    Just got our first snow of the year. Tried to take a few night shots after it died down, but it was freezing. Can someone make some recommendations (and criticisms, of course) about the shot and how to improve shooting in snow? Thanks a lot.

    I like the first one alot, great angle. Second one is a little blah to me. Great clarity in both though!

    wow, I really like number one. I love the depth and the haze as the road gets further back really adds.

    Fix the WB,unless that is what you were aiming for. Also, try the exposure check, if you are shooting in day, so you don't end up gray.

    I'd fix the WB, as suggested, and possibly burn out the 2nd windshield- it's a bit overexposed it seems- probably because at that angle its reflecting the streetlight much more. I really like it though- I'll second the haze adding to the image. I grew up in the North east and live in SoCal now... this picture reminds me of what it was like after those big snow storms- thanks.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. That photo was taken around midnight. I tried to fix the white balance, but I wasn't sure how since I didn't shoot in RAW. Is this version better than the original? It's weird; I almost like the color in the original more, even though it's not an accurate representation of the scene. Also, how does one go about "burning out" the windshield in photoshop?

    Thanks. That firetruck showed up just as I was about to go into my apartment, so I tried to take a shot of it, but it was freezing and didn't really take enough time trying to get a good shot.
