Snowy Scenes Courtesy of Jonas

Shot:
This is the view into the courtyard from my balcony. I wanted to capturea nice snowy scene something out of a movie or even puzzle I have seen when I was young. The right time to take the photo was right after it stopped snowing to have a clear view and luckily enough before any cleanup took place.

Technique:
Here I setup my camera on a tripod with remote shutter for extra stability. I set my camera for f/5.6 and a 5 shot bracket to capture two stops up and two stops down. I used HDR eFex Pro to handle the base blend and then did a few modifications after to get my final look.
