The featured photo is a part of the testing strategy I put in place when I considering switching from Sony to Fujifilm. Since I had my doubts about the switch, I kept shooting with both camera brands for six weeks. And, only when I was happy with my new Fujifilm setup I made the final decision and sold all of my Sony gear.

At the time I took the featured photo, I had only Fuji XT2 camera body and one lens, Fujinon 18-135. The duo became my ultimate travel setup, where I had both camera and lens are weather sealed.
I set the Exposure Compensation to +1 to compensate for the bright snow and shoot handheld the entire day. Learn more: How to Photograph and Edit Snowy Scenes
Editing & Processing
It was a single RAW processing workflow.
First, I used the Crop Overlay tool to improve the composition, making it a bit tighter.
Next, I used the Autumn preset from my Winter Colors Collection as the base for Lightroom Rapid Editing. Then I used TOOLKIT to open up the shadows in the foreground and boost the Contrast.
The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Crisp Morning (12, 22, 40)
