On days that I shoot many photos, like today, there is a process in how the dailypic is decided.  It was nice, new snow, sunny, so I went for a walk and got a set of about 60 shots. Whittle those 60 to 30, edit to bring that number down to 18, then I yell for my wife. I show here the set of 18 all at once, I ask her to pick the daily.  She looks for 2 seconds and picks one, a photo I would not have picked.  I say “are you sure?”, she looks again and tells me why she is sticking with the one she chose, in the case she liked the blue.  I personally hate blue in snow pictures and have been known to take it out just to mock nature. I try to figure out which one I will use instead, in hopes that I can show it to her and get a better reaction.  Tonight I could not… I got frustrated and now I have to post the one she chose. I have added the rest below. This is pretty common to how the dailypic is chosen many nights.  It is much easier when I shoot something specific for the post.

Don’t get me wrong I like this shot.  I actually went for the walk with the intent to get this very shot.  I love this path in a park by my house, the light there is really nice. I  hoped it would not have been traveled yet, to get the undisturbed snow.  So, I should not be complaining, it is just when I look at the set of 18, this is not the one I would have picked, the problem is none of the other ones seem to be one I would have picked either. If you like it, thank you.  If you don’t blame my wife.
