interesting, full of feeling or just plain boring?

    No, I like it. I like the texture on the sign and that you've shown snow falling in the background. I like the border of the photo to. I do think it would better "aged" a little, to help the border tie into the photo though.
    I think you've made an interesting photo when it could have easily been boring.

    This photo really works for me. One thing that bothers me, but not much, is the little sign under the larger one.

    This is excellent! Made me shiver just looking at it, so the fact that it's had an effect like that is a good thing.

    It's snowing already where you are?

    this was about 3 weeks ago in Leeds/Bradford... it only lasted for about two days and then nothing. Can't wait 'till it snows properly... :) love snow and taking the car into empty car parks and spinning around :D

    Hahaha, I've never thought to do that when it snows, but then I'm usually stuck in work sending ambulances out into the horrible mess!

    I guess I'm the odd one out on this one. It does present a cold mood, but that's about it. It doesn't really do much for me...sort of boring really. Also I find the border really distracting...just me though

    "Borrow" yourself a couple of tea trays or the crates the backers use and shove them under the back wheels if your car is fwd for fun all year round. ;)


    And I've just noticed the two people in the photo, they look like they're holding hands. :thumbsup:

    I like it a lot. Reminds me of Taxi Driver, even though there's no snow in that movie.

    I do like the photo (good work!) but not the border. Then again, I don't like any borders, but especially one that takes so much attention. I'd like to see the borderless photo to truly judge it.
