    So I took a break from editing yesterday to go get the new lens. Having another crack at a couple of shots again today, this is another one from the other morning.. Sunrise just peeking in on the horizon and the city glowing beneath the clouds. The stars were pretty much invisible to the naked eye at the time and I found focusing pretty difficult due to it being almost pitch black and my better half taking off with her headlamp!

    Something I am really looking forward to challenging myself with again soon, that's for sure..

    Anyways, Here I was, between the day and the night, the earth and the sky...

    What a stunning image it is too, beautifully taken and it could be out of a Mad Max movie.

    Thanks Dave, I also thought it had some kind of other worldly feel / look to it ... Unfortunately the wife is off with her mountaineering club this weekend so I won't make it back there, but will def. try the weekend after ..

    This is as much a dink as anything else and should be taken as such...blue snow, like blue sand is something that has always bothered me in a scene...so it is personal preference more than some obscure rule...

    To rid myself of it's properties, I use the menu item, Image-Adjustments-Match Color Neutralize which essentially removes the color cast, in this case "Blue" from the snow without affecting the blue in the sky.

    Nice tip, wasn't aware of this option in PS, but have found myself trying other methods, Cheers I'll give this a go! (as blue sand/snow) bugs me too..


    First try failed :D It adjusted the entire image (inc. sky..) will require more practice.

    As it got lighter, it got easier (for me) to focus, still freezing cold but I thought I'd show the next stage here as well, it was another beautiful way to start a weekend..
    I know the foreground may take away from this image for some, but I liked the windswept snow dunes and the shadows they began to cast..

    First, make sure you are working on a duplicate layer. If you find the adjustment takes away from the sky, add a layer mask to the layer and bring back that which you want with a black brush.
