Most of the shoppers have vanished by the 24th, since this is our big night with the Christmas dinner and opening of presents. I had some last minute shopping to do and brought the camera. The temperature has gone up again, which makes the snow heavy and wet and perhaps more visible.
This image was taken at 1/400 sec. I would have preferred a longer shutter speed to make the snow appear as stripes instead of dots. But you don't always have the time to fiddle with the settings.
Postprocessing in Camera Raw I pulled the Clarity slider almost all the way to the left. This adds a dreamy feel to the image.
If you perfer a hint of colour in the image you can reduce the opacity of the B/W layer in Photoshop.
Which version do you prefer?
