That's *very* yellow on my monitor.

Eetu - I had a look at the original and I think the problem is a little bit that the bright sky because you're shooting into the sun has underexposed what should be bright snow so it's come out a bit grey which makes it look dirty. I tried a version here starting with your original from the other thread with a bit of HDR, unsharp, highlights/shadows etc. to try and brighten the snow without losing the sky. I think it looks nice but don't know if it looks like the reality or not:

Many thanks Martin! I used your software on the following. I guess there is still some room for other post processing tricks.. just need to learn. Thanks again. Ned

Hi Eetu...we have lot's of snow here, as you do...about 5.5 months of it. White was the most difficult colour for me. What I eventually did, was reset my camera (K10D) back to factory settings. I had done a lot of custom settings.

That seemed to take care of the problem, however I have to mention, I've never been able to manipulate the AWB to my total satisfaction.

Thanks Les! Being that this was sunset, albeit 12:30 p.m., facing into the sun will always be a challenge. There was a distinct blue tint on the snow... and with the sunset, well there was some red. If it wasn't so cold, I would have experimented with the White Balance selections. Thanks again!
