Interesting and slightly surreal. It really does feel cold mind you!

Excellent use of motion - a great subject to use it on, and suited well for B&W. Aptly titled as well. (And you need to clean your sensor.)

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Interesting image, with a 'drawn with charcoal' look - gives the impression of driving snow.

Critical stuff: The centred composition doesn't really work with subject matter and moving camera effect - I think the dynamism that technique can evoke is lost a little in this composition. I think I'd have been tempted to offer slightly higher contrast but I can see that you must have deliberately avoid true blacks and whites which of course is your call yo make. You appear to have some sensor dust on the right of the image and another spot bottom right - you could have cloned these out.

Overall: I think you've achieved what you wanted to but overall I think the image lacks a bit of impact.

Photographically, it's okay, but the longer I look at your image, the more I like interpreting it as a hand drawn sketch/watercolor image.

Very nice blurred shot. It really gives the feeling of wind driven snow.

I like the graininess and the horizontal-diagonal movement. This has the feel of a pencil drawing. You'll have to put in your notes how you achieved this. Good luck in the voting.
