Thanks all for great comments and time to vote, i'm really thrilled with this win ... finally after 5 years :-)

interesting ... during hype about 1000th challenge i knew this will probably happen to me to have 14 comments during voting week , LOL ... i mean usually high rated photos have cca. 25-30 comments ... but not mine, hehe ... nevermind i'm happy and all that

... and with black and white photo ! which means even more for me

pp:
exported tiffs from lr from -3 to +3
tone mapped
imported in ps
some small cloning
black and white
sharpened
resized
sharpened
added border
saved for web

Wonderful photo. The clarity of the entire picture is just amazing. You have the castle in the background, as well as the one in the water. You also got the ice to be a important part of the picture, maybe because of the well named title, or because of the placement in the picture. Either way, very well done.

And I see you've used this castle a lot in challenge entries. ;-)

Awesome. The whites feel a little too gray (could use a boost on the highlights), but definitely ribbon worthy. 10
