Seasonal Greetings To One and All!
I've been working on this particular one (for more like it seems ever) and believe from my imagination that I have finally created IMO a scene from which we all have experienced at one point and time (unless your location does not have snow and you have never been somewhere like this before)then you'll only be able to guess but for those that have....I tried to think how the visual would appear if taking an actual picture at this time of night and what would and would not be present such as lighting/shadows/color tones and alike and I think I'm pretty close here.....Your Thoughts?
So anyways I've had this idea and after many many trials and errors/hissy fits/crashes and late nights(lighting's better at night for rendering IMO because it's dark of course/no glare on the monitor and it's quiet....lol..)So here's # 5 in the Winter Scene Series entitled appropriately "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" for your viewing pleasure.

Holy smokes, man! You have captured the illumination of the street light perfectly! I've seen this type of scene many times in reality (though not quite so picturesque as this) and the ambience and sense of stillness is spot on. The way the light reflects off the snow... wow, man.
This is easily my favourite winter type scene. Absolutley great!

Gorgeous scene Will! As someone that is up to nearly his waist in snow if I step out the back door, I can say you nailed it exactly. There is a wonderful feeling of serenity walking along the deserted laneway while the snow if falling silently. It is a little less enjoyable when the wind is whipping the snow up and bringing the windchil down into the -30 range.
