Looks like in camera metering was used. The camera's meter will want to make everything an even 18% gray, so scenes with lots of snow need some overcompensation to be properly exposed. That said, nice DOF.

Great concept, but you needed better lighting. The white snow is too dark.

bump the brightness up a bit to get the snow whiter

A bit dark. Good focus!

5 - Good DOF. Like the concept/potential. Criticism; seems a little 'dark' overall, especially at this size. Difficult to discern, but perhaps needs a nudge rotation up on the left, seems a little 'unlevel', but apologies if wrong.

I would have preferred it to be a lot lighter.

A little too dark, would prefer to see the whites a bit whiter and the reds a bit brighter.
