Having some issues with getting the snow white and it not being blown out. Ideas would be appreciated......before I toss the computer out the window. #1226368

Christie I really love this photo!! The bright red against the snow is stunning. To me the snow looks fine . . . but I haven't put my contacts in yet today. :) #8294402

Christie, this certainly IS bold! lol I did not notice that the snow was off. It IS gray, but really white might be too much???? Sorry! I would start by using the adjustment slider if you want to try lighening it.

One thought I do have is that the image seems to need to be tilted just a tad to the left. I feel it leans to the right as is.. Could just be me! lol #8294435

Very BOLD, very nice. I'm thinking much whiter and it might be too much. I love the contrast as it is. We just don't have covered bridges around here so you are very lucky to be able to photography these. #8294709

Excellent Christie... and I agree the Snow is just fine as is. I have never seen outside of movies and photograpy a covered bridge ... other than the iron girder variety! How fortunate you are to have such a great subject! #8294870

this a beautiful imagae christie, I agree with every one else. if you want to see the snow whiter this is what aimee told me to do: I'd try a levels adjustment first...maybe a high pass filter and then duplicate and do an overlay blend adjusting the opacity to taste see what you think? #8295308

Well I'm not sure those directions were for white snow, but what the heck...you could try it anyway! I think it looks just fine as is and I really like this version of it. That color really stands out and I like how there is a hint of color in the leaves on that foreground tree. :~) #8295480

Cristie I think you have it about perfecta shown here. There may be the slight tilt that Deb mentioned, but it may be an optical illusion (where is Dale he will know for sure)

I don't think it needs to be whiter but the adjustment slider is where I would start too if you want it a little different.

I love the shot as presented with a great POV and very nice depth to the shot. The color looks great and as Aimee said I love the hint of color in the FG tree. Beautiful scene and beautifully photographed. #8295567

Christie, this is a lovely shot and I think the snow looks great. There is a bit of blow out but that can easily be fixed by opening the image in the raw editor and sliding the recovery slider to the right. (Thanks for turning me onto that Mike)

Deb is correct on the tilt but it is really slight. Use the vertical on the left side of the bridge opening for reference. Would also suggest while in the raw editor, to increase the clarity slider to the right and decrease the saturation just a tad.

Love this shot with it's nice contrast and interesting composition. Well done. #8297013

Ellen H. Robertson level-classic January 14, 2010

Bold, very much indeed. (Do not throw your computer out the window, they do not like snow.) I too think the snow looks fine. I really like the angle of the bridge and that you can see thru the windows. The red is outstanding against the snow. #8297736

Beautiful shot as is, Christie - but trying what D suggested will work I'm sure #8314426

Did you ever try entering it...as I came back to this shot today I realize again just how beautiful it is. At least try to enter it! #8351059
