !
No. When the challenge ends, it takes a bit for judging and posting results, then the winner has up to 5 days to post the next challenge. At least under current rules. We average a couple of challenges each week.Is there a set day of the week the new contests are posted?
Thanks, Darek! I always appreciate the efforts of the person hosting and judging the challenge. We had snow here yesterday evening—- just a few slushy flakes that mostly melted when they hit the ground. No sign of them this morning.Nice entries, thank you all.
Had to spend some time on the selection, it was not easy.
Some of my thoughts:
Tighter crops (sides) brings IMO to much attention to the "bush", and in some of them line of the distant trees looks strange / disturbed due to the variation in the stands density).
Could not decide what to do with the water covered with ice and snow: looks like a film grain. Two cases works for me: to make it more grainy, or to smoothen it.
Although it was a hazy day, I prefer more clear view, especially on the trees line.
The above and overall image impression results in:
Runner 2: @Hendrik - overall
Runner 1: @RichardC entry 2 - like that ice surface
Winner: @WhidbeyLVR entry 2 - reflects my mood for the scene
It's your turn Lyle.
PS. Somehow expected an image showing subs periscope or a kiosk, emerging from the lake. Maybe next time.
