The Road to Exton by BadgerJames The Road to Exton by BadgerJames
So I was meant to be driving to pick someone up... But I couldn't drive down this road and not take a photograph. Though cars didn't seem to appreciate me standing in the middle of the road.

Ido that same thing. It's stop the car and get the picture, or crash trying to get the picture. I like this picture, especially the contrast between the smooth black road and the ragged white sky, with the trees intricate and almost feathery, and shading from dark to light.

Thanks again. I played around with the photo in RAW to try and get the contrast as nice as possible without it looking over worked. Again I am really pleased with this one.

You should be - it came out well. I haven't learned to modify my pictures at all - they are all just as they are captured on the camera.

Do you have a DSLR? Change the photo settings from Jpeg to RAW. RAW files are amazing. When you take a Jpeg the photo is compressed so it is more space efficient but you loose a lot of information. RAW is uncompressed and with all that extra info you can play around with the files a lot more in Photoshop or which ever editor you use. Most of the editing in these photos was done in photoshops RAW editor. I only tweaked the Curves in photoshop itself.

Thank you for the info! I do indeed have a DSLR, which I got last month for my birthday (she said, reaching for the instruction manual that has really tiny pages and printing).

Ah cool. What did you get?
I'm not one for instruction manuals but I did go though my one. Another good place to learn things about how to take photos is YouTube. There are a lot of people that put up videos of how they work and it is a good place to pick up tips. I used you tube to check if there was anything to remember when I was out taking the photos in the snow.

I got a Nikon 1. Our Internet connection out here is tenuous and slow, so we don't use YouTube much. It's kinda stone-age out here, tech-wise: I'm on an island halfway up the Aleutian Chain in Alaska. BUT - I will check out YouTube next time I am in the Lower 48 (what we Outside call the contiguous states of the US).

Our internet can be pretty bad at times and I live in the middle of England.
There must be some pretty good spots to take some photos out there?
