Hello, dear friend, and very, very profession photographer!!!

You ask for feed back... first, these blow me away... With the first two, the only thing I would have done is slightly lift the camera higher, just to get a tad more sky, a tad less snow... The same thing with the third one... The Third one blows me away... this exceptional and stunning. Thanks for rewarding us so much with these lovely photos.

Another excellent series Mole. I think I prefer the non-HDR version more, though I feel the split rail fence adds nicely to the composition, and it's very dark in the non-HDR version. If you could lighten the fence a bit in the non-HDR version, that would make an excellent photo into an even more stellar image, IMHO. I also love the wind-blown snow -- I can almost feel the biting wind as I look at those shots.

Finally, I am really taken by the abstract reflection in the water. That one deserves to be printed large and hung on a wall!

Tundraguy - Thanks so much for your kind & specific comments. Glad you enjoyed these!

Pboerger - Thanks so much! Yes it was cold up on Roan Mt last Saturday, but yesterday our high was 64 degrees F. (Not a good day for blowing snow pictures!!!)

Ned - I really appreciate your detailed and insightful suggestions. Thank you!

MtnMan - Thank you for the suggestions - will try playing with PP on the dawn shot some more... Glad you liked the reflections - this is a great time of year to find interesting water patterns.

Beautiful shots! The HDR is very well done - you wouldn't know that it was HDR. For the most part, that's the type I like. Your blowing snow pictures are really wonderful also. Some day I'll manage to get to your side of the country...

Mole, all I can say is wow!
Its amazing what you can do when you're willing to get up early and brave the elements! Cold is one thing, wind is another. Combine them and you have the worst of the two! You're a brave soul.
Thank you for sharing these fantastic photos with us.

I really shouldn't look at winter photos when we've turned the heat down in the house. I was freezing before!

Nice images, mole. I can't decide which I like best.

GW - Glad you enjoyed the photos. Conditions really weren't so bad, and the views made me forget the cold!
