It’s so difficult to choose…

…among these images, taken on a snowy walk last week. The first three are merely Photoshopped (TM), which I normally utilize with all my images.

It was a granular snow, yet it clumped together nicely on the car windows!

Then, I began to ‘play’…and took them into the Blur Filter, experimenting with all the different effects.

I found I really liked Surface Blur, set at relatively low levels.

The snow kept much of its ‘granular’ look, and most of the reflections were blurred.

‘Playing’ is great fun and very educational, if one takes and makes the time.

Fortunately, I do!

  1. I love “Snow Dots an Reflections 2″! I love the tree in the right corner, and how I then make sense of the rest of the photo.
    I need to make a wish-list of prints. This would be one. ~ Lily
