My second stop of the morning, in Sandy Hook, was at the Visitors Center and the lighting here was still quite good. I walked around to find the best spot and although I’m not crazy about the sledding tracks this is a pretty good perspective.
I messed around quite a bit with the white balance in this one and found that if I made the snow too white it ruined the rest of the shot. I think this is a good balance. Lots of dodging and burning in this one.
The power of shooting in Raw mode is evidenced here for without this format, the inability to adjust the white balance would have ruined the shot. If you have it in your camera….use it!
Shot Settings… Aperture Priority, f/11, 1/60 sec, Ev: -1, at 10mm, tripod.
