Bloody Brilliant. The concept is a bit overused but the people walking sort of signify that this doesn't happen much and the black and white shows you're not afraid to play a little with the picture's mood.
Yeah, the trees as a frame isn't very original but then again... I don't do this for anyone else. It's a classic look, that why I love it. Black and white when used in a snow scene is the only way to go in my opinion.
No joke though... I'm from NY originally and I was horrified at how unprepared the City was (not so much the individual person) but i realized this is a first in like 10 years or something crazy. I'm glad you liked it!
