Hi,
It was a nice sunny weekend and i decided to take a trip to a nearby bog. I had my camera with me but i'm now struggling with the PP. Usually i struggle with the PP for a while and then just leave my images as shot, since i cannot get the PP right. Naturally, this is something i would like to improve upon.

To me, the camera created JPG seems a bit underexposed and has a bit too much blue in the snow.

The RAW file is a hugely different, it is utterly dark and colorless, on the plus side it has preserved a lot of detail in the sky

I spent a while trying to make something of the image but the best i could come up with, was this:

EMBED PREVENTED

Edit: For some reason this looks a lot greener in the internet than when i open it on my PC. Some embedded color profile issue?

How would you have handled the situation? Would you rather have blown out the detail in the sky to avoid the underexposed snow and trees?

And most importantly, how would you process the RAW file? I am familiar with the mechanics of RAW conversion, i just cannot find the proper sliders for specific occasions.

Any tips and comments are also highly appreciated, thanks in advance!

How about embedding the image so we don't have to click through a link and request permission to view? You'll get much more feedback this way.

Or at the very least link them from somewhere public, I'm certainly not in the market to sign up for a google drive account, or any other account for that matter, to be able to see them. Dropbox is free.

Okay, i finally figured out how to get full size image links from google drive and added the jpg files as embedded resources. This however does not seem to be possible with the RAW file..

I guess this doesn't help, but I would have shot it on a tripod and bracketed exposures and shot a 'dark' exposure at f16 for the sun. Then blended them.

I think I like the link or DPP versions the best. I like the shot, but the sun blown out and the shape it produces spoils it a bit for me.

I think the shape of the sun is because it is being distorted by the cold atmosphere. A wider shot may have revealed a sun dog ( just guessing). I may try taking it home and see what PS can do, it does have some potential, not that I can bring it out but I do like to play .
