Great finish, Rudy. Loving the feel of this. Almost a still from an old movie. Top 20 is pretty darn good, man. :~)

I've been there, just haven't shot it. Nicely conveyed message of the title, potrayal of the mood. COLD! Reminds me of a paerson walking down some railroad tracks, where it can be bitterly hot and dry, too.

Wow, this shot is inspiring to me! :-O

Terrific photo. I didn't vote on this, but it would have received a high score from me. The snow almost looks like an overlay. Very cinematic (and you didn't even need to add the "letterbox" border!).

Nice choice with the street lamps. Like the line the produce because it always leads me back to the subject. Love the lighting and how you captured the bitter cold.

Perfect processing. It's impossible to look at this and not have the other senses start receiving signals too; the sound and smell and the taste of it, and of course it's freakin' freezing as well.

I can feel the cold and the lonliness.

Beautiful lighting and processing.

Great shot...I like the mood in the pic.

I like this image for what I see as well as what I don't see. I don't care for the title, as it kind of requires me to go in a specific direction with my interpretation - something a little less controlling would allow my mind to fill in the blanks. Anyway, your tones and lighting are wonderful. 10

If I were still living in Washington state I would be suffering through another one of these winters right now. Florida is so much nicer this time of year.
