Torgny!
I like your #1 very much, because I can relate.
I like the motive, the light, colors and the mood.

Helsningar!


N.B.: It's cold here too. Minus 19,8º C this morning!

Gentlemen,

Thank you very much for viewing and the comments. Much appreciated. Snow can take any colour. I'm working on the blues. Not easy.

For the sake of experimenting I set the in camera saturation to maximum -5 today. Got this result. RAW and .jpg gave the same saturation of the blues

Don't know what conclusions that can be drawn. Picture taken 16.10, 15 minures before sunset

Simple!

Snow doesn't have any color of it's own, so it "steals" from whatever lightsource there is. Usually blue from the sky.


Not counting the yellow tell-tale signs of where your dog has been....

Hi,

Yes, white reflects colours from the surroundings and can show any colour. That's the ABC. But it also seems cameras generally oversaturate blues, especially in the blue hour.

Canon always oversaturates reds but that's another issue

On the other hand it's almost impossible to stand outside the actual colour scheme and look in. You gradually get accustomed to the actual colours and get imprisoned.

Brecht applied a "Verfremdungseffekt" to his theater work, perhaps something to strive for.

Just some thoughts. Was down on the other side of the river and tried to take some pictures. Ugly but I want to show a picture where snow never could have been white

Btw

Grey equals all colours while white equals no colour. Is it that simple. As I said, just some thoughts
