    Blizzard aftermath

    this is one of a number of pics that I took today after the blizzard of yesterday had blown itself out with a total of some 16+inches. As you can see the sky highlights are blown out. tried everything that I knew (not much) to fix a problem which showed up in all the pics shot in late afternoon shots taken today. Dull grey snow. Other pics taken earlier with no sun in the sky were correctable to acceptable appearance. This one I picked because it shows well the crest of the drift. The top of the drift is about 3' high (1 meter to you metrical folks ) would I have had better luck in PP if I had shot it RAW?

    Yes and no. RAW allows you to do quite a bit more than jpeg, but if something is completely washed or blown out, its nearly impossible to recover it, RAW or not.

    Looks like a black and white shot to me with nothing in between. Your camera will struggle.

    If you'd exposed to avoid blowing the sky then you'd still have detail there and the trees would still be all black, I think that would have been better.

    It was blown out in PP not original exp. Caused by trying to get the snow to look as white as possible. Sorry if I confused you. Usually any PP to correct for poor exp. of snow scenes is done quite easily by ACDSee. This must be beyond its ability to fix.

    If you have either Photoshop or Nikon Capture NX2 you can do selective editing which would solve your issue.

    You are VERY close.....It does have something to do with a cylinder head. It actually bolts onto the exhaust manifold.

    And yes, it is FP. Stands for Forced Performance. (That should tell you exactly what it is )
