Well, I had been wanting a chance to practice shooting in the snow, and I definitely got my wish! We're digging out from a storm that dumped 2 feet on the D.C. area. I will hopefully get more shots tomorrow, now that the snow has stopped and I don't have to worry as much about protecting my camera from the moisture.
I took these shots more as practice and to record the event. They're not great technically, but it was a good opportunity to play with the manual mode and test ISOs. My son is very hyper, so it's hard to get a good, clear shot of him.
I'd love to your feedback, especially regarding the color of these pics. Any tips are most appreciated! Thanks!

Egad! The snow doesn't look this blue in Gimp or Photobucket.

Is this pic hopelessly overexposed?

These are my neighbors' girls. I just had a couple of seconds to fire off some shots before they went for a walk. It was challenging to edit this pic because of the bright pink jumpsuits and bright white snow. I toned down the red/magenta in the girls' faces.

Not a great composition, but I still want to give this pic to the parents. I asked the older girl to catch snowflakes on her tongue, but she was a little tentative!
