Location: My car in Maryland

Went to warm up the car this morning and found wonderful frost all over the windows!

Auto curves
Crop
USM = 100/2/2
Color balance on midtones -32/-16/+15
Resize for challenge
USM = 60/1/0
Border at 2 px in black

I liked the pattern in this shot more than others but the open aperture setting combined with the curve of the windshield and the angle of my camera meant some parts would be slightly out of focus. I'm trying to convince myself that it gives it a pseudo depth of field...ha. Oh well, I need another five-point-something. :) Besides that, though this is "pretty," I think images of ice cubes and glaciers will place higher.

yes, this looks like a garden with many nice (ice-)flowers. Beautiful! The tones works good on this image

I can almost feel the sharpness of the ice on the leaves.

Wow I really wonder if this a macro or something else. I like the lengths, it really draws you in.

very pretty and intersting view of frost...lovely. I am jealous! I was wishing for a shot like this, but not a frosted window in sight! :) good luck!

Nice texture in the ice. A creative title, too. Ice isn't a hard subject to introduce outside color into, but it also moves away from simply being ice. However, I do wish there were more colors here.

Had the top left not had a light background this would have scored higher.
