    one think i suggest is posting your settings like
    (these numbers are just made up because i cant see your setting from my work computer)
    1/100th
    f8
    iso 200
    18/55 @ 55

    it allows us to get a better idea, of what you are doing with the camera.

    I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination but as for the photo i think its ok, a bit flat and not really sure what you were trying to capture. was the stream your main subject? if so you may have been able to try getting a bit closer to it and lower down, so the eye would be drwan down the stream, if you had a tripod you could have also tried slowing down your shutter speed to give the water a nice effect.

    welcome and post lots of photos (one per day! )

    Yes, the stream was the subject and no I don't have a tripod so unfortunately slower the shutter wasn't an option this time. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to try those next time.

    K1W1 is correct about the settings, except I did adjust the Exposure Bias +.5 in post as it originally looked a little dark to me.

    RE: exposure

    Jrb350z;
    Dark color of snow is common as camera exposure systems tend to try to make it come out as a grey, so some exposure adjustment is usually required to get it right, either in camera or in Post.

    Manually metering when in snow is best and remember there is usually a 2 stop compensation required in exposure to avoid highlights blowing out / avoiding parts of the image being under exposed (burnt out).

    That said, how one holds a camera well when its so freezing that it snows is something i'm still yet to figure out myself

    Everyone thanks for telling me about using exposure comp. in the snow. As soon as I read those tips I remembered reading about that in "Understanding Exposure". So much to remember. Oh well I guess practice, practice, practice is the best thing for me now.

    500mL, Turo, hokeyguy, and photowerkz,

    Thanks for the compliments, trying out a Nikon 60mm macro lenses and some umbrellas I bought. Years ago my wife worked for a florist while going to college, we still get all our flowers there. I went in one day and asked if they had some stuff they weren't going to use or stuff that was a few days old that would be cheap. They gave me a few things as long I showed them the results. I have a few more just haven't posted yet.

    Going to be off of work on my regular winter vacation starting next week, not going anywhere, both of my kids are in school. So I'm trying to plan a few days out shooting some landscapes and maybe a few days playing with the umbrellas and flashes.
