    Thank you so much! I would have never thought that it would make TT... :-)

    Una, I believe you! But this is really a fine photo and a remarkable image because the effect produced is so painterly without the use of PP.

    Congratulations Una. You should put this one on your wall.

    Thank you for your kind comments! :-) I am glad you like it!

Lo, I was not sure about the theme, but the options have been: Enter nothing or enter this one... ;-) (Ran out of time for a second picture)

I was at the market, and then this snow storm suddenly came, and I just wanted to capture it (I was not thinking about the challenge). I had my LX3 with me (as always), in IA mode. I swear there was no PP Jade. (besides what I mentioned) :-) Its the camera! (I love it)

    Yes, it is H2O, but I think,that it was meant pictures of liquid water. Anyway, the picture is so good, that I took it in my favorites.

    Can't agree that snow fits the theme, but wanted to say that I think this is an absolutely beautiful vignette. I almost feel like I'm in amongst the crowd.

    Well, water and snow have the same chemical make-up: they are both composed of the same molecules. However the molecules are arranged differently.

The way molecules are arranged makes a huge difference. The best example of this is carbon which can be soot, graphite or even a diamond. They are all the same combination of atoms but I don't think anyone would consider them the same 'thing'

But forget all of that - I love your photo - it is the best picture of falling snow I've seen. The lighting, the people and the tree all combine to make a super shot.

    Beautiful color and tone.
Our attention is immediately drawn to the couple on the right as they discuss what they need to purchase.
A Christmas card feeling to the scene.

    As fine as a painting, this is an incredible result for no PP. I just wish the leaning fellow to the left wasn't leaning; I thought the shot off vertical until I realized it was just him. A beautiful work, with unbelievable composition for a candid. The two to the right could not have been better posed excepting perhaps if she had been looking up at him.
