This is using various contrast and levels changes. The larger original file would probably pull more detail than the small one does but it gives you an idea. You can now see the storm type clouds and the snow doesn't have a green tint.

I like this shot Jason,Here is another edit. Might be a little over the top. Definitely get back to this location. With the right light this could be great.

Thanks to donnau and sadiedane, both of your edits are much better than mine. and Sadiedane can you tell me your edit process roughly? I am thinking about after I finish this course I probably take photo shop courses.

Thanks Oleg. I agree with you that my process lost texture and trees underexposed. But I am not a fun of HDR as lot of photo competitions are not allowed HDR. I will try better post processing and post here.


Jason, I also made an edit to bring out snow texture. It probably looks acceptable but if the shot had to be printed full resolution then processing shadows would bring too much noise. My point about HDR was not about oversaturated style but simply collecting all information you may possibly need to make the photo look the way you like it. I understand your point about the contests not accepting multiple exposure blending but I am sure they would also reject highly processed photos. If you only want to use processing that is acceptable to photo competitions it will greatly limit your post processing possibilities.

Sure Jason. I used Topaz adjust first. I then did a hue saturation adjustment to bring up the trees & applied a warming filter at about 50% opacity. As Oleg pointed out you do not have to over saturated as I did. (as I stated was a bit over the top) One of my biggest faults in processing images is over saturating (but I really like the look) I do like Olegs edit.
Here is my edit with saturation opacity down quite a bit.
