For me not too much wrong, maybe addition exposure to lighten the bottom part, (Snow Area) chop the blue sky above the clouds. see uploaded Mod.

never knew it was so nice round these parts Grin. I agree with Mike re the snow needs lightening. I also like the Aussie shaped "puddle".

ps I'm nr Atherstone!

For me, the bright sun area of the sky spoils this. Mike's mod goes a long way to improving that, but it does have to go. Things are generally a bit dark and heavy and I would try and lighten the foreground a touch. The frozen puddle then acts as subject when the sun has gone.

Mmm!! the bleached out sky doesn't really help here and the snow doesn't actually look like snow. Generally the dark predominance of the lower section overrides all, then the imbalance of the sun breaking through the clouds seems to just add to it. Somehow it just fails to gel as a whole.

Frank - I was looking for constructive criticism of my photographs, not a downright attack on every aspect of the image. Perhaps you should be as critical of your own work!!!
