    Vista, path and tree

    We finally had some blue sky and warm weather so I went snowshoeing and I got my standard 3 photos: a vista, a path and a tree.
    (Note to self: Shoot something else soon and not a dog either)

    Small mountain vista
    Vista, path and tree

    Sparkly snow
    Blazing earlyish morning sun caught the glimmer of the snow, but then I went willy nilly in ACR and did some -clarity and turned it B&W.

    Tree
    I don't know if I quite captured it, but there are layers and layers of snow packed on the limbs in a really precarious manner. Seemed like a good B&W opportunity.
    Vista, path and tree

    Enjoy. C & C welcome.

    Lovely pictures, Debbie. To me, the trees in the background of the second one are a little muddy -- I wish there were more contrast and definition in the trees. But maybe it was hazy? You sure can see the snow glistening, though -- great job on capturing that.

    Thanks Elise. It wasn't hazy, its definitely my post processing, things took a funky turn after turning it into a jpg and uploading here. I love the negative clarity effect on the snow and it didnt look quite so hazy and obvious on the trees until I uploaded it here, but I noticed the same thing after posting. I"ll have another go.

    Maybe, it is a mistake, but I try to avoid grey color if it is possible. Personally me like a photo black-and-white. Good and attractive pictures!

    Yes I would certainly try a little extra brightness on the second photo. But don't overdo it; possibly working on a layer with a mask for the brightness and combining the two so the snow doesn't overexpose.

    Yegor - Its not a mistake. In ACR I set the "Clarity" to a negative value because I liked the way it smoothed the snow, but it did not do well for the trees and it was not as obvious, for whatever reason, until posted here. Thanks for your comment..I've been thinking about "avoid grey".

    Welcome! It is necessary to try a way of Geoff F. I am meanwhile not so good in a photoshop... Layers with masks while a riddle for me. I am not able to use a mask
