PS. Just a friendly reminder (seeing your a newbie & we welcome & enjoy veiwing what new members have to offer us) ... However; (Ohhhh noooo ) ... We tend to have an rather open veiw of keeping to the max. of 3-4 images per day. Why??? Newbies have this conception, that when they upload (let's say more than 5 images at once... they think they are uploading directly into their own gallery... but the truth is: In order for that to occur... they *first are placed in the Main Gallery... and without thinking what happens when they upload more than what most members (older) do... like 3 max in a day... Newbies when posting more than what we consider acceptance level... and the main reasons are these: 1. They flood out other members images (and alot only post 1 per day) 2. When this occurs, members will seldom leave a reply to the newbie because instead, they are scrolling back to find all images that other members also have posted in that same day.
We like to call it blog. eticate (typo... I know)
Soooo in order to get the best feedback on your captures... keep it at the acceptable level. This way your bound to get more responces!
Just a friendly heads up & again, "Welcome to the blog!"

This is exactly the kind of scene I really enjoy. Snow in general does it for me, and put an interesting building in, and it's instantly appealing. One of the other things members will do on this site that's a bit different from most Flickr responders, is offer some little tidbit of opinion about how a picture might be better. My offering in this case, perhaps next time you visit a subject such as this, give a little more sky space above the very top, in this case the cross/weather vane thing. That way it doesn't seem crowded. Please remember this is just one dude's opinion, and many others may not feel the same way. You've done a marvelous job here, and I hope you keep it up.
Chris IF I recall... and you may have to eat your own words on this latest comment above... Just have to look in the forum to see your precise words on uploading/flooding.
Just my opinion was yours too.. only you got tired of making comments on this subject. So do not come off sounding defencive now... Just shows some members ethics... just another who worded words... Kind of shocking coming from you.
But then---> Tis my opinon.. Right ???
Soryy Ant... Just had to make a reply.. seeing Chris has been an old timer with many different nics.
Nothing personal on you.. just get tired of ppl mouthing words to newbies & then retracking them to look good! Not my style... I walk the talk... not talk the talk.. if you get my full meaning.

Kelly, I didn't need to say anything about multiple posts because I saw you had already done so. I still agree that self-limitation of posting is better for the blog as a whole. That's why I've carefully waited for one of my pictures to be off the screen before posting another. In the past, I would sometimes have a couple up at once.
Great picture, welcome to the blog, its nice to see your work , a bit of a shame that in your comments box's is an argument rather than photographic technique critique, keep up the good work ...looking forward to seeing more of your pictures Harvey

Gee, I hope nobody is thinking I'm part of an argument. My comments to antondala are positive. I like the pic. Please don't drag me into this, anybody. I just want to put out positive thoughts and a wish to see more great pictures like this.
Love the stark contrast of the dark Church? against all that beautiful white. I agree with Chris about a little more space above the church. he sky looks like it was cooperating too! Welcome to the blog, look forward too seeing more...
