Blue snow

Photographed from the top of the fell in midwinter

Technical Details


Beautiful work! I love wind blown snow sculptures. The blue is pretty strong here but it works.

Thanks Kevin! I have a slightly paler version on the wall, but this harsher one is definitely more functional

Hi Jorma, beautiful image with nice side light. The vague sense of scale works nicely. Love the lines and patterns. I do agree the blue is a bit strong but at the same time it works for this image.

Hi Jorma – This is a fun abstract subject, mostly because I have no sense of the scale for this scene. It is a tiny snow formation or a massive cornice? I am enjoying thinking about the possibilities.

I agree with the other comments about the blue. It feels quite strong but then it also helps amplify the mood of the scene. I can see going with less saturation but also think the strong color works here, too. I also like the mixed lighting since it adds dimensionality. The only thing I have feedback on is the composition in the upper left corner. The curve in the upper left corner on the left edge feels pretty tight. I think a little breathing room near that curve would remove some uncomfortable visual tension I am feeling at that point. Otherwise, I think everything comes together well!

Thanks Sarah! Yes, that upper left corner is a problem because there is a huge mess outside that should be cleaned up a lot in photoshop. This is a vertical crop from a horizontal image, which is also ok, but more effective as a vertical crop. This is a compromise because it is difficult to cut out from the left as well. I have cutted this many times :slight_smile:
