    It feels like my second home, beautiful image and a top favorite.

    This has so much more impact than the same shot after the weather clears. If you have not driven in these conditions you will never understand that this says 'Road' with a lot of relief :-) It's like the difference in tone between asking for water in a restaurant or out in the desert sun.

    Too much snow "noise" to make my TT.

    Very nice ... unfortunate that the white balance if so far off.

    Beautiful picture, but the topic, the Road is not much seen because of the snow.

    Digixeno - thanks for the poem - it's perfect for the photo, and just the mood I wanted to get across.

    this image reminds me of two things the photography of ansel adams
and a poem by Robert Frost
“These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

― Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

    Captures the feeling of winter very well, but the person, trees, snow, etc. tend to overwhelm the road.

    That is really cold - my only problem is that there is so much snow that it obscures, for the most part, the road.

    Stevebee - I considered leaving the snow white with a touch of colour from the parka - but it looked so cold and unwelcoming. I wanted to convey the softness instead, so I chose to go with sepia. bryanshoots - true - but you have your own weather extremes. Breadmaker - Sorry this doesn't shout road, but layers of snow tend to soften things a bit. Actually fc, I was out of the SUV for this one - it was quite the photo shoot all round. Thanks Cookiejar - that's what I was hoping to convey.

    but this is a powerful capture. We dont have winter in our place but I can feel the intense cold.

    Theme - 4
Composition - 3
Technical - 3 Falling snow well captured. Dull tones, low contrast
Originality - 3
Overall impression - 3 Sepia I would not have chosen -- it detracts from the feeling of purity that snow typically conveys.
