View Full Version : Last Snow for this year

02-20-2010, 05:31 PM
Pretty much the last snowy landscape for this year, after spring finally came to Germany (by "blessing" us with cold yucky rain instead of nice snow)

There was no planning or set up. I pretty much saw this, stopped the car, got out and shot. Luckily I had the CP on the lense.

Any feedback, pp suggestions or comments welcome.

What part of Germany are you living in?

I like this pretty much as it is. The white balance is a bit off which has created a blue/cyan cast to the photo so I'd probably try to correct that.

I like the composition very much. I also love the shadows in this shot.

Just under the sun is a very difinitive triangle of white ... I'd be blurring or cloning that out ... just doesn't look right to me.

Lovely shot though.

What MA said :)
I like the composition and the light and shadow.

I won't repeat MA but I do like the perspective here.

I just love the shadows here....just IMO well done!

Thanks for your comments

What part of Germany are you living in?

I live in Heidelberg, the shot was taken on the countryside in Odenwald.

Thanks for your tips. You're right. Heres the edited version. I adjusted the white balance and took care of the weird looking sun.

I hope the white balance is ok. On one of my monitors the snow is how I like it (white) on the other monitor it's a little too warm, but I guess until I get a calibration system I'll be flying blind.

Looks a bit too warm but still a big improvement.

Lovely composition. The snow is a bit warm on my computer as well. Still, a real nice shot though. :)

Hi Sephibox, I think the texture on the road looks great. you did a good job on fixing the sun. es ist sehr gut!

Yep - Richard is right. The second try ist sehr gut ;-). Maybe it is some too much yellow touch now?

Danke for your feedback. :)

So how is this? I feel this gets closest to what it was with a global adjustment. I would like to avoid doing localized white balances in ps, which probably would look strange

I like this version the best. Well done!

The cast looks the best in this 3rd shot imo. Nice shot!
