Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Color correcting the mountains, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
Now that the mountains are separated from the background, it's time to apply…a curve to them to make them look as though they're in the middle of winter, covered with snow.…Now open the Curves dialog: Command+M or Ctrl+M. I'm going to have to do this…in a couple of passes.…Let me move the Curves dialog to one side so we can see what we are doing.…I want to make the mountains a lot whiter, but I don't want to blow out any of the…areas, or make them go to 100% white.…The white point needs to be pulled to the left as far as it can without losing detail.…
Then select the Lasso tool and let's add an eighteen-pixel feather to it.…Then I want to lasso around these darker parts of the mountain on the left side…of the composition and then apply another curve on that area.…Again, we'll stop when you start to lose detail.…This section of the mountain even further on the left side of the composition…still needs to be lightened some more, so apply another curve to that area.…And then these lower parts of the mountains look like they could have yet another…
