    drivingback, Toronto snow never looks like this! Only in Ottawa, and other cold climes where NaCl salt won't melt the ice do they resort to laying down sand to give the cars traction; as they plough off the snow the sand goes with it and as the snow melts, well, you see the result!

As for Michael, do you really mean an Ugly insult to all Greek mathematicians? Cos if you did, that is a Sin to Theta a Sec before you say anything more...

    It certainly does not look good. Thanks for the extra info! Being in a tropical country I wouldn't have known that winter has effects like this. On the photo I like the shot especially with the inclusion of the bird, otherwise it might look interesting. It's just the 4:3 aspect ratio that is a little unflattering, maybe a 3:2 or 16:9? But that is just a minor comment. In my faves. Good luck!

    Jade. Although I respect the rule of thirds I try to break away from it as often as I can (I have this unfortunate tendency with all rules). In this case I saw a beautiful triangle made by the stream of debris, running from corner to corner with the gull smack in the middle of the hypotenuse. Who am I to argue with Pythagoras. In this case a(sq) + b(sq) = Ugly as sin LOL Your comments are always appreciated.

raf. Dead on comment about the bird. Comments much appreciated.

Old Finn. Thanks for the comment. Gulls do a remarkable job of staying white in view of their chosen habitat :-)

When I first arrived in Canada every street was piled high with dirty snow and strewn with garbage. It was disgusting. If I'd had enough money I would have turned around and gone back. LOL No need to comment on this Jade - It's too easy a shot for you :-DDD

    Everything is ugly in this picture, except the gull. In my favorites.

    Hard with white birds not to blow some highlights. Gulls on rubbish heaps sure fits ugly in my book.

    Mmmm...snack time! O.k. the look is ugly but it took me a while to even see that this was a snow pile. The distracting green background and centre composition would have been things maybe better to avoid. Still it is ugly.
