Default Simple snow scenes

We had about 4" of snow overnight, about 24 F., and no wind. This meant soft, fluffy snow, with some settling in on the trees. After shoveling our driveway off, I shot a few scenes with my FZ35.

Simple shots, nothing special. However, my fingers were so cold by this time, I had a very hard time just depressing the shutter button. Also, my polarizing glasses got so dark from the sun and bright snow, I had a hard time seeing the screen. Some of these are a little more underexposed than I would have liked. I didn't realize it until I was inside, outer clothes off, and getting my fingers back into circulation. Also, by that time, breezes started and some snow was coming off the trees.

All were shot on P, autowb, autoiso. Seeing the exposure is not quite right, perhaps this would have been a time to use the "exposure bracketing" feature. I read about it in another thread, but have not tried it.

The sun was not out in total, but some peek-a-boo stuff. I felt I should have had better opportunities, but was so cold I chose not to march down through the neighborhood looking for those shots. In hindsight, ...

I really like what you took. Especially the first one. You could play around with exposure after the fact, see if you like them brightened...however, sometimes the 'mood' is made by less light. I do not know what it is about the last one, but, it gets to me. For a 'pretty picture' sure you could change the exposure...but, something just says something the way it is...

Beautiful shots Roger, very Christmassy. I especially like the last one with the sparkles on the snow.

Personally I prefer the original. The blue cast on the snow is now too strong.
