    Winter weather

    The weather here has been foul lately. Show me some winter weather. That's not exclusively snow and ice. Whatever characterises the weather at this time of year where the photo was taken.
    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Freezing fog at about 8am in the woods behind my house. Took this a few weeks back whilst testing out my new camera. Some of you guys seemed to like it so might as well enter it into the comp!

    Thanks hypatia. It is one I scanned recently, but it is not the best shot I have. The good one is buried in one of my many albums. It shows more of the foreground.

    All three pictures set the entry level of the contest very high.

    The weather has brightened up here, so I'll have to resort to using an old picture.

    Honestly, that's not an intended effect, I suppose that complete lack of details is because of the fact that negative have spent several years in my fridge before being developed.

    That picture looks really crisp, both the quality and the scene :smile: I also like Borek's picture, it is like she is standing in a dream and the landscape still needs to be formed around her.
