I generally avoid colour tinting photographs.  It can often look like the photographer has recently discovered that ‘you can do this’ in Photoshop, rather than adding to the image.  The one exception to the rule is tinting snow blue, when the photo is black and white.  Normally you tint a black and white image with a slight sepia tone to make it look warmer, but with snow, you want the viewer to feel the cold.  A blue tint on snow looks like this…

I’ve only got one tinted portrait, which I thought I’d share with you.  The following shot is my other half’s sister, looking very chic last summer.

Any tinted shots my readers would like to share?
