    Snow and rain?  That poor rose.  The colour really draws the eye against the grey/white background, and it definitely tells a story.

    This is the kind of juxtaposition that makes for a compelling image. Rose rich coloured and snow not blown out -- well done.

    Suggestions:

    I'm itching to crop out the edge of the window frame(?) on the left and perhaps a wee bit off the bottom, as well -- to provide that true close-up of the bloom without distraction. Might have even more impact...?

    Lovely shot which fully embraces the title of First Snow.  Nice colour on the rose.

    A wonderful story of the passage of seasons.  Lovely detail; nice control of the whites of the snow.  We can see lots of detail.

    Suggestions:

    The background, while blurred, is still distracting.  Those horizontal dark bands do draw the eye, as does the window in the back.  I'm assuming you didn't have a choice of POV.  If you have any skill with editing software, it might pay the effort to lighten and soften those dark bands to leave the attention on the lovely story of the rose and snow.

    Good image, but does it fit the theme, where we have to show our skills to show stormy weather?
