17 Dec First snow in the city for my Fuji X-T2

I woke up just before dawn to our first snow in the city and grabbed this shot with the Fuji X-T2 and Fuji 10-25mm zoom set to 10mm and f/4 with an ISO of 200. As I was freezing outside taking this photo I was beginning to think that Florida sounds pretty nice about now.

An hour later the snow was still coming down but the city looked like this as the morning brightened the scene.

Finally, to create the image below I combined the two photos as layers in Photoshop with the darker night scene placed in a layer above the white snow image. I then changed the night shot layer to “Color” mode and used opacity to dial down its intensity. After collapsing the two image I then added an overlay layer from my MCP Actions¬†“Sunrise Overlays” with its mode set to “Soft Light”.

The image below from my soon-to-be-released¬†MCP Actions “Sunrise Overlays” pack creates a white vignette when it is placed as a layer over another image and its mode is changed to “Hard Light”. The it can be tweaked by rotating it and placing a mask on it to paint out some areas to suit.
