The snow adds an unexpectedly beautiful touch. Also, congrats on a well-deserved DD.

This is so beautiful. It looks like a scene from a movie. It's really a wonderful shot and a very well deserved Daily Deviation. Congratulations! :)

The rails in the background are sort of distracting, but in honest opinion sort of add a balance in the picture. (That's just what I think.)

The snow looks so powdery! And flaky! And the darkness of the man, contrasting against the snow is nice, gives it depth.

The title suits this wonderful shot, because as the man in it contemplates the statue, I contemplate the art that this picture captured.

Wow. That's great, the strongest photo I've seen in a long time.

Was this posed or accidental? I would give everything to see a person stopping like that just to watch a piece of art.

This should be the ending scene of a movie or something.
