I had intended to take mostly black and white images to be converted to platinum prints later. As it turned out, I didn't like the way the images converted when I began processing them in the evening. Instead I found they had a very subtle blue tint that I was able to enhance slightly by switching to the wider LAB color space in Photoshop, and giving the colors a little boost. Otherwise, nothing else was done to the colors. They are straight from the camera.
I worked with the camera set to auto exposure plus one stop of exposure compensation for the brightness of the scene.
This was one of the most prolific winter scenes I have ever photographed -- and the easiest thanks to the compact Fuji X camera kit. A few samples are below.
