This is a Photography contest where you may submit your photography work to yours truly and where you will compete with other people

Rules
----------------------

1. Submit according to topic- If picture has nothing to do with the topic of the week it will not be accepted

2. Originality- If I see a person submitting a photograph with a girl giving a cat ice-cream and then you submit a boy giving dog ice-cream I am going to assume you stole the idea and it will not be accepted: Consequences first time disqualified from current trend, second time banned for 3 week and the third time banned permanently unless Under a circumstance I allow you in or if various people vouch for you

3. No copying- If I catch you stealing someones work, Google or any other source. Consequences: Same as originality

4. No re-posting- You cannot re-post same photograph you previously submitted in any other trend in this thread. Consequences: Same as rule number 2 and 3

5. No Photoshop- If I do not declare that the trend week will be a "Photoshop trend week" None will be tolerated UNLESS you are changing a color picture to black&white and vise verse

6.No negative comments- I will allow other members of AG to comment on the photographs but, nothing negative the only one allowed to post anything negative will be me and don't worry when i say negative i don't mean completely trash you.

7. Ideas- If you have an idea do not be afraid to ask just go on my PROFILE not this thread and post your idea and i will run it through

8. No Judging- No one can judge or choose a winner except me for now that is until I ever choose another judge but, if it is "People choice week" then people can vote and I will tally to votes only one vote per person and the people who submitted photographs may not vote.

9. Nothing inappropriate- We under AG rules so, no nudity, racism ect.

10. No profanity- I shouldn't have to explain this but, again we under AG rules. So, no profanity what so ever

Wait - when you mention no Photoshop, I usually set all the basics of the photos with it, like the contrast and saturation and stuffs 'cause I prefer RW2 (RAW) and that is the only way to change it from RW2 to jpg. Should I just use jpg then?

Yes, JPG when it comes to color to black&white and vise versa you can use Photoshop but, not for changing saturation, contrast, shadow details and stuff like that. does that answer your question?

Yeah. I might forget to change and accidentally take a picture in RW2 anyways - it's what my camera is set to. But I will try to remember.

Nature. That should be easy enough.

*cracks fingers* lets do this!!

Let me just say wow, Beautiful picture not only that but, I love the title really captured me. I also love how you set up the camera in front of the tall grasses I really enjoyed that and the way the shrubs and trees make a dark, bold border so that your not really distracted by the houses behind it that way you really focus on the frozen river, the snow. Also, I am a sucker for clouds because the shadow details on them. So, I really like the big close that is on the horizon. The contrast is nice and dark really represents the mood of winter. A couple of things I know you cant control nature those dark clouds are annoying because if you look at the bottom part on the left and right Positive space threes, shrubs, grass and then the middle negative space just snow and rive and then the top is mostly positive space so, those dark clouds sort of distract you from the bottom where it shows the beauty of winter. So, imagine the top part with out the dark clouds it would have looked nicer right? and the bridge or what ever that is at the end also, pisses me off lol like if a shrub would have covered it that would have done it justice but, these were elements our of your control. Overall nice picture really nice this truly represents winter the leafless trees, snow, dark and moody very nice.
