I doubt people like the freezing cold and grey skies. I certainly don't. North German winters are notorious of for being just grey, slightly cold and windy for weeks on end. Maybe the cold is bearable but not the grey sky. You are not alone in this.
I think I have a similar lens...just learned they were branded Rokkor-X in North America. Any reason why you shot at F16 or was just a snapshot? Nevertheless...nice framing of the man and the in the bottom left and the sign top/middle right. I like it.
