[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was skiing last weekend in Pärnävaara.

Weather was "postcard-like" but since I am not very fond of postcards tried to get more dramatic look by simple post prosessing with curves and levels.

Hope you like it.

Hi Pentti,

appreciating images maybe very post-processed but also very creative -one of the goals of TL- i appreciate this photo.The colours, as you write in your note, convey some drama to the whole, a blanket of cold silence, but also a pleasant winter atmosphere.The image is very clean and sharp, good also the composition.But you've only played with levels and curves?



Hello Pentti,
Wonderful vertical composition,
Interesting colours and shadows...
Best wishes

Hi Penti,

Bonjour Pentti
Une composition tout à fait inespérée, avec des couleurs spéciales, j'aime l'idée...

Beautiful light in this image - the title says it all! I like the composition with the twisting road leading the eye into what appears to be the warmth of the late afternoon sun. The PP work adds an interesting perspective but it would be nice to see the original picture postcard image as well. Nice work.


HI Pentti..nice shot. excellent light and tones....beautiful colors and composiiton..nice work.
