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!
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.
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.
