Default Ice on the Connecticut River

Usually the river is covered in snow, but we had some rain that stripped it down to the ice. I only managed to grab a couple of pictures before the sunset ended, but one turned out. Taken with the panasonic 25 mm. Used sharpening in photoshop around the trees.

Yes, I like this shot. The blue of the ice and snow in the shade is nicely counterbalanced by the golden sunlight showing at the top. Kinda like a reminder that no matter how cold, spring will be bringing warmer weather before too long.

Thanks to both of you! I tried to keep the highlights under control, but they still seem to be a bit blown out. We have some really interesting light here in the winter, since the sun never gets very high during the day to burn off the moisture. The last few sunsets have been very nice.

Highlights woulda been tough to control using just one file without grossly underexposing so much of the rest. Never see water do that around here to any extent, much less a whole river It's beautiful.

A gradient or radial filter applied to the sky could be used to push down the highlights and exposure for this situation to achieve more balance in the sky.

I did take a few at various exposures. I'll see if I can work with the others and combine.
