The first thing that caught my eye about this image was it had an eary, Matrix or even Gotham feel to it. This certainly is a shot that defines when a photographer has that "opportune" moment. I love the contrast and falloff into the background, as the snow gets thicker. I think having the cars in where they are and even the individual on the sidewalk contribute really well to conveying an almost static and inanimate feel to what is usually a very vibrant and busy city. Very well deserved DD that shows originality and and ability to recognise as I said earlier, that "opportune" moment.
