17 / 365: Tire Tracks in the Snow

We received 4 inches of snow today, so here are the tire tracks into the garage. I took one picture, then applied different Levels settings.

In PSE, I moved Black slider slightly from left to right. Even this picture shows more of the tracks' detail than what was really visible to my eye, but I think it represents a good balance.



How to make the fresh snow dirty. I moved the Black slider more to the right, close to where the histogram started to climb upwards.


I'm not sure which picture I prefer - the first one is more realistic but the second one is more dramatic.

A macro of this would be really neat. I like the 2nd one. TFS

Great shot! I hear you on that snow and this cold...holy cow! The worst part is it is going on through Friday. At least the snow stopped here!

Wonderful capture... If we ever get snow maybe I will try the same shot..

I really like the second one. The processing really made the details show more.

Great DOF on these. Hard to choose I like them both!

Great job with the theme! I think I like the 2nd better!

Neat shot, I like the 2nd better to give more detail

These are just both really neat. I never thought of pulling back the black to get the prints to come back up. Thanks for the tip! I love the second one.

I like the second one better. I also love your banner photo--great panorama!

I like them both, but perfer the first because I'm a snow "pureist."

I like the 2nd one better because it is a little more dramatic.
