This is one of my personal favorite photos I've taken lately. :)
Thought I would share.

The 2nd one is very interesting compositionally, but that blue snow is a bit disconcerting. How did it come out like that??

Dunno... and honestly to me it doesn't matter as I still like it regardless.

I love both of these. The second is my personal favourite because it has a bit of a surreal quality to it. Love the reflection of the tree.

If you look at snow it is often shades of blue, not white and gray. I suspect that given the light conditions that was what came out. It could be altered in PP but not sure that it's necessary.

I like the second one blue snow and all. For me the color of the snow adds interest.

Thanks Bambi and Michaelaw. :)
I personally think the snow colour adds to the overall mood of the shot which was what I was primarily interested in here.

I like both but, like WickedD, find the snow colour too unrealistic.

It's true that blue casts can be natural in snow, and especially in thick ice, but this was caused because it was under-exposed in that section of the snow I think. A more natural blue cast is evident at the top of the snow bank where there is more light and therefore better exposure.

Still ... cool shots with the light and the mist!
