Oh I liked this one - 7 from me too. The framing by this non-standard-looking window really adds interest to the shot. For some reason, my favorite part is the glow on the tiled windowsill.

Got a 7 from me. :) Really liked how you captured that "WOW" feeling of looking out the window and seeing something like that. I also like how the color reflects on the tiles below the window.

Colors in the sky are great. Mabye would have tried to crop a bit more to just outside the window. Just my opinion of course, but nice shot.

Great idea and nicely executed. May suffer a bit from miscalibrated monitors however and that unfortunate. :)

One monitor shows this incredibly noisey and the other monitor shows it incredibly dark. There is very little sky in the shot and its cut in half. But it is the only thing you can really see well in either pic. A difficult shot indeed. A neutral density filter might have helped but I think it would have caused problems with the window framing. On the dark version the light post grabs your eye. On the noisey version its not as dominating. I would have liked to see more of the snowy scene lit well or more of the sky and less ground outside the window.

I really like the composition of this image - the reflection of light on the window sill and the colors of the sky are stand outs

I think a slightly tighter crop on the left would be nice

Had this shot been taken from a lower angle, more sky would have been shown and less of the dark ground.

this is cool, needed more focus and some more definition on the window, but I like it
