Winter Warmth – Glamour Glow Tip
I processed this with Photomatix 5 using 3 bracketed shot and chose the Vibrant preset for the Contrast Optimizer. After that I used Nik Color Efex Pro and added some glamour glow to the sunny areas and the shadow areas. I find the shadows often benefit from the glamour glow effect. It acts as a local noise reduction technique (not so much here) and also increases the contrast between the shadows and light areas.
