A pleasing wintry feel with the snowflakes captured as they fall through the image.

Nothing added and nicely processed. Tiny nit: If this were mine I would
crop that bit of white at the top.

Similar to one of my recent posts only I didn't have the added benefit of falling snow.
Nicely done. Ditto the top crop suggestion.

Pleasing and unusual « backdoor catch ». I tried it in B&W and could say the red color really completes the job...

Very nice, I like the little touches of colour.

Thank you all for your great comments. Very much appreciated. And thank you Ernest & Jeff for pointing out your nit. You are the experienced photographers who's nits ahould always be wanted. My take on the nit - it is the eavestroff and that bit of white sort of helps frame in the central portion that includes the white door and lower bottom snow. Also what can't be seen so easly here is that the red circular lantern handle slips right up tight to the eaves and a portion of that handle would be lost. There ia also quite a bit of detail that can not be seen in this post and out of those eaves the white Christmas light cords appear and at print size you can see the seperate twisted strands that make up each strand. A crop would remove that detail as well and the down cords would just be hanging there without any meaning. Thus for me, I will have to keep this image as is, as I think it tells a better story with the eaves kept in ? But I am happy that the issue was pointed out. Thanks again

Agree with Mo - he's da man -

interesting capture of an ordinary scene that most would pass by

I haven't seen an Insulbrick house in many years. Great capture! I especially like the HDR stylizing technique you're using.

Good find, Greg. Quite nostalgic. If not from the fifties, at least last winter.
