Blanket of Winter Over Spring

Blanket of Winter Over Spring

This was a very low bush but I am not into flowers so no idea of the name.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A550 with a Tamron 28-200 zoom at 55mm and F5 for narrow depth of field. One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 3 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation. Each image was noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by Topaz Adjust and Photoshop to bring in more detail. I used 2 Topaz layers with masks, one was to reduce detail in the background and the other to increase detail in the flowers and snow in the foreground.
