Fresh snow reflects
Posted By: Jimbo, 02-26-2009, 06:09 PM

We got some snow last night so I went out earlier to get some shots. Very light PP work on these ones. First one was shot at 250 ISO at F13 1/60 sec on a tri-pod. The the other two were shot at 100 ISO F10 1/60 sec. All were done using my Pentax 12-24. JIM

First one in larger version as it shows off the picture better IMO. JIM

Oh, wow!..the second and third shots are absolutely amazing...I really love it. The first looks better in the larger version, but that forground 'messy' grass is a distarction.

Can you tell me what filters were used ?, and what kind of processing. Thanks.

That is an amazing view. The water and the elements within the frame are all well placed in terms of composition.

The colour and the contrast are simply amazing.

I have a few others I am working on with a different foreground which should show off the picture a little differently. I used a polyerized filter and shop everything today with a tri-pod. As far of PP work, I opened in Lightroom and straightened the horizon a bit then sent them to Photoshop Elements. A very little sharpening and then added a little contrast to the sky only. I have 20 more I am working on which I will post over the next couple of days using different prospectives to the shots along with slightly different PP. I always go back and do final touch ups on anything I print. Still in a learning curve. I do find that some shots where I use the polyerized filter, that the foreground, once the image is compressed, is slightly darker then the original. I think I will just post the larger versions moving forward. Cheers JIM

Really beautiful Jimbo. The larger size combined with more vibrant colors in the last version you posted really set it off.

The 1st image is fantastic. Well done, Jimbo. Hang this one on your wall, with all the others
I think the foreground grass etc, adds to the image...don't crop it out!!!

All of these images are simply stunning Jimbo. Love those reflections and that blue sky! With the mountains and the cloud formations as a perfect backdrop, these are really superb shots. Great work, Jimbo.
