Very nice silhoutte and reflection - I'm not sure how you would do it, but I wonder if it would be nice to just get a little bit of light on the tree - probably not too much. Just to bring out a little contrast between the tree and the snow.

Very nice shot

Beautiful colours. It tricks the eye and the senses. You see the warm sun first and then you notice the cold snow. Great composition.

mikears, i fully agree with you... i tried it, but my flash only worked once, and that was when i focused on the dark tree, making the sunset really bright and spoiling the picture. Not sure if it's possible to force the camera to take the damn flash...

Like this a lot Oliver... and well done with the 750UZ. I had one myself up until a few months ago. 'Mikears' has a good point about punching a little more light into strongly backlit shots like this. The 750UZ has a hotshoe. Get yourself another flashgun and either hotshoe mount it - or if possible - get a hotshoe PC connector and a Metz 45 (or similar) that is, one that you can adjust the settings on - and experiment with it.

You have a great portfolio and I think this idea may help you with your particular camera.
