Prices of gasoline are EUR per litre. Sunday newspaper is EUR 0.90 but nobody seems to pay for it in Vienna.

(Entry to "The World on Nov 18th" on OLY SLR forum on dpreview. The thread tood a less documentary turn than I had hoped)

....and turned into peoples pictures of their dog / cat / child / back garden etc etc I suppose (sorry Klaus, I kind of don't like DPR - the % split of useful information versus inane drivel + poor photos is about 1/99.

Ok, back to your photo - well it's not the most exciting of images in truth, but I reckon you've done a good job of what's there - the colours between the sign and Shell garage are great and very well observed.....and it looks like a true representation of snow, wet and kind of horrible looking

i like the way the red and yellow sections echo each other and they stand out well against the snow. Cropping a portion from the top, down to the shell sign, might improve the composition in my opinion .

Thank you Andy and Adrian for commenting. I am glad that you find some merit in this (cropping from the top is a valid point and yes nobody will suffer from increased blood pressure when viewing this). The goal was to show my neighborhood on this given date, adding some documentary element and do it in a way which is at least technically sound and with some compositional element. Pictures taken in that spirit with that ambition covering a day around the globe sounded interesting to me. To me it showed that dpreview is purely equipment centered while mft is mostly about using the equipment to the best of its potential.

lol - "increased blood pressure"

Thanks Klaus, made me laugh. I agree totally and I for one would like to see more docu shots, but they're not exactly popular it would seem!!
