This is a beautiful and thoughtful observation. My mind instantly pondered upon the silhouette being the statue and the snowperson having journeyed miles to this location, sitting down and admiring the sculptor's handywork...... as opposed to the other way around.
As always, a real gem, BlueChameleon

That snowman's pretty cool. He deserves a spot in the National Gallery. I like the contrast between the two figures.

Outstanding. The composition is extraordinary; just the right amount of space between the snowman and the woman.

Great image, whos watching over who? Although the snowman seems to have been exposed to too much sun he still stands refusing to go away quietly ;) Cool shot and proicessing.

Wonderful capture. Love the light and composition. It manages to transmit, despite the motive, a slightly uneasy mood. Awesome work :)

This is a very surprising and original shot ! A mood of Eastern countries comes out of it (well, for me) or silent movie... The game between black & white (within the characters too) is very powerful !

sculpture de neige et silhouette, une composition qui met en paralleèle la légende et l'homme, belle composition.

I love the idea of this. Excellent!!
23 Dec 2008 3:10pm
damn, even a snowman shot has a mysterious feel to it! well done!
23 Dec 2008 3:34pm
WOW such a wonderful and mysterious shot, the snowman or whats left of him looks superb, and one wonders who is watching over who
Happy Holidays to you and yours
23 Dec 2008 3:43pm
Beautiful find... wonderful mood!!
23 Dec 2008 4:28pm
Wonderful image, Sharon! Prayers to the snowman. That would be my way to communicate with the higher power :-) Great capture!
23 Dec 2008 5:06pm
Super and funny shot!
23 Dec 2008 5:11pm
It is too cold for snow people around here. Have a Merry Christmas.
23 Dec 2008 5:13pm
I enormously love this snowman, so abstract, with a so solid base and this stick of so significant magician. The man is there to celebrate it, secular tradition which you show by your point of view and this "vigneting" B&W. Bravo Sharon, and I wish you a merry Christmas and yours ;)
23 Dec 2008 5:47pm
This is an awesome find, very abstract snowman, the symbolism is totally cool ;)
23 Dec 2008 6:29pm
Beautiful silhouette staring at the snowman! =Dn
23 Dec 2008 8:03pm
an original snowy image,... Excellent capture!
23 Dec 2008 8:19pm
Now we have to decide who is whatching over whom.....
23 Dec 2008 8:22pm
This image reminds me the films by Ingmar Bergman.
23 Dec 2008 9:14pm
A snow god or goddess to protect us. Wonderful light in this image.
23 Dec 2008 9:55pm
Splendid composition, and a great combination of b/w's
23 Dec 2008 10:09pm
Amazing lighting and an all-around terrific winter image!
23 Dec 2008 10:43pm
Very nostalgic picture... excelent but lonelly.
23 Dec 2008 11:45pm
excellent...this picture has a story in it
24 Dec 2008 12:41am
I love your sense of humor and creativness in this one! cool!!
24 Dec 2008 12:53am
now that is a semi melted snowman!! must have warmed up considerably!!! a beautiful, minimal shot -- the light and silvery tones are wonderfully ethereal!!

@dj.tigersprout: On the contrary! It was -13C that day and this little guy was sitting on a fence post, and probably only 2 feet high at the most. I've been finding little snowmen all over the city, on fence posts, mailboxes, newspaper boxes and other odd things. It's been fun and trippy. We are in for it again tonight, as a huge snow fall is predicted. This may bring larger snowmen... ;-)
oh dear!!! -13?? you might as well be up in the Alaskan Arctic Circle!!! :P well, i hope if it is going to be that cold, that you at least get more of the wonderful white stuff!!! maybe a little 'snow-in' might be nice... they could cancel school and work and allow everyone to frolic in the streets and make bigger snowmen and snow-women!!! ;) happy holidays!!!
