    you should be able to figure it out...
    That's pretty wild - they almost look like Christmas tree ornaments. A couple of them could pass for orbs in a different context, but the variation in shade and transparency of some is a dead giveaway that something entirely different is going on here.

    It looks like a basically no-snow winter for us this year - raindrops don't photograph as well... But the next time its snowing around here in the evening, I'm going to try to remember to try that.

    I also like how the ones that are on the focal plane are small and nice and sharp and rest are diffuse soft glowing balls.

    :026: Darn you, Luke!:rofl:

    What a great idea - love the way the dog and his walker are set off from the background, almost a decoupage kind of look. Very cool looking, indeed!

    Yup, only one real snow for us this year here in the NY metro area...very, very unusual. It's drizzling now, alas.

    If that modern day car and street light weren't there, I'd say this has a very 50's look to it.

    I could Photoshop an old Chevy BelAir in there....and maybe put in one of those harp-style lamps ;)
