It almost looks like a painting. I love the soft faded colours and the tiny figures scattered throughout the scene. The white sky does not bother me, in this situation I find that it adds to the atmosphere of the setting and the winter time, but maybe you could have had slightly less of it, so that there is not so much open space at the top. A nice scene though.
