A while back I started to browse through all my foto files. I was looking for images I passed up because I couldn’t figure out how to process them. My aim was to see if I could do something with them now.

I found some from a January trip to Comb Ridge. Nick and I stopped at a spot where there was a variety of ice crystals formed in a little depression. I shot quite a few, but let the scene and my camera outsmart me by underexposing a whole bunch. I kind of gave up on those images because I couldn’t get them right.

Now a few years later and with an improved version of Photoshop and a lot more experience, I decided to try my luck. Both of these images were fiddled with quite a bit through the process, from opening up the exposure to converting to Black-and-white. As a bonus, they match the season.

See what you think.

Oh, by the way. I signed up with a company that will clean out the malware that was infesting my RSS feed. By today you shouldn’t have to see any more viagra ads in the teaser. Finally!
