Second posting of this image as I took on board advice regarding contrast from both CB and RangerPaul. The second attempt is so much better than the first I didn't want to leave the first on the site.
Thanks to mick_c · shaz4 · purplejellyfish500 · TeeCee · rangerpaul · stanleyj · mroch06 for commenting/voting on the previous version.
Taken last Tuesday overlooking Ambleside whilst most of the south of the country was struggling with loads of the white stuff. We got about 3" on the Sunday night but most was gone by Tuesday as you can see. It left behind a very surreal view with lush green grass in the valley, hints of autumnal colours on the trees and wintery scenes on the high fells. I took this as I liked the way the layers stacked up. Hope you like it too.
Contrast and balancing of the light between foreground and distant hills was done using grad filters in ACR. Final tweaking using burn tool after opening in PS.
Comments and criticisms welcome so please tell me what you think.
Thanks for looking,
