A lovely shot, great composition. Do you think it could stand a little more contrast though?

Lovely image with lots of potential to make more images from it. If it were mine (I wish) I'd be doing lots of duotones, engraving effects etc.

You've captured the sense of a snowy winter's day there perfectly. Gather you may well get the chance for more snowy scenes this week. Oh, goodie! Sad

Very nicely composed scene, the mist adding to the cold winter effect from all that snow, Ed.

Much as people want more contrast or add effects I think this is a leave it alone image.
It depicts the winter scene so beautifully with those windblown trees leading us down that avenue.
