It was super cold...but the snow was absolutely beautiful. I had just bought a wireless remote trigger, and decided to give it a test run on myself. I set up on the frozen river behind my house, and in the picked corn field as well. Here are a few of my favorites.

You did a pretty good job. The last one is the best.

The last one is very good Eric. Self portraits are tough and my only nitpick would be the sunglasses. Looks way to cold there.

Sunglasses are more crucial on sunny winter days than most summer sunny days. You can't imagine how bright it is when the ground is covered by the snow.

I tried some without the glasses, but I was way too squinty. The first pic without sunglasses was near sunset, so it wasn't as bad. Thanks for the comments!

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I like the 2nd one the best...but I would clone stamp the snow out of the frame in the front of the image and place the tracks behind you.

Cool shots. My only critique would be to go a little lighter on the vignette

Yeah...that would be cool to see tracks all the way back. I like #1 as well. The hunter looking down at perhaps some tracks instead of the camera might make for a good shot (and no branch across the body in the foreground :)). Great effort and really nice lighting.

I agree. It works on the last one but the others it is a bit too obvious.

Black out the sunglasses in post. As in, make it look like they are very dark instead of mirror finished.

Cool pix....I dig'um
