20th place
The intention was to shoot a typical winterscene in the Swiss alps and keep the emotion of the original scene. I chose the time before sunset and lightened the foreground up a bit with some reflectors. In pp I had to lower the brightness of the sky a lot and change the color of the foreground snow, which was reflecting heavy blues from above of course, to more neutral tones, like the eye sees it in original. This is not a HDR-image.
