Jack, it looks as if you've developed a bad :evil: attitude toward snow. However, it's an interesting effect. How'd you do it?

Barbara, I have a feeling you already know how I did it. I think you just want me to struggle to remember how I did it. :lol: Well, fortunately there wasn't that much to it, so I can sort of remember what I did, kinda, almost......I think! To start with, I just adjusted the hell out of ( curves ) until the snow looked like sand, but the truck was still red. Then, I used the burn tool to kill the brightness of the snow that was still in the trees behind the truck. Then, I lassoed the background trees and distorted them with some sort of twisty effect.....don't remember which one though. Barbara, I don't really have a problem with the snow itself, it's beautiful, but the mess it makes when it melts is what I hate.

I really didn't know how you created the effect. Honest. All I could think of was using color replacement, which I know for a fact won't work when the color you want to replace is white, so I sat here thoroughly puzzled.

I don't mind the snow either, and I don't even mind the mess--after all, it's my husband who deals with it--but I do mind what we call our Annual Glacier. We live at the top of a short but steep hill, and as the snow settles, melts, and freezes, we build up a skating rink that's at an approximate 35- to 40-degree pitch. We think "Whoopee!" when we drive down it, but driving back up requires guts, speed, and much cussing.
