Default Colour addition?

A back yard picture that I took seemed fairly ordinary -

and then I added some text to it -

For some reason I thought it rather more pleasing. Is it the contrasting red colour, or just the fact that it's nearly Christmas?

Keep the original. It's a good one.

Nice idea but definately the wrong type. Helvetica or Arial is not very Christmassy.

Thanks for the comments! Bynx - your font looks especially ingenious - did you use Photoshop to add the snow to the text?

Actually its a photoshop plugin that puts the snow on any typeface. I thought it appropriate considering how much snow there is in the picture.
