This is a bit brighter...
I'm going to be the dissenter and say that the brigthened image appeals to me more for the following reasons: 1) it conveys a sense of a sunny day after a heavy snow; 2) the lighter barks on the trees eliminates the perception of the brown tinge that I noticed on the initial image. Great image! Jay

Being from Arizona, I have no idea at all what all of that white stuff is?

In all seriousness, #1 is an ABSOLUTE STUNNING image!!!!! I really like it!

The brightening for me is a just tad much, personally I would tone it down 1 notch.

The rest are all great, I am just partial to the first one.

Yeah, right.

While I'm not familiar with Tumbleweed, I remember slipping on ice one January in Tucson, and a couple of snowy nights in Sierra Vista one year many years ago. Not to mention the fact that they close the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in winter every year due to snow.

My vote is for the original. The snow is white as can be. Don't notice any tint. I also think that the brightness/contrast is well balanced.

Next time you try a shot like this, how about trying itin B&W. I think that the contrast between the white snow and darker shadows/ branches would work well in B&W. Scenes like this always evokememories from the mythic works of Ansel Adams.

On a side note, how do I go about calibrating my monitor. I do notice a difference when viewing pics on my desk top monitor and my laptop.

I still stick with #1. Because thats how it looks, snow with low sun light. The pic is very well balanced IMHO.
