At the suggestion of Angel Whip - this thread is for photographs of Winter scenes however lets make it a bit more catchy by adding...

...winter scenes of decorated Christmas Trees both inside and outdoors (in malls, restaurants or even at home)? and also include great yard scenes taken at night! After all businesses, friends and neighbors spend lots of time and money giving us a colorful presentations to admire or drive by, we should at least all enjoy the fruits of their labor.? Plus I love night photography.? ? :p

As usual you can assist your masterpieces in photoshop, Image Ready, and any plug-in that enhances the effect - get tricky!

DON'T DELAY START SNAPPING NOW! WE ONLY HAVE 22 DAYS LEFT!

This is the same scene using "thrown camera" technique. I'm just a beginner at it and I can attest that takes a lot of courage to toss the camera. For this one I let the cam dangle from its leash.

Hi Ronmatt and Patrick Thanks for dropping by--I'm anxious waiting your winter scenes. BTW How'd you find this thread? I went to photography category and didn't see it -- I found it by going to "profiles" and looking for last post by Joy. Do I have it in the wrong place? [saywhat]

OK I found it! I thought I was looking here before but... I'm confused about why I couldn't see it. I'm not receiving notices of new postings either so something is miss-wired at headquarters-- sorry for all the complaints

this actually is an ad for a tahoe ski resort. I removed the logo so that it couldn't be considered SPAM
and it's a few years old and no copyright issues

Hi Stuie - You've been ignoring me lately so I'm glad you finally posted a reply. ;) Yes about the cam I know I know. Thrown camera enthusiasts say to buy a discardable cam first to get the hang - apparently there is some expected wrist action. I can only let my Minolta dangle from its string [saywhat] therefore, I don't get the great shots I've seen by others :cry:

Ronmatt - Thanks for posting, that's a great winter scene, the look on his face is priceless. I love the sush!

Tossing Your Christmas Cookies

Convenient method:
Next time you find yourself in front of a trampoline... at night..., grab your camera and go bouncing.
Weeeeee!

Of course, Joy, you know you can always do what we do and put Gort on a catapult while he's holding the shutter open.
Sometimes, he can "stick" the landing.

...and the Russian judge gives him a 9.5

Not too sure if this is the type of thing you wanted Joy. I did this for my niece last week. ronmatt's picture reminded of it. :)

KLAATU SEZ: Gort on a catapult...
HA HA HA KLAATU IS THAT THE FAMOUS "THROWN GORT TECHNIQUE"? or in case he tosses his cookies along the way, we could call it the "GTSE"? (GORT TOSSED SALAD? EFFECT) ... OOOO what wicked torture for my dear green one? ;).

RonMatt - Loved your goosey entourage - they look like they are having a good time avoiding the dinner plate during the holidays.

:cry: TaoBoogie your image won't open for me? :cry:

AngleWhip Tempting ornaments! Very cute pic.

Hey, we've finally got some snow! here in NYC.
This image may not be artistic, but I wasn't about to go out in it just yet.
So here is a shot of my front lawn.

wow its looks cold but beautiful. Really like the branch structures and colors, did you use a photo filter or just catch the light that way?
