*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A very intriguing abstract that suggests hidden meaning

I have to agree with your commenter Neat, your image and title suggests being lost in a blizzard and finding the sanctuary of a shelter which would be a most welcome feeling to anyone in such distressing circumstances. So, although it is abstract and difficult to define exactly what we are looking at that is what gives it the mystery and meaning that makes it work.

I am normally very hot on blown highlights but in the context of your image that is what gives me the suggested meaning I am getting from it, so therefore, it is essential here. I like the toning, its working well too. I am quite a fan of deliberate OOF, it is very useful to give an alternative presentation to the normal pin sharp that we all seem to desire so much. It is the fringing of the fine lines that is so intriguing and works well with the OOFness (try finding that on google!).

I like that you have the courage of your convictions with your photography, you know your images are unlikely to be appreciated by enough people for them to score highly but you have your own distinctive vision and you are not afraid to share it with others, thank you, Sid.

This is a poem in itself... But just in case, please add words. It will grow. Thanks.

I gave you an 8 - not everyone can see what others SEE!

Just a bit too blurry for my taste even for an abstract / silhouette image.

...bumping to an 8. This is more than a photograph...it's a feeling.

Great sense of a blizzard. Disorienting and cold.
