Trying out something new

My first ever winter shots with a film SLR.

Any tips/impressions/comments would be very very appreciated.

I like it. Since there is no detail in the sky you could consider to crop the image a bit from the top.

I love it, but think the partial tree on the right could also be cropped out. (The evergreen behind the crest of the hill).

The edit looks better and it's a good overall shot. Now if you could do something with the lens flare in the tree... Have you tried this as a B&W?

I like the way it is. The lighting around the trees are very nice. The noise in the sky adds to the mood too.

Yeah, scratch that idea. The colour one works better and the B&W looses the frosty look as well as softness to the snow and light in comparison.
