Snowy peaks

The sun shone nicely for this one, though the background is darker than what it looked like. I'll happily take advice on how to get shots with bright snow that don't blind the viewer, yet retain detail in the background.

Amazing shot!
How did you take this? I like the color of the sky too. It is beautiful!

That's an amazing scene - and you've captured it beautifully. Well done.

In answer to your question, I think it's best to do a bit of color levelling (which will bring out a better contrast in the details - and foreground vs background). Then, you might want to go to 'selective color' and darken the white just a tiny bit to save human eyes!! All this in photoshop. Attaching a simple edit on half of the image to show the difference (hope you don't mind).

Hope this helps.

Amazing picture
Very cool. I love the contrast between the bright snow and the dark sky.
Looks almost unreal that place where you took this picture

peace

Thanks. I like the edit.

I'll take any re-edit anyone wants to do. I'm familiar with Photoshop, but can't say I've done any work using the selective color at all. I did a bit of leveling to it already to try and minimize the bright snow, but didnt' want to lose the skies.
