    Shot this earlier today. I love the snow effect, but I am not sure if it is interesting as a photo. Let me know. Nikon D200. ISO 200. ƒ5.6 @ 1/60th. Focal length equals 18mm. Cloudy +2 WB.

    I like it. I think you have too much snow in the foreground (unless thats what you want to highlight; I think it's a bit boring). However, it looks like the mountains and clouds are the main object in this photo. Maybe zoom in a bit?

    Just my opinion. Nice job.

    Craig, the snow seems a little on the blue side. The D200 is great for seting your own WB. Try the pre set Wb settings and use the snow for the "white card". This usually takes care of the blue hue and your snow will come out whiter. Otherwise nice shot.

    I agree about the blue tint. Maybe try a higher aperture, too, to get greater sharpness throughout the image. Overall, I like this shot. Composition is good and I see a lot of potential with the indulations and plants in the snow.

    Thanks I will give that a shot! I am going to try a cmyk version. I think cyan is the problem.
