Hello Christophe

Great choice of subject, and perfect, off-centre framing. But you've relied on your camera's light meter, which has let you down, as light meters will when faced with non-typical conditions. Meters are set to calculate exposure based on "normal" lighting, which is 18% grey. Snow scenes which are of course a lot brighter than average, are notorious for fooling your meter: it reads too much light, so stops down your lens, creating greys instead of whites. You need to over-ride the meter settings by anything up to 2 stops to achieve the brightness which the scene really had.
