I really like the light and shadow play here. It's a very good image. IB
Gorgeous shot and great detail image.......
Sadly I think the light overpowers the image and takes your eye away from the building plus should of used rule of thirds as horizon smack bang in the middle doesn't help.
I would of perhaps stepped round to the left and had the sun shining on the subject but without direct sunlight in the shot.
Good point on 1/3's, I paid attention to the sun and building, didn't w/the horizon. Stepping to the left would have worked to. I was a wee bit concerned as I had to shoot one handed as my dog and leash were in the other.
Ahh I see! Well I would guess you will have plenty more opportunities to get it again, so keep going until you get an image your really delighted with! Persistence does pay in the end!

Loaded a mod
pleased to meet you, its the first of yours i have seen.
interesting scene and i am sure you are happy with it, the conditions are nice and the twinkling light is always eyecatching.
i dont know your level of experience but if you are, or become a member of a camera club then various little rules and tips come up time and time again when having judges comment upon your images.
firstly, shooting directly towards the sun creates a few problems, the light meter will be fooled into thinking its pulling the exposure back to grey and underexpose the snow, the brighness of the sun will always be outside the dynamic range of your sensor and would be better to move around a little to position the full force out of frame. otherwise the result is as you have here with the detail near the sun blown out totally. of course this would be even worse if you had increased the exposure to correct the whites in the snow.
compositionally the horizon is placed near the centre of frame and it usually looks better on the lower or higher third. lastly shooting into the sun, despite providing lovely twinkling, has put the face of the building into dark shadow that is hard to see into the detail.
hope some of this helps you to see how a second glance can often help you come away with a much better image.
Absolutely apprectiated Phill. I am just begining to get into the hooby so all advice is welcome. I hope to become better overtime and as I gain in my understanding of my camera. That will most likely happen just before I upgrade! lol. Cheers
