there is a limitation to the dynamic range (of the 300D) possible between white snow and a coal black horse. I used greyscale channels to convert image to b&w, stuggling to retain detail in the snow (and keep it white, rather than grey). I shot the picture in RAW and I have just bought the DRI Plugin from Fred Miranda (http://www.fredmiranda.com/shopping/DRI) so i'll see what is possible. I could crop the image, but at the time wanted to show the interaction of the horses. I have some isolated shots of the black horse - but he really was just black against white show - so the DRI is too great to get either right imho. any tips?
thanks for leaving comments - regards
