Wow, such a depressing photo. It is very interesting, but maybe you could have focused on the shadows of the twigs a little more. That would have made the picture very interesting to look at, but it wouldn't have taken the focus away from the snow.

A thought provoking composition...I'm wondering how many DNMC's you're getting on this. Where's the ice? Is it the snow - frozen rain, so to speak? :-) Good luck.

The light is lovely, the sentiment kinda sad and quiet. Very well seen.

Oh wow......now this shot is so simplistic, but somehow, the play of shadow and light, the loneliness of this dying branch, it's bent over, broken positioning, somehow just captures a mood that really says something!!! Almost makes me want to cry. You've evoked an emotion in me and THAT is worth more than all of the "brilliant studio shots" all combined! 9 from me!!!! Please don't let others tell you that this isn't a great shot! LOVE IT!!!! It's a picture that's worth a thousand words!!! (Hey, I vote differently than most in here who will vote high on the esthetically and technically pleasing studio shots!!! :))

This one is neat but not really a ice picture.

This has a very Japanese feel...in it's simplicity which I find very appealing. Great job in finding a very nice shot in an "ordinary" subject.

I love the minimalist approach. Would a touch more contrast ruin that somber feel? Hmmm - just wondering. 7
