And at some point you have to tell me how you adjusted the overall coloration of the shot, as I had to mess with hue and so forth to get my real shot to look somewhat like it.

Thanks Paula,

:love:

What I did to your shot was done with a trial version, so it's very simple. The program I used is Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006. Under "Touchup" is an option called "Adjust Color". You select that and then use the dropper to pick an area that should be gray. Since there wasn't anything specifically gray, I chose a darker section of snow. Voila! After that, I just bumped up the saturation a tad and that was it.
You can do pretty much the same thing in Photoshop. In Elements, I use "remove color cast" to get rid of it.

Interesting!

Searching in Photoshop, I found "Remove a color cast with Auto Color"

By doing "Choose Image > Adjustments > Auto Color"

But what you describe is more what I see in Camera Raw as setting the White Balance.

I don't have Photoshop, just Elements 7 so I can't give any good info on how to use that one. But yes, the adjustment is similar to RAW except that by clicking on something that should be gray, it also will adjust the hue by specific color. White Balance just adjusts the temperature of the shot as a whole.

The square one looks better because everything is focused closer than the tunnel one. Also the detail of water is sharper than the tunnel one. The water looks really nice in the square version :)

Are they the same photograph just edited differently?

Yes - the same shot.

The square one is just a crop where parts from both sides have been cut off, the vertical content is the same.

And yes, I applied some additional hue changes to it to make the snow/ice less red (as I think I overdid it in the landscape version).
