This was fun to get. Wet, cold, wrong shoes on...brrrr. I'm glad I was able to get the snow "frozen" as it descended. With the high ISO it blends in a bit (noisy background) - still kinda cool IMO. :)

As you mentioned, the grass certainly mimics the angles in the fence. That is the sort of detail that I really like and would have voted highly for (not enough time in the day ATM to do a lot of voting). The grain (I presume it was added post-capture) seems to have given the sky a nice warm feeling, although conversely, I feel that it is a little overpowering, especially as the detail in the ground seems to mask its presence slightly. It could just be my eyes (it probably is), but the grain almost seems to form a halo around the building, too.

I actually really like this image, it fells like a picture from a storybook. I love the feeling this image gives off and the colors are so nice and warm.

The grain really adds a lot to this photo - looks concurrently old and like snow. Wonderful job!

I feel the grain is overdone. I would like it better as a true b/w with less grain

nice shot, but the border is very distracting
