Nice work, Sandy, esp the crow. Maybe a little shadows/highlights to bring out the crow's features?

Thanks Ian, I used a little shadows/highlights, guess I didn't push it enough. I had spot metered on the crow, but I think there's still to much snow and it was very bright out. Guess it just tricked the meter.

I stand corrected I thought I had spot set but it was on priority, guess it was just enough to pick up more background light.

Sure was, used it for both shots, and the new tripod. Taken through the window :D
