Dogwood Shadow (take 4)

I've been trying to get this picture of the shadow that the dogwood tree at the edge of the driveway makes on the snow to come out like it really looks, and so far it's still not exactly right.

The shadow is made by the sodium vapor street lights so there's a decidedly yellow cast to the light which I just haven't been able to get right.

Depending on the angle I look at the picture on my laptop monitor the color changes from pale yellow to almost orange ... stupid lcd monitor. This is one reason why good old low tech computer monitors were better.
