Greetings from the Critique Club.

First impressions are "not another long exposure of water" - we see so many on DPC.

Technically this is a good example however. Exposure is good, with hardly any of the ice blown out. The composition could perhaps be improved with a little less at the top so we focus more on the foreground.

Artistically a nice DPC friendly shot - the score reflects that.

In summary a good shot, not too much to do differently, a good score and fit for the challenge.

Feel free to PM me if you have any queries.

This picture is an example of the many reasons I want to improve as a photographer.

The fluid feel of the water works great with the unmoving and sharp patches of ice. Nice.
