SNOW PLOW on BAY at HERKIMER STREETS

By TimothyDMorton  
Once home corrected the COLOUR BALANCE in Camera-in-the-RAW and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where I resized it 401 x 600 px and then applied the UNSHARP MASK till I liked the results, and colour adding nothing to so I used the automatic settings of Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 to convert into a B&W image and lastly saved in JPEG for sharing with everyone.

Timothy, - for a critique upload, you are allowed to upload a 1000 pixel image. You might not have realized that, so why not start doing so, - and your file size can be as large as you like.

Interesting but rather under exposed. Auto exposure and snow. A classic. You need to brighten up and add some contrast. Your LCD will tell you this, although, in these conditions, you may not have looked, but your software should have done so.

Hi Timothy, snow images are possibly some of the hardest to get right regarding the snow as most cameras tend to make snow look grey as Paul has said a way to combat this is to check the histograms and make sure you are getting the most from your exposure. In my MOD I wanted to keep the sense of dark snowy weather so instead of applying my changes over the whole image I selected specific areas and adjusted the levels of those areas to get the look I wanted but keeping as I say the over all feel of the image.

Let me know what you think of the MOD

I like simple. The simple way to deal with snow exposures is to dial in between plus one and plus two stops exposure compensation. This won't always be perfect for fine art applications, but it will definitely give more realistic and satisfying tones for snaps and reportage shots.

Yes - looking at the histogram will tell you to change things - but it's a good idea, always, to decide if the subject is unnaturally light or dark before shooting, and apply a little compensation from the off...

Ah! Another chance. Can someone define fine art for me. I have no idea what it is!
