We were hit with a lot of rain that turned to ice/snow overnight. I went out the next afternoon and there were a lot of ice covered trees. This one was my favorite. I feel like I am missing something that could make these better, any suggestions?? Crop out more sky in #1 and probably could have waited for clouds to pass in #2 so there would be more blue backround at the top of the tree ??

I would suggest something different:
I think #1 would be a real stunning photo, if you had waited till the sky behind it was completely blue ( and maybe using a polarizer to get the blue even bluer). Of course I presume this was possible and while waiting, you yourself didn't turn blue:biggrin:!

Nice set Bill ....
my daugher attends SUNY New Paltz so I know they got some ice as well ...
I'll think she'll be surprised Friday when we go down to bring her home for a quick weekend visit and from little snow down there to over 18" on the ground here ...

Ice can be a real pain when it comes to driving, but it does look nice on the trees. I live right across the river from Poughkeepsie and we had the same thing over here. After 2 days we still have ice on the trees in the hills behind my neighborhood. looks real nice late afternoon when the sun hits it just right.

I like the first photo the best, but I would like to see more of the field to the right of the tree in the frame. I do like how the image looks up the road rather than viewing the road from the side as in the other 2 images.

Great images Bill. I live in eastern part in India. There is no chance of such ice storm. I never felt these. Your shots gives me the idea of the fact. Great series. Love the series.

Thanks Rob, honestly I haven't done much landscape stuff yet and I really didn't notice how much better a blue sky would have shown the tree untill I got home. Lesson learned.

Thanks Ron, now why would you want to do that to that poor girl?? My sister-in-law is from Baldwinsville near syracuse and they got hammered too. I don't know how you guys do it.

Thank You Anindyanuri, It's actually quite beautiful after an ice storm here although after a long hard winter like we have had this year, I'm not so sure many people could see this storm that way.
