Hey, a good try and it is not easy to take photo when snowing.
Some comments, IMHO
Photo 2 has a nice perspective and I think it welcome composed.
Photo 1 , :D dont know what you gonna show us.
Photo 3 could be better with a nicer trees with snow.

i dunno. wat cam u using?

white snow jin jia lat to take becos it reflects helluva light back to ur cam. suggest u get a polarizer? mebbe it will help cut the glare, but without under-exposing the snow scene. i get this feeling ur pics are under a bit. i tried it in switzerland last yr on matterhorn. had to under-compensated the cam by abt -1/3 stop, 1/250 (i think) with polarizer to get the snow scene. even then still a bit over and had to PS a bit.

How about spot meter on the snow, and then over expose by 1 or 2 stops??

Haven't tried it personally, but this is what i learnt from ziploc's class :embrass:
