Two doesn't do much for me, but I think I could stare at the first one for hours.

#2 is actually a good shot, but I agree with Chris that the mesmerizing beauty of #1 concentrates all the attention.
The deceptively simple composition is its strength.
Those subtle shades of pink are simply gorgeous.

This image is definitely one that anyone would love to have on their wall as a large print.

Number one is a cracker. Two has a greenish cast to it. Lose that & it would be better.

#1 is great because it's delicately luminous and has the right weight for the image.  Spring in January!  That kind of uniqueness will make it one of your best sellers.

Two is way too heavy, no transparency in the sky, kind of ashen looking, the sky is a little too faked looking, and it's hopelessly asymmetrical.  Otherwise, it's OK. Smiley

Or maybe #2 is simply overwhelmed by the charm of #1.  It's a well know effect that an otherwise OK image can be rendered irrelevant by a great one displayed nearby.  The arrangement of multiple, nearby images can sometimes be counter productive.  But keep on trying, night landscape is an interesting genre and we're starting to see some good work.

I simply love the first shot Scott!  Where did you get it?  I noticed some great hoarfrost around here a week or so ago but was unable to go out and get any shots!  Now you've made me feel bad!

#2 almost looks like a composite. If not, then the sky is overdone for the scene. It just doesn't work. #1 is interesting.

Both are well executed but #1 is very special.

Well, not normally one to follow the crowd, but it's all been said!  #1 is great... 2 needs some work.

For me, #1 induces tranquility, and #2 is about mistery. Both very good.

I've nothing to add to that except an endorsement. #1 is stunning.

Many thanks for all of your comments.

"Sunlit" gets its softness and colours from ground fog, visible in the background, and through which the setting sun was shining. Hoarfrost gets like this after foggy nights with light winds, temps around -10 - -25 C. This is near Regina, Saskatchewan.

"Moonlit" is pretty close to the unprocessed version, a 30 s exposure the day after a full moon. The snow is green, the clear sky is blue, and the clouds are made orange up by city lights 20 km away. A clear night would avoid the orange clouds. Yeah, it's a little weird.

#1...The light, tones and that superb frost/snow covered tree is superb...only slight niggle from me is it seem a bit of a tight crop?

Not even a sniff so snow in Britain as yet...Roll on Feb then we should see the white stuff....possibly?

Yes, wider would be better. This morning as I drove past this tree on my way to work I was struck by my luck with the ground fog obscuring the distant clutter in the background. There are structures on the right and left, so a wider shot wasn't possible.

The trouble with lots of empty space on the prairies is that you can also see unwanted things for miles and miles.

Have you had no snow, Shaun? We've had about 3 inches here in Somerset in early December. Snow on the hills a couple of times, and obviously a lot more than that in Scotland's mountains.
