[Photos] Snow in Black and White

Having taken quite a few snow-filled landscape shots while on snowboarding trips over the past few years, I’ve always struggled to make them seem in anyway interesting. In real life, the majestic vistas of snow capped alpine peaks are breathtaking, but as images, they seem flat and lifeless. However, recently I’ve hit upon a technique centring on black and white, with a post-processed red filter and some contrast-enhancing curves tweaks that really make those snow shots come to life. I’ve uploaded several experimental attempts to perfect the technique with various images to my Flickr account, so feel to take a look and let me know what you think in the comments.
