|Trust me, I completely understand where you are coming from, but after critiquing the images you like (and after receiving a fair few of your own) you will start to notice certain things which you don't feel are right (this is where imho = in my humble opinion comes on handy); main subject too central, over sharpening, not enough focus, pov could have been lower, part of a reflection missing - I could go on. It's that simple really. You just learn through experience.
Enjoy the snow :o)
