This is a lane that I shoot every fall. Today I took my lunch hour and went to shoot it veiled in the recent snow we've had. I used custom white balance (gray card). I do not have a calibrated monitor, so I can only evaluate what I see--is there a noticeable tint to this shot? If so, what color? Shot with the FA 50mm f/1.4, f7.1 @1/320 sec.

I see a tinge of brown, but I think it is more my brain seeing the barks of the trees. I think it is a well composed image. If any thing, I would have given it a tad more exposure to emphasize the sunny day. Overall, I like it...nice job! Jay

Thanx--I agree with the exposure, but the lane is pretty shady. I will have to play with it a bit more. I think the brown comes from the trees and some of the remaining brown leaves on the trees. It looks pretty good from my HP 8250 printer.

I don't have a calibrated monitor, but I wouldn't mess with the original - I thought it was bright enough and I love the picture!

Agree! I also prefer #1, and that's a real good pic.

Adjusting the Highlights/Shadows with a touch of USM helps bring out the detail in the bark whilst emphasing the shadows.

Hi,

When shooting snow pics I use a polarizer.

I like Catbells version with more detail in the snow.
