I'm not sure whether it is deliberate, or not, but I do love the fact that you have edited the picture in a way that snow is coloured orange, which is most commonly associated with warmth, which is obviously, the opposite to snow!
The way the photo was taken draws your eye down the middle of the picture, emphasising a sense of journey and curiosity (where does the path go? where has it been? why is there a lamp?) The Lamp also makes me think of Narnia, which, helps give a sense of wonder and apprehension to the photograph.
The photograph certainly does give a quiet atmosphere and almost a haunting one, which is sometimes hard to capture, and yet makes me think of Christmas and the association of family, friends, warmth and joy!
All in all, a good photograph, as it is atmospheric and encourages the eye to wonder and the mind to think!

The first thing I noticed when I looked at this, was the orange. It was very unsetteling and somewhat eerie and creepy. It reminded me that Finland is still a place of Fairy Tales ... the ones that don't end so well for the main characters. After the glow someone subsided I was able to take in the scenery and noticed how the light at the back of this photo, out of the glow of the orange fit in just right to give this a good feeling for me. It wasn't until later I seen the snow. All in all, this is a wonderful peice that's very creative and one that I enjoyed.

well you can use those 'pulse-gloves' or whatever they're called up in Finland... or just those...  static.smartkids.dk/smartguy/1… and photographing should be .....easier :p Of course...down to -20 or lower, I'd avoid being outside.... unless it's snowing of course... but then ...ok enough blabbering. :)

Hmm i don't know if they would be better than the gloves i have, i will have to find a solution before winter though, i like my finger when i can move them :D

I would suggest wearing two pairs of the ones I linked you then. You can, if you get one bigger size or something. I use them for work.... I like being able to move my hands as well there, since I carry alot and paint sometimes and it's FREEZING where I work during winter, because of drafts. But hey - you're in Finland.... they should have plenty of solutions for cold weather there, as they do here :p

lol i will see. If i have enough layers of gloves it will have to be enough at some point :D Last year i had one thick pair of gloves and a pair of nippens on them but still that wasn't enough when being out for hours on coldest weather and riding a bike.

how cold is it where you work anyway? -40?? I'm a bit surprised the lens doesn't freeze and break :facepalm:

Well, the most important thing to know when you have your fingers out for a walk in this weather, is to rub them together every now and then to keep the warmth and blood flowing. Otherwise, you can just completely lose all feeling altogether...but maybe that's a solution as well... then you don't have to worry about freezing on your hands.. (cause you can't feel them) ...

nope...but I'm sure a country such as Finland actually have very good solutions to your problem. You just have to find the right shops :D

Hmmm in winter usually around -15, it can get down to -40 but that is unusual. On a sunny day it is usuall about -20. But then i'm biking at that cold weather which makes it feel colder :D But yeah as long as i feel the cold and fingers hurt, i am save. They are still usable :D

I've always found street lights to be eerie, especially orange ones :o What a great portrayal, and the snow adds a nice touch!

This reminds me of winter where I am. The snow piles on branches and makes everything look like it has a coating of faux fur. The streetlights turn it pink like that and it contrasts with the blue parts, and I can stand in the street and just listen to the snow that sounds like soft rain.

Same place feels like a whole different world when covered with snow. Not so friendly for fingers when taking photos but snow feels very magical in that cold especially.
