I think the snow just needs brightening up a bit. The camera's meter may have been fooled by the bright scene and under exposed by one or two stops. Increasing the exposure slightly in PS produces a whiter looking snow.

A good use of the rails to show perspective.

Alan.

Well composed, the tracks providing a good lead in to the snowy scene and bridge. Well captured.

I remember taking the same shot from the same bridge when I was your age... the only difference was a Kodak 127 and a Steam TrainWink

Well done Tilney.

Firstly - great image! (Initially caught my eye as I was snapping railway lines in the snow a couple of weeks ago.)
My mod:
As mentioned elsewhere, the image seemed a little underexposed - so I increased exposure.
The bridge area was slightly in shade... as the eye is led to this point I increased brightness in this area too.
Also darkened the sky and the immediate foreground slightly as this helps highlight the tracks leading up to the bridge.
Finally cropped some sky - I think this helps the composition as the image conforms more closely to the 'thirds' rule/guide.
Hope you find this useful Smile
Regards -- Steve
