I re-edited this photo to get the weird pixel thing to go away.
Cropped, adjusted levels, resize, sharpened.

I took this photo as my first night photo with my new camera. It was raining and we've been in the middle of a winter ice storm. I set the camera in Night mode and gave it a try. I was amazed that it actually turned out.

This is a willow tree with ice covered branches.
This freezing rain occurs when the temperature in the high atmosphere is warmer than what's on the ground, then it rains up above, but by the time it hits the ground it freezes on everything it touches. Trees and powerlines break, in fact we were without power for about 5 hours last night. I'm hoping to get some clearer shots with my new camera when daylight comes.

Interesting composition, I would just clone-out the right bottom.

I really like your composition. I love looking at the ice but your looks exceptionally and original!
Great shot!

This again looks much better Lori. Your new found PP tool should help you to post many picture perfect shots in future. Well done
