I am making this into a Christmas card. I'll have to lighten it to print. Does anyone see any other issues? Thanks

I would probably lighten some of the shadows down the river from the trees above, not sure how it would look but trying to get one consistent white would look incredible, I think.

Nice image, but it needs to be brightened about 1/2 stop and a serious contrast adjustment. This image is all mid-tones (grey) with no white. Don't forget when you're metering a scene like this, don't just point your camera at the scene and use the reading you get. Your best bet (if you don't carry a grey card with you) will be to spot meter the palm of your hand and add one full stop. That way your meter, which is designed to interpret everything as middle grey will not be fooled by all the bright white.
