The snowy foreground works well here, as does the soft light.  It's a different perspective of Three Gossips and one I'm enjoying quite a bit.

Thanks Bret. I stopped by your gallery but your note let me know you were in "Hibernation".  :)

Lovely view and good capture of it. Have you thought about cropping some off the left to get the Gossips more off-centre to add more "movement"? Also, I f you have a bit of image to the right, that front bunch of grass wouldn't be stuck to the bottom right edge. Lastly, consider darkening the sky a bit to give better separation from the lit Gossips. If you switch to black-and-white mode for a moment, you might see what I mean. (BTW looking at a colour photo in B&W is a good way of seeing shapes and tonal relationships, even when you intend the photo to be in colour - rather like closing one eye when composing to get a better sense of how a monocular lens will "see" the scene.)

These are all relatively minor - as you have a strong image to begin with, a few tweaks is all it needs.

Those are all good ideas. I thought about cropping but was just too lazy to do it before I posted the photo. Thanks for your thoughts.  :)

Good image, I like the contrast between the warm and cool tones.
