Next shot from little winter story. Were are still in Katowice. this photo was taken 5 minutes before previous pic at TE. Today still 20.000 citizens of Katowice have no electricity - in case fridays' storms. Also some cell phones do not work porperly.
PS: how i protect my camera?
I do nothing to protect body and lens - I have no special bags or somethink like that. In such occasions I am wearing my canon between polar and gore tex coat. when i want to make picture i get it from this "pocket" shot some photos and put it back :):)
Pozdrawiam - Alan.
sorry for not good eng :)

Very atmospheric shot. i like the fact its B+W reminds me of a evel of a computer game i used to play Medal of Honour, but I suppose thats irrelevant!
I like your note on how you protect your camera also, I find it hard to take good shots in bad weather as I am reluctant to have it out for a long period of time.
Its amazing how many people aer out in this weather, however i imagine in poland its a lot colder than the UK so people woudl be used to it.

Great scene, well composed, very well composed...
Those footprints are really a nice pattern.

Great atmosphere of frosen day. Steps are nice, so dark in the snow. This is a nice POV and angle and you have great composition. Congrat!!

This is the kind of shot i truely like. Interesting pattern in b&w. And the tilt of the picture..
You could have probably cropped less from the right to have the complete road (or use more tilt :) ).

Magic atmosphere and great composition.

Very intriguing shot. I love the patterns made by the footprints in the snow and the stark black and white contrast. Very nice!

This black-out may be a disaster for the citisens, but what an inspiring weather for photographers:-)))
Beautiful moody picture!
LaurentM (313) 2004-11-21 14:04
Wow, i love the atmosphere of this shot. It's magical...
Nice idea to use the black and white.

Beautiful effect from the use of b&w. Nice angle to catch that regular pattern. Well done.

Très belle photo ALeksander !
Beau traitement noir et blanc mis en valeur pas la superbe et impressionante profondeur de votre image!

lubie atmosfere sennych, zasniezonych miasteczek na dwoch ostatnich Tw fotach...
RGatward (20086) 2004-11-23 16:41
That's it is a truely great compo. The pattern of feet leading to the focus point in the top left, where there's a perfectlt positioned group of people. This one would look good framed on a study wall. Yet another favourite.

I love this bold composition with the footprints in the snow occupying most of the frame and leading up to the people in the distance. The B&W adds to the cold feel of the scene. Very well done.
Curioso (9271) 2004-12-06 17:41
Very nice footprints which create that perspective. I also like the light tilting as I have the feeling I'm falling. Last things, I do love these large enlighten spots on the snow : did you made some burning trick or level adjustments to do that ? Great mood for this shot Aleksander.

niezle podoa mi sie ucia bym tak z 2 cm z prawek strony tak tuz przy tych paniach wtedy slady sprawialy by zludzenie a zarazem prowadzily by wzrok po przekatnej ale i tak robi wrazenie
Bex (105) 2004-12-13 19:19
I have added this to my favourite, I love the foot prints with different depths and grey colour, almost like a monochroic divisionism painting on the walk way . great work
losteden (1522) 2004-12-16 5:23
Dawno u ciebie nie bylem a tu taka perelka. swietnie slady wciagaja, tworza niesamowite patchwork. Podoba sie.

Pewnie już wszystko napisali i chyba nie muszę się wysilać, żeby coś nowego napisać. Bardzo mi się podoba.

A very good picture. Almost perfect which can be commented on with nothing except "wow!" I like the framing...one side is desolate and the other has people... nice lines throughout just like a painting. Good work and thanks for sharing
arth (1454) 2005-01-12 18:10
Excellent shot Aleksander ,I like the mood .The different nuances of the footprints are beautiful .A very good composition and very good contrast .Great work.

This photograph is very beautiful. It's so rich in textures and I love the lines of the composition. It feels sad, and familiar.
Ramonven (126) 2005-01-19 12:33
Interesting picture Aleksander! That you can see the footsteps so clear... Very good! Well captured! Ramon
gsgeorge (764) 2005-01-29 14:23
This is a remarkable shot, and probably one of my favorites that I've seen on TE in a long time. Everything about it is exquisite--the focus, the composition, the contrast, the angle. Excellent, excellent shot, Aleksander. Dziekuje.

I like this one very much too , with this graphical and 'dark' approch ( typically polish in my mind :)) )
utamaputranto (186) 2005-11-04 15:29
wow this picture takes my breath away.. again.. a really good dodge and burn..
greg (2835) 2006-01-30 17:25
