Thought I'd share the best shots of my past Weekend in the alps.

All shots with:

Canon EOS 50D
Canon EF 70-200 f/4L IS USM
f/4.0
some pretty fast shutter speeds
ISO 100
PP: Contrast/Brightness adjustments, cropping.

I'm pretty pleased with some of the shots - what do you think?

Some more shots can be found on my website (or you can use the direct link to the ski & snowboard gallery)

Looks really decent, very good :wink: If you want some critic, I'd say the background is a bit too bright in some of those, used spot metering? Try evaluative some time, if would be nice to see the wonderful sky too behind. But awesome work, love them :D

The background like #5 looks nice, if you had that on #2, it would make itself to some ad pic definitely. :wink:

hm yea, that's always the dilemma when shooting in the snow. I didn't use spot metering, but about +1 1/2 EV, this way, the subject is exposed more or less correctly - but the snow will be REALLY white and the sky will be blown out obviously.

It's still a LOT better than on an overcast day, where the snow will be just plain white. the sun at least adds some shade and structure, which is great.

The subject is very sharp and well exposured, it is one helluva mess to get the sky in also, maybe photoshop.. :roll:

You would have to use HDR to get the sky exposed correctly, but that's impractical, if not impossible in this situation.

A graduated filter might have done the job for the sky, but you can't get the snow correctly...

But meh, I think the lighting is gorgeous. No need for a filter in any way :)
