We had a bit of a snow storm which I thought made the local park interesting. Noticed when walking the dog so went back and grabbed the camera. I don't have a tripod so this was hand held. Thoughts or suggestions?

I think it's a bit over exposed. A bit darker would add some dynamics to it IMO.

Thanks for the insights. Had not tried a night shot before.

I think its' kinda cool. I would suggest rotating it slightly so the horizon line is straight. Also, consider taking a look at it in black and white and increasing the contrast so the blacks are real black, or perhaps leaving it in color but increasing the saturation. Just a thought and something to try!

I see what you mean about the horizon. I don't use any PP software at this point so I don't know if I can rotate it just a tiny bit. I think it just gives me the option to do 90 degrees. I did change it to B&W on this shot

Nicely done for handheld at 1/6.

Just... Taste is different. Technically it is clean photo. But it is missing something. Something not technical.

Thanks. It was kind of a "spur of the moment" thing. Walking the dog, noticed the snow stuck to everything, went back and grabbed the camera at 11:30 at night!

Try this on line editor. You can rotate, crop and edit.
