After the snow storm....
All comments always appreciated!
Thanks for looking...
EDIT....V2 and V3 with a BIG help from Richard and Ian! Cheers guys!
loovely image and the pier leads you into the picture very well
I'd like to see a bit of a S-curve tweak to give the snow a bit more zing but apart from that it's lovely Jouko, great composition aswell
Lynne beat me to it Jouko...
Beautiful. The muted colour of the snow in shadow accentuates the wonderful light in the MG and BG.
Lovely light & foreground detail
Great contrast between the warm autumn colours and the snow. I agree with Richard about the curve, but it may be worth masking off the snowy areas first as there doesn't seem anything wrong with the rest of it.
Great foreground and colours, looks a beautiful spot to be in.
Wonderful as usual.
Good colors and perspective, i like this image!
Thanks for your comments and sorry, I fell asleep I must get bored to snow
Brilliant work a must go large, superb crisp and tranquil image. Nice one Jouko
Like the tones and details you have captured Jouko - have a good weekend - Regards Richard.
Richard: Thanks for your great comment! One thing though; I have no idea, what you are meaning by that S-curve tweak??
I really am quite hopeless at Photoshop As in English too...LOL...
Ian: Masking?? I thought that was a woman thingy

Image -> Adjustments -> Curves
The box is divided into 9 segments. The diagonal line can be dragged at any point to adjust the levels at that specific area of the dynamic range. Looking at the intersections of the lines, the lower left relates to shadows, middle is midpoint and upper right is highlights.
Click the mouse on each of the intersections, this locks the line at those points. Then gently drag the bottom left lock down and the top right one up. You will see the effect immediately, just keep playing with all three until you are happy with the result. Keep turning the preview off and back on to see the effect compared to the original.
You live in a beautiful part of the world. You record it with a wonderful expertise.
...as Ian said
Can you enable mods and I'l upload a version for you?
Ian: Thanks for your lesson, BUT I´m not a fast learner...LOL...I have now printed your lesson and I´m going to learn that thingy this weekend......first I have to translate it into Finnish....any change, that YOU could do that...LOL....
Richard: Great idea! BUT think I can´t edit that mod thing any more??? With this upload...I tried, but no luck!
Excellent scene Jouko.
V3 for me
happy to be the 30th.. Another good one.. Oh V3 for me
V3 for me too, beautiful
Thank Richard for V3!
Great work! All three are lovely.
V3 works a treat Jouko...
Superb work Jouko. Trish...... Hope you get the translation sorted out so you can learn what Ian was trying to teach you, sounds hard to me, good luck.
The original works for me.
In awe of your snow shots Jouko. They are all superb!!
V1 looks fine to me Jouko
V3 for me great image
Fab - V1 gets my vote.
They are all superb
V3 for me Jouko,just has that extra little bit of something special.
V3 for me Jouko, except for what has happened to the sky. If you make the curves adjustment with a curves adjustment layer, (click on the half black, half white circular symbol at the bottom of the layer pallette and select curves). Then you can add a mask (circle in a rectangle symbol) and paint black on the mask where the sky is using a soft edged brush. This prevents the curve having an effect on that area of the image. Whatever you paint on the mask is editable at any time assumimg you save the file in psd format.
Agree re. v3 Jouko. It is an improvement...
Can't quite visualise Nigel's suggestion (can't visualise the v1 sky in v3) but I bow to his superior PS knowledge. I will try his suggestion in a couple of mine!
