    Brrr, this makes me feel cold.
Though the background is very distracting this is a great idea and it wouldn't work that much without the snow.

    Thanks for the comments - I love the suggestion about the snowball...

The shot was taken from a second floor balcony with very limited options for excluding backgrounds that were even more distracting. I tried to eliminate the windows at the side, but lost any sense of depth.

The base of the statuette is a rather uninteresting flat marble slab, so I chose to hide it in the snow.

    Very interesting subject matter for the theme.
A naked steel girl running in the snow is certainly surreal enough for me.
I'm assuming her complete right foot is not shown in order to preclude the pedestal from the shot but I would have liked to have seen the complete foot.
I like the background, as I too have felt like fleeing naked from school, from time to time in my youth. (-:
In my Top Ten.

    Quite a strange shot. Fits the theme and I keep wondering why, how where?

A couple of points though
- I would have preferred all of the foot on the roof, perhaps then we would get the support and if so I retract that comment
- the right background is a little distracting, perhaps difficult to compose without it in which case I would have looked at PP options to minimise or delete the distraction

    I keep wishing that lower hand had a well formed snowball in it and you moved the camera just enough to frame that hand against the red brick...
