Day for Night - With Snow!


Recommended Posts

In response to a U3A photography group "challenge" I recently converted the attached picture into a night scene, using the technique discussed here.  Someone suggested that the effect was quite wintery, and maybe some snow should be added!  The intention is to end up with something towards the Christmas card end of realism, but I need a plan - how best to approach this?

Just start with removing flowers, trees and hedges! :)

I was concerned about the flowers, but I think I'll replace them with some holly - the rest are obviously evergreens, otherwise the leaves would have dropped months ago  ;)

Another approach would be to take a real snow image and overlay it onto your image, mask & blend it then paint in where the snow should be visible.

You will also need to take into account the roofs and other "horizontal" surfaces where the snow may be lying.

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now was our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Jolly good effort there, sir.
