2010: Day 4

I made a detour or 2 on the way home from Portland today.  I traipsed through some snow and took a few pictures.  I've not been very happy with my efforts towards figuring out the snow thing.  I wanted to try some more.

Here's another effort with the low dof.  I like the color contrast and the composition with the bridge running diagonal and the water/trees behind.  Nothing pops in the photo, though.

Off hte other side of the bridge I also shot the water plant thingies.  I like the colors and the circles.

I also tried for some landscape shots of the snow.  I went to the golf course and was trying to accurately capture the tones and textures in the snow.  I was using an ND filter and wishing my husband had bought me the polarizing filter I wanted for Christmas.  Turns out that he did,  but I seem to be old and have memory issues and I forgot. forgot. 
In any case all of the land/waterscapes I took were boring and flat and not even a little crisp.  Proof:


See?  Blah, blah blah.  Thoughts?  Ideas?  Suggestions?
