Hi from Critique Club

I've altready commented on this but suffice to say that the scene is beautifully recorded and could only be improved if the csene itself were 'cleaner' and less busy.

Well done.

Nice observation. Well chosen angle and it's a pleasant scene. I particularly like the icicle that has fallen, and the meshed window. It's not a perfect shot but has plenty of charm and there is definitely an 'Adams vibe' in this, thanks mainly to the DOF and detail in the foreground.

I like this a lot, It's just that the shadow on the lower right is a little overpowering.

I love this shot- just wish there wasn't such a big piece of black on the left. The icicles are fabulous
