1. White Balance problem - too blue; easy to fix. When I zoom in, it also seems to be quite pixelated, but perhaps that's because you uploaded a small jpg here.

2. The sky seems oversaturated, and the shadows are too dark. You might have a focus problem too, since none of the people seem to be in sharp focus.

3. White Balance problem; sections of the clouds are clipped - blown out with no detail whatsoever. Shadows are underexposed.

4. White Balance; clipping

5. Zoomed in at 100% the focus looks soft.

6. White Balance; underexposed shadows.

You should upload full size images here when asking for feedback, as small jpgs exhibit their own issues, including pixelation which makes it more difficult to analyze the image for other flaws.

@Marc&Tryc You have some great specifics from @Jill_C and I can't add much more technical advice but, overall, the composition of your images is not well thought out. You have not given the viewer anything as the main point of importance of your photo... everything is sort of equal in terms of amounts of snow, sky, foreground, background. Landscape and "setting" or establishing images require a lot of time and effort to get right to begin with but post processing is also very important to understand and get right. You'll need to keep learning how the tools of camera RAW, Lightroom, and Photoshop work to get better results. Keep trying, take classes, read books, and always ask for feedback, too!

Dear Jain Lemos,

Thank you for your comment 🙂 All suggestions are very precious to me since I am still learning how to make good pictures and improve my skills. I would not be able to do that without the professional feedback. Thank you very much for your time devoted to evaluation of my pictures!
