Stuck in the Snow
 
Stuck in reject limbo on this one.. First was Underexposed and now this looks horrible.. Any thoughts on how to fix? My first attempt at shooting train in snow. I tried looking at RP for example but some looked worse then mine and many looked the same. SO im confused on what their looking for.

In the first rejection, the snow looks a little brown. In the second rejection, there's definitely an odd color to it. Third image looks the best. I usually focus more on brightness and contrast when processing snow images. Just get the snow to be white as possible without hurting the eyes and the blacks looking black.

Thanks Jim. Yeah I think the image was a little to warm at first. Im to use to shooting sunlit pics and forgot that things need more contrast when its a snowy/cloudy shot

Think of snow as a blank projection screen. It will reflect whatever tint is hitting it. Usually, that's whatever tint the sky is. Where I live it's very windy, and a lot of my snow is now black. The black is dirt that blew in from the bare fields.
