Hello George!

I took note of your comment about photographing in snow. First of all, when you live in a snowy country, you know very well that shadows are blue as the sky or almost when the landscape is covered with sno. As soon as you leave the sunny areas, you fall into blue shadow. So, changing too much the white balance takes away the natural feel of the picture, it has nothing to do with the warmer shades of a sunsetting, for example. If you'd live in a snowy country, you would understand what I mean, my friend. When the sky is cloudy and that you are in shadows, it gets even more blue, with some grey in it. This is the way the eyes see it. Yet, it is possible to change the white balance and correct for the snow to get white but you will lose the natural effect. In full sun, it is the thing to do, but not in shadow. And even there, it's hard to get rid of the blue shadow because it is there! Yes, really! Alos, when photographers love nature and take time to take pictures, go out in the wild, brave the weather and then come back and share their pictures, it's a good thing to give an honest comment but another to repeat it every time that person posts. have a good day, George, I hope this helps your knowledge of photographing in snow!
bye bye,
