I love black and white, A ok color picture can sometimes look so much better in BW and I think thats what happened here. I do like the snow though and its a great idea.

Been there! Done that! (Except for the snow, I mean! By the way, can you buy snow on EBay? Or just a "snow job"! :})

One of the best concepts, great B&W tones although the ground in the bottom right hand corner looks a bit out of place as it has much higher contrast than anywhere else

I want your letterbox, lol! I love the background, and how you've framed it.

The black and white works very well here - I like the stark, bright contrasts.

Excellent use of contrasting values, focus, and line, rivets the viewer's attention of the package.

Really cool!

Really expresses the feeling of buying online! You want it badly, you buy it, you wait... and wait... and wait... and then... Finally!

Great job!

Definitely covers one of the aspects of buying on eBay. Nicely done and well suited to the challenge.

Great shot. To me it somehow feels 'old school' - and I can't put my finger on why. It's simple and a beautiful interpretation of the challenge and really works in monochrome. Perfect crop too imho. Well done.

This shot is a great interpretation of the challenge. Love the black and white. Well done.

Contrast is very high here, with the white snow being totally blown out. I'm not sure how I'd fix it though. Such a high contrast scene will be very tricky to get it right. I think the detail in the patchy grass is distracting. Yeah, I think you should rake up all the snow from miles around and spread it out evenly for this shot. :) You can leave some grass in the foreground if you get tired.

This really does what the challenge said to. It shows the act of getting it after having bought it. (the box'd be taped though) ;~D
