    Tree covered in snow

    Hi all,

    I've been absent from CiC for several weeks: events caught up with me and I had to take a break from photography.

    I went walking in the mountains outside Madrid last weekend and took a photo of this tree covered in snow. PP in Lightroom involved increasing exposure 1.5x, and increasing blue saturation and reducing luminance a wee bit.

    C&C welcome.

    That's like a scuplture. I think the final presentation of that is very striking; i.e. noting the comment about PP actions.

    What are all the white dots?

    To me it looks like it's covered in icing sugar; I want to go up and lick it!

    The white dots are flecks of snow floating in the sky.

    Aahh! Obvious when it's pointed out.

    Here's another shot of the same tree, this time including more of its surroundings.

    Little PP done on it; decreased blue luminance in Lightroom.

    To be honest, my first thoughts about this photo was that it was a macro shot of fungi. I would never have considered it to be a tree.

    But, fortunately, we don't get that amount of snow where I live.

    The second edit is excellent.

    I like the one showing more surrounding it better, both are neat shots Tony
