[fix it] the long walk

as requested, here is the color version of my B&W post. (http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=372)
i purposely underexposed it so that i can get the details (haven't recieved Hoya CPL yet at this time).
i'm not sure i used the right underexposed technique or not.
oh yeah, btw i shot this using 18-70mm.

here are the exif.
Camera model: NIKON D50
Date/Time: 20071:13 129:56
Resolution: 800 x 532
Flash used: No
Focal length: 22.0mm (35mm equivalent: 33mm)
Exposure time: 0.0031 s (1/320)
Aperture: f/9.0
Whitebalance: Manual
Light Source: Fine weather
Metering Mode: spot

feel free to fix it. B&W version or whatever version that u think is nice.

Did Ilford style black and white conversion, tweaked the curve a bit for better tonal range, then boosted contrast a little and sharpened it up.

My version

My attempt... PS CSII
It's a bit rough... Sorry 'bout that...

1. Copied the whole pic
2. Change the original to greyscale
3. Changed to Tritone
- White
- Pentone (Curved)
- Black (Curved)
4. Changed the levels to make it darker
5. Changed back to RGB
6. Created new layer and pasted the original pic I copied earlier
7. Erased the sky on the Tritoned pic
8. Changed the opacity of the pasted pic.

P/S: Look for an extra skier... Hehehehe (Can't help myself)

hahaha... naah, i'm just kidding with ya, woodnocks.

i'm comparing ST's b&w conversion and i think ST's version brought up more details & texture of the snow ground.

My 'overexposed version:
1. 100% desaturation
2. Set white point(level adjustment) on the white cloud
3. Crop away the big white sun.

here's my attempt:

DSC_38302007-01-13__FIXIT[mobbes].jpg

Notes:
Make the snow white first - selective color layer, work on the whites
Correct under-exposure - curves layer - push histo as right as possible without blowing off, mask out sky
Enhance sky - gradient fill layer to heart's content, mask out snow
Flatten

B&W version

DSC_38302007-01-13__FIXIT[mobbes-bw].jpg

Note:
Take color version & simple channel mixer mono, no curve

I really love this shot - great composition with strong diagonals, fg, mid-g & bg semua ada. The "dirty" dark spots on the snow are actually shadows from the roughed up snow, tracks & footprints. The difficulty for me was how to make the snow white without losing these details.

Boleh kah?

ps: I don't find the blown out sun distracting - rather it catches my eyes and I naturally follow the flare into the rest of the picture. I love this pic
