  2. Nice. Like the first one the most.

    Do you think boosting the exposure by about half a stop or so might help bring out the snow a bit more?
     
  3. Thanks I agree..should boost exposure
     
  4. The first one is quite nice. The exposure works well for me, so another half stop would probably give a different but nice appearance. When it comes to snow, the tone curve is almost always more important to me than the exposure to ensure that all the detail is revealed. One little tweak here and there in the curve can change everything about the snow.
     
  5. I agree..even more of an influence when shot through a not so clean window.:) 
     
  6. Great winter images, Bohdan!
    I like the first one best as well.
    The figures stand out better and the shape is nicely accentuated by the snow ridges.

    You didn't go out into the snow :eek: 
    :) 
     
  7. LOL..didn't go out for the first shot..second one yes.

    Your meter is exposing for 18% gray and that's what your photo looks like...the snow is gray. I did a quick boost of exposure and tweeked contrast, shadows & highlights. If you want me to delete this, no problem.

  9. I like #1 Bob. IMO Jeff's edit improved the image. You might as well play with the image a bit to find the best look to your taste :rolleyes: 
     
  10. thanks I will.
     
  11. I am seeing clipped highlights in the edit. Maybe something in between?
