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.
