12/23/2010: Snow on the Marsh 2

Another shot from my snowy morning walk. You might recognize this unnamed creek from previous views, in other seasons. Here the tide is at flood, the marsh is lightly snowed, and we even have some floating ice. It is the leaves in the water in the foreground that adds a dimension for me. You can see the streaks of the close snow that was still falling, and the white dots in the air further out.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. f3.5 @ 1/60th @ ISO 80. Landscape mode.

Processed in Lightroom for intensity and clarity. This shot took more than usual fill light to bring up the green in the trees.

And, in the spirit of experimentation, here is a B&W treatment, using the green filter effect in Lightroom. I quite like, for this kind of shot at least, what the green filter does for B&W.
