Woo hoo! You captured the snow! I missed it by two days. :-( Cool shot and very appropriate use of the fisheye. And very nice of the sky to cooperate for you too! Doesn't happen often there. Oh, and edit to add at least no one thought this was mine this time. :)

Looks like a war zone or something. Cool shot. I like the perspective you used. It looks like you framed up everything real nice, with a small aperture.

Interesting subject. I think the lack of lighting lets this down though. Some sun cast on some of the objects would help to give it more depth I think. Good effort.

Great effects with the snow over the cinderblocks, though I wish the sky was a touch bluer.
