Many thanks for all of your comments.
"Sunlit" gets its softness and colours from ground fog, visible in the background, and through which the setting sun was shining. Hoarfrost gets like this after foggy nights with light winds, temps around -10 - -25 C. This is near Regina, Saskatchewan.
"Moonlit" is pretty close to the unprocessed version, a 30 s exposure the day after a full moon. The snow is green, the clear sky is blue, and the clouds are made orange up by city lights 20 km away. A clear night would avoid the orange clouds. Yeah, it's a little weird.
