    Please Note:  As explained here, due to limitations in the Gallery software, some Challenge submissions may include a larger version of the same image (e.g. for mosaics).
    Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.

Prague's Christmas Market

Every year around Christmas time, people from all over come to visit Prague's famous Christmas market.  The Old town comes alive with shoppers in this festive atmosphere, and when the snow starts falling it just becomes that much more magical.

      Winter Wonderland - 
      Show scenes with a winter theme - 
      Season 3 - Challenge #21 - Monthly (31 days) - 
      Results Announced Here!
      Thanks to @Mymyjp for the challenge idea.
       
      The ground is frozen by ice and snow,
      Falling from above, it's quite the photo.
      The sun a subtle golden glow,
      Shining o'er the mistletoe.

      For the winter warmth is here,
      People celebrate with festive cheer.
      The smell, sound and sight,
      Of the eternal winter light.

      Yes, this challenge involves creating scenes to celebrate this special time of year (at least as current in the Northern Hemisphere). You may enter up to 3 images including anything that is associated with winter as a season. From snow to Santa, it's completely up to you. What brings the sense of atmosphere and warmth to these cold winter months? Also, the scene doesn't necessarily have to be a rural landscape -- of course, it can snow on the roads and cities as well. You could really apply this theme to any desired location -- be creative!
      As usual, although not part of the requirements, image editing or use of custom content may be used for enhancement.

      Suggestion
      In SimCity 4, one possibility is to enable a basic winter effect using the "Snow" command in the Extra Cheats DLL. Or as explained here, you can just wait until Dec 25, and the game will do this automatically for the entire day.
       
      See the Possible Ideas section below for a few examples.
       
      This is a  Monthly  challenge running for 31 days.
       
      Submission Requirements
      The submitted image(s) must incorporate the theme of winter in some form.
        You may use any city-building game -- including SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, SimCity (2013), and CitiesXL / XXL.
         You may submit a maximum of 3 images into the challenge album.  
      a. All your entered images will be eligible for voting, however only your highest rated image will be used in the final ranking.
      So basically there are 3 opportunities to gain a place in the results, with no downside to submitting more than one.

      b. In the event of images having an identical rating and votes, the earlier submitted image will be selected.

      For each submission, you may link a larger version in the description, or post inside the comments section. Please see this post for clarification.
       
      For the purpose of voting, please check a full title & description are included on your image(s).
        Your image(s) must be created solely by yourself, without any assistance from anyone else.
        To qualify for entry, please ensure your image(s) are uploaded to the submissions category, and comply with these requirements.

      Voting Rules
      Votes may be cast by rating images inside the album. You may rate all entries once at any rating value (1-5). All votes are anonymous. We encourage you not to rate your own entry. Try to vote on all other entries, as this will help ensure the results are evenly distributed.  
      Suggested Voting Criteria
      Here are some ideas to help you evaluate each entry when voting:
      How well does the scene portray the mood and atmosphere of Winter? To what extent is the image central to the Winter theme? Does the image stand out as being unique or interesting? The amount of detail throughout the scene. If used, how effectively do any show/ice effects add to the overall visual appeal?  
      The winners will be the top 3 ranked images after a 10 day voting period. Reputation prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries, and the overall average rating. See this topic for more info.
      For this  Monthly  challenge, rep prizes will be given for the top 5 placed entries, along with points for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.

      The forest during winter is more awesome than one would think. The last leaves have fallen, thin fog covers everything and the first snow begins to fall.
