Winter night by ChemicalAlia Winter night by ChemicalAlia
I love how snow lights up the sky at night, and the lights from the city give everything this warm glow.

I've always been fascinated by the strange lighting snow gives out at night. It sort of gives a surreal effect.

Yeah, it's like the light is coming from everywhere, since it just bounces off the snow and the clouds.

I did like 50 other angles and compositions, with all sorts of exposures, double exposures, and all that. And I liked this one the best, it was one of the first ones and pretty straightforward.

Those fifty takes must've been worth it! I generally turn my nose up at photography, but there was just something purdy about this pic. So if you can get somebody to like something in a medium they usually don't care for, then you're probably doing something right!

Very nice.

I like snow better when it's around the holidays.

And we had snow a couple of nights back that stuck to the ground, but the rain afterward melted every bit of it before sunrise.

Same here. Well, actually, I think of snow as a huge pain in the ass since I'm a commuter and hate cold weather. But I can still appreciate it occasionally when I'm at home and it just fell, like this. This snow was gone by the next day, which was awesome. Didn't have to scrape my car at 7 am.

Hahaha, don't you just wish it was always like that? Snow's there one day, and vanishes completely by the next? :XD:

Wow, that's so beautiful! It's a little postcard-like... Yeah, make it into a postcard. =] I'd buy it.

Uuuugh... sad thing is, I've never even seen snow in my entire life... around the 50's-70's is winter down here.

Man, what I wouldn't do to have a beautiful sight like that around here right about now. I miss it when the snow is on the ground... I'm going to end this before I start to really rant...

Awesome shot! :D

Beautifully composed shot.

I'm the sort of person that likes a little bit of glare. To me it breaks the picture up a bit. Adds that little bit of atmosphere.

Yeah, I like photos that have at least one part that gives it some strong value contrast. I actually had to desaturate this image quite a bit, since the whole thing was a pretty bright orange.

My stupidly fail-ey attempts at humor aside, that's a really nice photo. I always associate snowy scenery with shades of blue, so this is an interesting contrast.

Thanks! Yeah, I love the way snow looks that night when it first comes down, it's sort of like a very bright full moon effect.

Snow, what's that? (I'm from Florida. I wish we had snow every once in a while. ;) )

But that's gorgeous. It's Christmas all over again!

Thank you! I like snow, at least for the first day. After that, it just gets gross and annoying to drive in.

It looks like it should be one of those inspirational posters.

Very nice picture! The lights from the porch are somewhat glaring, though.

Agreed. We lower northeastern states had a nice snowfall a few days ago, although I wished that it lasted longer...

Thank you! I agree about the light, it was bugging me, but I didn't want to lose the contrast by darkening the whole image. I went in and burned some of the bright area, hopefully that helped tone down the light. This was on Thursday night, so it's probably the same snow you're thinking about. It had melted by the next day.

I looked at it again, and it looks much better.

Snow makes everything colder. But if it's already cold, it might as well make it better!
