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

Beautiful. The muted colour of the snow in shadow accentuates the wonderful light in the MG and BG.

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.

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.

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! Wink
