Frozen waters at Studley Deer Park

Added a bit more local contrast, dodged around the foreground goose and various other bits and pieces to enhance interest in relatively flat lighting.

Oddly endearing, despite or because of the cold. Very nice array.

This has a beautiful, cold warmth to it. Great classic pose, I'm surprised it didn't score higher.

I like how this looks like there is a frozen mist hanging over the scene.

Interesting blue cast to the ice and bird's breast. An interesting composition.

I personally would have cropped this a bit closer and maybe boosted the contrast a bit, but the concept is still really good, and it's a nice image. 7

Nice concept, I like the composition very much...

What I do not love is the slightly over-exposed image, and the serious blue tint the entire image has.
