    Woah, too much contrast for my taste. I like the angle and the idea of this shot, maybe if you lowered the contrast but played around with what it would look like just in black in white?

    Now, I'm a huge fan of contrast, but I'm not a huge fan of all that white! There is just so much white, and not a lot of detail in the shot because of it. I like the idea, I just don't think it worked particularly well for this shot, sorry.

    I think you shot it overexposed so the whites are blown out. Hard to get snow just perfect and not over expose it. I love the angle of the shot and the composure though.

    No, I don't think so. I actually think the foreground is the only thing that makes this shot mildly interesting to look at. I think I was a bit harsh in my original post, because I'm looking at again, and I actually like it more than I did before. Haha. I would just try and take the contrast down a notch (but still keep it high-contrast, because it's what makes this scene more interesting), and maybe bring the exposure down a bit. So yeah, mess around with it a bit and post the results. :]
