Better Martin, but you do have a few overexposed and burnt out areas.

I downloaded you original in Photoshop CS6. Your white balance is correct as shot. the image needs to be exposed +4 before it even begins to show overexposure, and I ended up with +2.85 to correct it. One of the thinks you can do, - and maybe you are already doing it, is to use a circular polariser, - its almost required in conditions like this. It will give you a deep sky, good mountain contrast, and white snow when exposed properly.


I have a modified shot of your original shot with no WB changes, only exposure, with the upper area of the sky underexposed a little in Photoshop that I would be happy to mail you as an example.

Its good to see someone taking and responding to advice.


regards


Willie

Thank you Willie and Brian for your advises,

I did nothing special, just set the white balance to auto in gimp, when I took the picture I had WB auto mode on my camera as well.

Taking pictures in these "extremly good" conditions is not so easy as it seems. Yeah I already read some articles about how to take pictures of snow and there were simillar advices as you did that the over-exposure should be used.

To be honest I tried it once and the results were not excellent. From that time I got a little bit scared of using it... and I'm often using exposure -1/3 or - 2/3 as I have still feeling that my Canon EOS 50D makes pictures quite bright when having the exposre correction on 0.
Anyway you are right, it worths to experiment unfortunately while taking this picture I didn't have much time for it.

Winter is coming so hopefully I'll have oportunities to experiment with snow pictures. Smile

Willie, thank you for your kindliness, I'm sending you an e-mail.

Have a nice evening

This is much better, but the highlight has burnt out. It's better to get it right first time, but well done for trying to correct it. Willie has taken the time to work on it in Ps so well done him. Keep learning I have been learning our wonderful art for more than 40 years!
