Re: Snow scenes...

What lovely pictures!

I'm a Florida native so have to guess at what this snow scene may look like, but I invision crystals on the fine branches with the setting sun sparkling through like a soft prism.

Texture map layer set to luminocity with a soft brush mask to paint out the color on the foreground and far shore line. Then a HSL and Curves adjustment layers to tweak the color and mood.

Re: Snow scenes...

Patricia,
Beautiful pictures. I would like to congratulate you on an excellent choice of a camera. I was looking at Digital Rebel for some time, finally settled on a different model...Now I wish I didn't

Photoshop, basic filters.

Swampy, I like snow, but next time I have to clean my driveway at -20 I will remember that some fortunate Florida natives do not know how snow looks like..

Re: Snow scenes...

WOW you have all been sooooooo busy, been really mad today as the broadband connection was disconnected by the phone company...ALL DAY!!!

Peter...Love all of these...very nice effects...It has been said that we will not have a white one this year....hope they are wrong!!!

Stosh...lovely ...you have really popped the colors and the frame looks great..

Craig...Love the colors on the snowy trees...it worked really well...and i have been nattering Peter too...for a tute!!!

Swampy...This is a great look you have devised...really nice!!!

Pavel...Fab...the pic is great....In actual fact the pic you painted was taken with my first digital camera...a sony cybershot just 2 mpx...it really does take lovely scenic shots but not so good people ones...Some of them were taken with my Canon A300 powershot 3.6 mpx.....this is why i am waiting for the snow...to see waht the Rebel can do???? What camera did you get???

Patricia...run out of space..yes i know...i do waffle o n....

Well, I almost got it... Actually I saw that your cyclamen photos @ innograpx were taken by the Rebel (according to metadata), so I assumed these pics were taken by the same camera.
I have Panasonic FZ30, the camera has a few nice features, not to happy about the noise, though.

Re: Snow scenes...

That is really good Pavel, your style suits the photo so well...
I am a little confusing...using 3 cameras (could be more if i get the film ones on the go!!!) Only had the Rebel just over 2 months....the cyclamen shots i did in the last two weeks...so you were correct!!
Sorry about the noise...why does it have that??? With new cameras i think it takes a while to get close to perfection...if we ever do???

Here are two more from me..

The one looking out to sea...I did aniso and curves and the snowy trees ink outlines..both framed with an action in Photoshop...
