This is nice David. If you look closely, there is a blue cast, most visible in the snow.

Though I cant see all your exif details, i would guess that your camera was set to Auto white balance. This can often be the cause of an excessive blue cast.

Sine you shot this in raw, open the raw file in your raw converter, and either select the auto mode from the drop down list which works well, or select daylight, which will remove excessive blue.



Happy 2015

Thanks so much for the hints Willie. (I don't know where the exif detalis went to-- I'm not very good with this computer stuff). I went back to lightroom and changed the white balance as you suggested, but the biggest effect I got was by throttling back on the "vibrancy" control. It seems that "vibrancy" equals "make it as blue as hell". Anyway, I also took the opportunity to crop the pic a little more, and I shall try to put up the revised version. Thanks again... one of the great things about this site is the generous support and encouragement from everyone.
Hope your 2015 hasn't started as bloody cold as ours has over here.

Very best wishes
