There is a spruce tree named a Christmas tree in Biei, Hokkaido. Even in the harsh winter of Hokkaido, a tree stands on a snowy field. The sunlight illuminates the tree and creates a beautiful shadow.
The moment when the snowstorm changes to sunny is beautiful.
Take continuous bracket shots by hand and prepare 3 images with different exposures for HDR composition. A high-pass filter is used to obtain the texture of snow. Dodge & Burn is used for highlight shadows.
