Sledding with the pompom squad

What is it that is so fun about fuzzy pompoms on hats?  Almost every little girl on this snowy hill had on a hat with at least one pom on it.  Let you in on a secret… the photographer had one on her hat too.

When I took this photo it was, obviously, snowing but it was also very overcast and grey.  Upon uploading it into Lightroom I had two (at least) options for editing.  I could’ve left it grey to convey what the weather was like at the time or I could opt to lighten it up a bit.  I chose the later.  I did a bit of exposure lightening but mostly I upped the whites slider until I liked what I got.

Why not just leave it at adjusting the exposure? I found that when I increased the exposure I lost some of the separation between the girls and the trees behind them and I didn’t like that look.  That’s the great thing with non-destructive editing.  You can tweak an image to your hearts content without doing damage to the original.

Questions? Comments? Just want to say hello?

    I don’t know what it is about pom-poms, but if you notice on TV, the NFL wool caps for the players have them!!
