Shapes and Colors_Snow World_Harbin_China

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm lens @ 24mm. Exposure Details: 1/400 second @ f11 ISO 100.This photo features water channels and a distant bridge at Snow World, Harbin in far northeast China.

I was interested in the shapes and warm/cool complimentary colors present within the scene. Notice how the color of the snow varies depending on the light source that illuminates it. The frozen water, turned ice, and the thigh-high pilled snow provides interesting foreground subject matter and helps to lead the eye towards the traditional Chinese bridge in the distance.

A large depth-of-field (DOF) was required to enable me to emphasise the texture in the foreground snow and to provide a sense of sharpness in the distant bridge and trees.
