You have captured so much atmosphere here.

Your choice of black and white suits this perfectly. Weather like this is an ideal time to consider working in black & white. Much of the colour is taken away anyway, and removing the rest by working in monochrome allows you to concentrate more on texture and tones, reinforcing the feel of the mood and the elements.

The misty background sets the scene and gives the brrrrr factor, and the walking figure's stance itself suggests a blustery winter's day. It looks as if it's snowing, too.

This is a "real weather" image, and the type of weather a lot of people would avoid and stay at home instead of getting out with their camera. You have worked well with the conditions.

The structures in the foreground are nicely defined against the misty background, just as they should be, contrasting nicely and creating dimension.
Objects and features closer to your lens will tend to show heavier tones than elements that are further away, and you have worked nicely with them here.

I have done a modification where I darkened the image in order to bring out a bit of detail in the background because it's an interesting place.
I also made the blacks a bit blacker, helping the walking figure and foreground structures to stand out more.

Nice. Loaded a mod with the opposite approach, and cropped from the right.

Pamela has said it all. If this was in the main gallery, I'd be considering an award...

Both darker and lighter versions work, though I like the gentle uncertainty of you original. Mist gives this look.

Really good image.

Like this. Wondered about a bit more density, but I think the effect is strong here.

Well done.

A very goodimage, and it'd be so much less without that figure, that's well positioned in the frame.
I initially thought that this was too light, but looking at the lighter and darker mods it's the original one that appeals to me the most.
