Default First Snowfall

Wish the snow looked more detailed.

With, maybe something like +.7 ev compensation there probably would have been a little more detail in the snow. I would have dialed in something like that automatically for the white snow.

Overly dark or white subjects often fool metering systems.

Thank you Greg. This is good to know in the future. Maybe I should have bracketed the exposure? I think you can do that with the PL2.

Yes, definitely can, over a few stops. You could select the best or blend a combination of two or more to gain dynamic range.

Hi James,

Looks like you got just about the right amount of snow, enough to remind everyone that 'tis the Season. But, not so much that you really have to do anything with it.

It's deceiving, had 4" on the walks/drive to blow out. Had one big storm last year that left drifts on the drive as high as four feet.
