(Nikon D700, 70-300mm at 116mm, ISO 200, Exposure 1/60 sec @ f/8.0)

This past weekend we had a brief but intense snowstorm. I thought it might be fun to go shoot in the snow so I packed up my camera and drove into Ann Arbor. I ended up parking the car right in front of this store. Actually the Red Shoes store is really out of frame and what you are seeing in the background is Lexi’s Toy Box, a local toy store. I’ve always liked the exteriors of these two stores and I liked the way they looked in the snow so I grabbed a quick shot before walking around town to get some more pictures.

The processing of this image was fairly simple. I used Silver Efex pro to pull out some additional texture in the image. I didn’t like the black & white version so I set the blend mode to Luminosity to keep the color but use the effects created in Silver Efex Pro.
