Ice Age

*Composition (content)*
Your composition and use of color and light are good. As one of the other comments mentions, a center of focus would be good. Something to draw the eye to. As it is now, there is just so much happening that it's somewhat chaotic. Your concept was very good. Definitely get a sense of blue.

Your DOF is good. Again the background seems very busy to the eye. I wonder if a different aperture so as to blur out the back a little would help maybe F4.

*Camera Work (Technical)*
Good use of the camera to get a close-up macro.

*Digital Processing (technical)*
Sharpening is ok (trace of over sharpening around foreground ice).
Balance between light and dark is good.
Compression is good (no jpeg artifacts)

*My opinion*
I liked this picture during voting. I am a fan for abstract work and you did a good job. Other than not having a center of focus this shot is very well done.

this has a very fluid like feel to it and it feels cold and crisp!

Too washed out at the top and too out of focus, especially on the bottom, for me. This is just how I see it. PTL

Very nice abstract. Have no idea what it is but the shapes and colors drew me in and I spent a couple of minutes staring at it, exactly what a good photo should do!

Nice abstraction. overall quality could have been a little better though, some areas seem to lose their sharpness...
