It’s getting chilly outside and is a perfect time to shoot that weather for the cold Instagram challenge. Especially considering a large number of fair weather photographers out there that miss this great season. You can hunt for color, go for an all grey scale shot with this snow, or even a family photo of the kids playing outside.

It’s the time of the year for your Christmas shots and this week it’s your challenge. As everyone does not participate in Christmas you can upload anything of the holiday season or your respective religion.  Merry Christmas, now get shooting!

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_hohoho.

Toby’s Winner:

Frosty kale #prtv #prtv_cold #kale

A photo posted by ten8e (Heather) (@ten8e) on

Frosty bits on the kale just pops with that color. The frostiness of the kale makes me feel cold and it works perfect for this challenge.

Toby’s Honorable Mention:

I love this tree! The post processing is great with a crisp black and white. The composition is perfect with the straight on shot of the tree cropping the buildings.

I love this photo from Ursula. I saw this and it made me smile, it’s got a great balance with a tall flag and teeny tiny snowman.

Roy’s Winner:

Officer's row winter edition

A nice chilly fit for the winner of #PRTV_cold. The black and white with a low contrast really help to push the feeling of the photo. I do tend to think though a shorter aspect ratio would really help to focus the shot.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Its summer here so this drink was the coldest thing i could find. #prtv_cold #cocktails

A photo posted by Tony Lawrence ( on

As I said, cold was not limited to snow and Tony did just that. It’s a good out of the box shot and the color contrast between the flower and berries works quite well.

Roger makes it in on a edited image using a tutorial making the rounds on social media. In this shot he’s transformed a grassy scene into an icy one with a bit of editing making for a nice frosty photo.
