Editting done: I upped the contrast and saturation, and lowered the gamma slightly.
Edit: No, I did NOT use photoshop for this image. Like you can see above the editting done is minor. I took this photo on a misty morning in a forest where the snow, which had conserved the colours of the leafs on the ground well, had almost melted away. The reason why the path is white is because of the left-over snow, the reason why the background is white/greyish is because of the thick fog and the reason why the leafs are red is because they were If you got good circumstances you don't need to post-process much.
My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…
This is a picture of the night of the 5th march 2011... A night spent under the stars on the summit of the Brevent in the Chamonix valley in french Alps... We were front of the Mont Blanc, the highest summit of the Alps, an amazing scenery. The mountains remains enlighted by the lights of the town in the valley, giving a really particular athmosphere. The sky was amazingly clear, only the summit of the Mont Blanc was clouds covered.
A great remember
