I love this! Can't believe it didn't score higher. Very creative and funny.

I didn't vote on this one, but it's a really interesting shot. Looks like you were keeping an eye out and snapped a keeper while you could get it. About my only critique is that the steeply angled roofline seems at odds with the rest of the picture. I would have likely given it a 6, or maybe a 7 for it's uniqueness.

the nitpickers on dpc will probably say this is a snow shot more than an ice one, but I love the look on gargoyle's face! 8

I like the theme, but the picture itself is sort of confusing. I mean the thing you are focusing on is straight up and down but your background is slanted, honestly, it is sort of giving me a headache right now.

Cool idea, it looks like you had to make the snow fall in this shot. Nice work.

LOL!!!!!!!! What a sense of humor! The gargoyle's expression really fits!

I love the movement. It turns a normally static ikmage into an exciting one. I also like the shadows.

Great title. For me, had there been a bit more contrast in the shadows, I would have scored it higher.

The slope in the background and the falling snow is distracting. Good subject here.
