Certainly looks like a lot more snow to come and sit on that tree, the snow looks a bit bluey Grey did you have any positive compensation dialed in on this one?

I like the composition but the image has a distinct blue cast to it. Take the blue out and the scene will look much more natural.

Yes,a bit blue,but think it adds to the ''coldness'' of the image.

There is no other adjustment but the increase on contrast. The blue tone is the natural effect of the light in this area

Quote: The blue tone is the natural effect of the light in this area

Snow will have a blue cast to it wherever you live, not just in your area! It is the reflection from a blue sky, the human eye corrects it but a camera canít. If you particularly want a blue cast to a snow image there is nothing more to say, and mikbee thinks it adds to the "coldness" of the image. However if you want a more natural looking snow scene you need to make some adjustments to your camera. Try over exposing by (possibly) one stop . . . . thatís what richsr meant in the first comment. If you can, try a different W/B setting. Do you use Photoshop? If you do, the blue cast can be taken out by selecting the snow area then reducing the blue content.
See this image
link the snow is how it should look, white.
No offence meant, just trying to help.

Ahh, the eternal snow controversy......I have seen snow in every color of the rainbow, depending on the sky, but it is rarely pure white, at least in my latitude.
I do occasionally alter the photo to make it appear more white.
I have noticed that people who live in the south seem to want the snow whiter than those of us who live in the north.
I think the image would look good both ways, because it its an excellent composition.
Right now, I am looking out my window, and the snow on the lake is pink, reflection of the sunrise.
