We just returned from Yosemite Valley where the Big Leaf Maples are going off. The oaks are coming on as well, some dogwoods though many look a bit brown. Many nice leaves on the ground.

I posted a few photos here http://dittli.wordpress.com

Wow! Awesome. Now I know why I am still a lowly amateur and others are professionals.

I like #3, but the snow in 2, and especially 1 has to much of a cyan cast in
it for my taste.

I've seen your site, you've got nice work. Your just too smart to take something fun and ruin it by making it work! :smirk:

Maverick, I see absolutely no cyan cast on the snow in either one of those shots.

Hey Mav

Good eye, I absolutely agree. These images are pretty much straight out of the camera (converted to jpg w/minor tweaking in Preview). Since I post process all my images I leave my camera WB on daylight and take care of color shifts later.

My wife, boss and cataloger extraordinaire, doesn't allow me to PS any images until she has metadata and numbered, screws up the workflow. I get in trouble for just posting them, so I have to be sneaky.

So sometimes I get excited with new work and post it before I should. I'll fix the cyan in the final tiff. Thanks for the input.

Well, I don't know. I think it's "acceptable", snow is afterall a bit blue in the shade. But if you were to open that image in PS and run the info wand over the snow I think it would favor cyan. If it was side by side with white I think it would be more noticeable. I do like my snow pretty white even in the shade.
