I've got some snow shots that I'll share later. This one stood out to me, and was a lot of fun to post-process. I guess it's a BIF shot

Very stark--dramatically so. I like it a lot. It's a refreshing change from the standard bird shot one usually sees.

Spooky - a foreboding mood is captured perfectly.

The vignetting was great and I like the color rendition. With just a hint of snow, it stands out from the pedestrian snow-tograph.

Thanks, everyone!

I usually don't go crazy with the vignetting, but I thought it worked with this shot. Those birds did look pretty spooky out there-- I wish I had something that autofocuses faster and was a bit longer than the 16-50 I had on my camera, but that's my only weather sealed lens, though those limitations seemed to help me get this shot.
