Default Struggling with overcast and snow

I'm having trouble figuring out how to do pictures with snow and poor light. My first effort had lighting (dark) nand crop reasons for rejection, but was accepted upon appeal. This is the one that several of you said in another thread that the lighting was actually done properly.

My second effort was also rejected:

I spent a lengthy amount of time trying to get brightness and contrast about right, messing with those controls plus shadows/highlights plus curves. I did several versions before submitting the one I did. So I'm just confused or uncertain of what I am doing. All tips gratefully accepted as I am struggling.

Of course, it may simply be the case that the light is too poor for RP acceptance. Tell me what you think.
