Grungy snowfall

This is a woodshed in Valtournenche, a nice ski resort in Val d’Aosta, Italy. This has been shot with my iPhone 4s. The app used to shot the image was HDR Pro, cropping and adjustments were done using Snapseed, further editing was done using ShockMyPic, Dynamic Light, Pic Grunger and PhotoToaster.

      The untreated original is not bad, and B+W is great for snow picture. I do some B+W photos from time to time, but color and processing are definitely the tools that make me feel that I own an image. I know, there are others way of thinking about photography, and respect them as much as I like unprocessed photography (if something like this exists – all photos in history have undergone processing, be it optical, chemical or digital).

    Love this. But doesn’t ShockMyPic completely reduce your image to a very small size, therefore making it i possible to print larger photos?

      Hi Kevyn,
      you’re right, ShockMyPic somewhat reduces the resolution of the image in order to apply its processing algorithm.
      At the same time the transformation is so heavy that I’m not sure this is really a problem: you’re trading a detailed photography with a painterly rendered image, so for me it’s a matter of deciding when the tradeoff is acceptable.

    Beautiful colours, especially the red. Good shot.

    THis is a fantastic pic. I’ve noticed something: the process you use treats red very well. Is this a personal aesthetic or is the brilliance of the reds in many of your pictures a result of the process you use. Either way, I love it.

      Thanks Aaron! I like red as a color, and therefore I am possibly bound to enhance it; on the other hand my chain of processing tends to saturate colors, possibly the reds benefit from this.
