I like this scene. The texture of the snow is enough to make it out. And the color is right on to let us know time of day. I used Silver Efex Pro after seeing Caryl use it on her night scene.

Beautiful shot!

Actually, I like all versions, and all versions produce a different reaction.

I took it this morning just lucky enough to catch the golden beams shining throught the trees.

Thumbs up Cool!

Everybody else is going High Dynamic Range and Simon is going the opposite way! You have got guts, Simon!

They are all good, but I prefer #1 as it shows the filtered sun-rays (beams, really...) through the tall trees on the right side, just above the top of the signpost, best.

Very interesting pics, Simon!

An impressive picture. I like both processed pictures very much - they bring out the wonderful lighting.

Sounds like sour grapes. Here the man goes out without lugging around all that equipment and takes a quick snapshot, and it's a winner...

Like the second shot, just feels like you are really looking into a early morning sunrise.
