[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small brooklet along the roadside in Yosemite National Park caught my eye. The trek down into the gorge by the road had several feet of snow and the area was mostly shaded. Does anyone know how to get the "pink" caste out of the snow?

Hi Michael,
very nice place. And excellent idea to take a photo. Excellent white balance.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Mike,
Not sure if this is what you were asking about, but I just hit auto color in Picasa. Nice action shot of this little fast moving stream.

Hi Mike
Before you start be sure to check your screen is calibrated properly. Otherwise you may touch up a pic which is good in the first place (I also see no pink cast on your pic)
There are many ways.
- Auto level would also work (it tends to overdo it though)
- Which level each color can be touch up individually. Tough this method allows to get precisely what you want it is long and tricky to play independently with the 3 colours.
- Thew way I do:
1) duplicate layer
2) auto level (or auto color)
3) adjust transparency of level 2. It will minimize the effect you added with autolevel to the exact amount you like.
4) merge layers
