I think the effect would have been improved by adding some patches of snow and a few icicles to the scene. Also the Waffen SS recruiting poster on the wall hardly seems appropriate for Stalingrad! Probably should have put a Russian poster there instead. Other than those two things I think the overall atmosphere of the piece is pretty good.

Awesome scene- the faces and the figure poses really add to the effect- such great expressions and dynamic poses that have been well positioned. Painting is just sublime too.
