    I'm posting them for you to see, I don't really care about them looking perfect to everyone. According to my color corrected monitor they are good.

    according to my color calibrated monitor... they're slightly underexposed. :hs: All the snow is grey, not white.

    but :cool: pics anyway.. especially #2

    nice pics. I agree on the darkness/underexposure.


    On a side note, what steps do you take to make sure you don't get snow on your camera? I'd love to go take some shots like that, but I fear for my camera's life...

    I always have problems with snow, aside from a polarizer, what can one do to get better all around shots in a snow setting without everything else being blown out?

    Those are underexposed

    Cameras try to expose everything as grey. It sees snow and tried to make it grey through underexposing it. You need to know this and shoot in manual or just add in some EC to fix it.

    looks like you were using center weighted metering. try spot metering instead for snow.

    I like the low contrast gray and soft look, accented by the touch
    of color in your skis and goggles. Well done and different looking from
    the usual blue sky, model looking shots.

    Excuse me for the blatent editing of your photo without permission... but just for the sake of arguement...

    [​IMG]

    Auto levels, contrast increase, and darkened to keep the figure dark instead of snowy...

    Nothing really, The d200 is weather sealed, it's tumbled a couple times in the snow, just make sure i don't get any snow in it when changing lenses and dry it out properly etc etc. I don't use it in exeptionally wet conditions.
