    Hi Pat,

    If you'd like to post one of your photos here I'm happy to give some specific suggestions.

    Off of the top of my head for my own snowy pictures, white balance is a biggie - you don't want your snow to look too yellow (ewww!) or blue. Next, you'll probably need to increase the exposure a bit, but decrease the highlights so you don't lose detail in the snow itself.

    If you're looking for something dreamy I suggest playing with the Glow and Image Radiance filters,  I hope that helps!

    Thanks Angela. Yeah, I know what you mean about the blue and the yellow. Lessening the saturation in those seems to help. I have been shooting photos for a long time, but I am new to Aurora. I am looking to make the right adjustments without going overboard. Some of the Aurora landscape pre-sets work well with my non-winter landscapes, but none of the pre-sets seem to work well for snow. I do need to do more study into the software to see if I can get some settings that work well for snow images. I need to find some good tutorials.

    Hi Pat,

    I like to think of the presets as starting points. If the colors are too vivid in the preset, but you like the other aspects you can decrease overall saturation and/or vibrance, or check out the HSL panel which will allow you to control the hue, saturation, and luminance (brightness) of individual colors. HSL is one of my favorite filters. I hope that helps!

    I might actually make a preset pack around this theme, thanks for the idea, Pat!
