I hung out the attic window to photograph our first snowfall of winter at the CEF office – Kilchzimmer (Langenbruck, Switzerland).
One of those times I fought the urge to stretch the black/white values in the histogram and decided to keep a narrow range of values.  Using a telephoto lens compressed the depth and layers of falling snow to give a natural grain to the image.  The scene already appeared monochromatic so it wasn’t a big step to convert to B/W.  I added a slight coolness to the B/W image by adding a split tone.
