    Back yard Winter Trees

    Got our first real snow storm of the year. This is a row of trees in our back yard, basically the same image just edited differently. Take a look, do you have a preference to which one you like better. Comments and advice welcome.

    I prefer the more subtle tones in the first one. In the second one you've upped the blacks and I think that makes it too contrasty (for my taste).

    Hi Kathy,

    I also prefer the first, although I'd like the top of the trees in shot.

    Not only is the second apparently more contrasty, it is about half a stop less 'exposure', comparing histograms.

    My week 5 will be a snow scene I shot this morning, so I hope I do it right
    (of course there is no 'right' really)

    Cheers,

    Thanks for looking. I did notice the top of the trees after I had posted the photo (Im a little slow). Good Luck on your photo, can't wait to see it!! I am sure you will do it right!
