Nicely done... One of my top pics, wouldn't be surprised at all to see this ribbon.

Nice icey blues. I like the textures in the ice even though your probably getting a lot of advice on how to get ice without bubbles. I like it.

This should appeal to the DPC voters... top 3 IMO
11/20/2008 09:08:20 AM
great title, very clean and sharp 8

Lovely sharp details, lovely texture within the ice and nice reflections from the ice and the melt-water. Great bokeh in that background too. All good.

This image makes me think of someone who is cold and bitter.

Composition is good. I really like the blue tone used.

I wish the background was more uniform. The bright area in the top left of the photo is distracting. I also wish the photo was a tad darker.

This is still a great photo.

Nice concept
11/17/2008 05:04:30 PM
I love the blue! And the bokeh! And the sharpness! And the contrast! Well done. 8
11/17/2008 02:10:00 PM
Excellent, love the color....though some may have wanted red...love the reflection, the background works well, just a wonderful image.
11/17/2008 01:26:05 PM
Nice dof, nice colors. Would prefer if the subject wasn't right in the middle.
11/17/2008 11:37:37 AM
excellent execution of this shot - it has a feeling of an image by 'you know who"
11/17/2008 08:45:20 AM
Nice!! I like the DOF and bokeh.
11/17/2008 04:39:45 AM
very well done, nice bokeh. border rather distracts.7
11/17/2008 02:44:21 AM
Beautiful photo - 9.
11/17/2008 02:04:07 AM
Great idea! Love this and the overall cool look. One of my faves so far
11/17/2008 12:11:07 AM
This could use a run through Neat Image or similar. Very well executed otherwise. I like the centered square crop choice, but I don't like the beveled border. I've got a personal angst against beveling, but I'm not voting, so it won't hurt your score from me.

nice and strong...nice depth of field, good strong contrast 8
