This is the HDR version of yesterdays shot, but to my mind it resulted in a different style of image, so I thought I'd upload it separately.

Thankyou to everyone for all the comments and votes on yesterdays shot.
I was actually in and out of the house 4 times during the evening, drying the camera off each time (and me) But I'll wrap up the series tomorrow with the last few and hope you can put up with them for one more day!

For this shot I blended yesterdays shot with a 2nd version 2 stops underexposed and which had managed to freeze the snow rather than produce the trails. The resulting image from the HDR processed with photomatix gave more snow than the sum of the parts, but I liked it.
I boosted the clarity of the mono and #2 is back to colour but fairly strongly desaturated.
Still not sure which of the three versions I prefer, which is why I've shared all of them Wink

All comments and criticisms very welcome

Lot of work and suffering by the sound of it, but it paid off. These are super images . I prefer V1 has a nostalgic quality to it.

Just viewed them all Tim and all look good, a lovely winter's scene - conveyed best by the mono for me, just really adds to the atmosphere!

Very different to yesterday's, I do like the desaturated effect. In colour particularly, this has a textile look, as though viewed through netting. Interesting.

I appreciate what you are attempting and admire your tenacious reworking, but I must admit to preferring yesterday's colour image. And I find I'm astonishing myself writing that, because I usually go for the more muted tones!!!!

(Admittedly I think the mono is best of all, so I remain true to nature Smile)

The colour's not bad but I think the mono is miles better. Snow and b/w are made for each other.
