This is a view of snowfall which arrived in Oct 2012. To get snow at this time of year is rare but to get it with the blizzard conditions is very unusual.

I shot this with my Canon 500D and the stick 18-55mm lens set at 18mm. I processed the image for contrast and clarity in Silver Efex Pro2. Apart from this adjustments and a small crop to balance the image nothing else has been done

Have just stumbled across this, and I think it's perfect. If I'd got that shot I'd have needed to be sedated.
...Keep hearing about this Efex Pro...

Thanks Alan for your comment, I thought it was perfect as well but not good enough for the comp.

Sliver Efex Pro is a B+W processing software that can be used with photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Lightroom. Its regarded as the best software of its type and it allows easier processing of images into B+W. It isn't the only software around and everything it does can be done in PS< PSE and Lightroom but it jusr makes it easier.

Thanks Again Erik

Thanks for the info. I must admit I'm getting what I want, ,more or less, in PSE10, so probably won't bother with efex ( I'm retired, so got plenty of time to fool around with images ). But you've kind of cleared it up for me.

For heaven's sake, that image is TOO good for any comp.......it's hardcore. It's for people who really understand imagery. You'd sure never see it on a McVities biscuit tin lid...

Total respect,

Alan
