The harsh hard edged flaring sun bothered me so I replaced it.

Holy cow, and they call US the Great White North! Those are some incredible winter scenes, but you can keep the snow - please!

I just stepped outside and took a pic of my street. It rained last night and the temperature right now, at a few minutes after 11:00 AM, is 7C or 44.6F.

Thank you all, for your compliments and suggestions! They are much appreciated as they improve my shot.

To respond to your suggestions...

Ned, #8 and #9 were shooting into the sun so maybe my post-processing has something to do with the not so “clean”-looking snow. For #8, I’m guessing the pockmarks left on the snow by chunks of ice falling off the tree branches might have something to do with it. (Some actually kept falling on me while taking pictures.) I brightened up the snow for both #8 and #9, as Walter also suggested for #9.

I also had my hand at the sun on both photos similar to what Bynx did. I think it’s very neat. Seeing it done however was very helpful as I never would have thought of doing that.

Hards80, I cropped the tree trunks on #8 which Walter also suggested.

simple, yes the first shot is already an HDR edit.

toshi43, it’s great weather you’re having right now. I look forward to days like that in the winter so I can take advantage and do outdoor chores.

I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, Shutterbug74, Walter C, Ordo, and Mark1616. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

What a wonderful series. I have no idea what it must be like to live in such beauty day in and day out. Gorgeous....

If you want some idea, strip down to your shorts and go sit in a meat locker. Thats about how it feels. Not as pretty, but just as cold.
VV your last shot has a much better sunspot. Good fix.

Thanks, jgredline! Yes, it's nice up here. I don't think we're technically part of the Catskill Mtns (I could be wrong though) but we're definitely in the "Catskill Region".

Thanks, Bynx! I was trying different ways while constantly looking at your edit. It's good to know the method I used worked so that's what I'll use from now on.
