This is a shot best taken in portrait form John, unless you have a really good composition to support a landscape format.
In this, theres nothing to see, or that adds to the shot for about 50% of the frame. The exposure and colour balance are good, with the snow being white.
The shot itself is a tad soft here, but Im certain the original is sharp. The softness is due to loss of detail during compression when re sizing for EPZ.
Ive cropped, sharpened and added a little contrast, added a small frame, flipped horizontally, as images often appear more pleasing when "read" left to right.
To re size properly:
First check image size; then chamge pixels per inch to 72; then set the longest edge to whatever is allowed (600 pix); then ensure the re sampling mode is set to Bi-Cubic; press enter. Save the show with a new name, and adjust the compression to give the required file size.
Then check sharpness at 100%. If it needs to be a little sharper, use the Unsharp Mask tool as follows:
Threshold = 3; Radius = 0.8; set the Amount slider all the way to the right to oversharpen, and then slide slowly to the left until its sharp, with no halos around edges. Then OK and you done, - but save again.
One addition to Paintmans recommendation for minimum speed for landholding, - its 1/(focal length * crop factor), so at 200mm its 1/(200 * 1.6) = 1/320, or next highest if this is a speed which is not available to you. You can increase ISO if necessary to allow the use of the higher speed.
I hope you like the mod, and find this helpful, and dont forget to provide your shot settings!
