The yellow tint does add the feel of vintage to your last two shots and the bareness of winter. But I have to warn that in The Great White North we always caution not to eat the yellow snow. :)

Nice point of view in this capture and I love how the branches of the trees occupy the entire frame. Great contrast between the branches, snow and sky. This image reminds me of the ravines that meander through town here.

Henrik Herskind from Copenhagen, Denmark

Yellow snow... Hmm...
But very nice and extremely sharp! And what a poet you are: "The trees striving to grow away from the cold frozen earth in winter..." I think it might be colder in 6-7 meters hight. But what the heck. Your words are nice.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Can I use absolutely magnificent again? The process is remarkable. Long ago I use to sketch in pen & ink, often trees with bare branches, this reminds me of that technique.
I could imagine this in a frame and never tire of it.
