POTW: Does that include ice fishing?

I got a half day off from work and with lake erie being frozen over I'd try and get some pictures of the frozen lake. Ran into a couple issues. First I turned up the exposure compensation to +1 to make the snow white. While it looked ok on the histogram when I went over them on the computer a lot of them were too bright. Had to manually tone down a lot of them. Another thing I completely forgot about was the highlight tone priority option my camera has. It's pretty much designed for situations just like this to bring out the detail in white areas. So if I could do it again I'd enable that highlight tone priority and not go overboard on the exposure compensation.

Rest of pictures can be found in photo gallery
