Melting ice on a lake.

This image has a great abstract feel to it. The blue is such a beautiful shade and the motion is captured well. The way you framed the ice and the water makes an attractive pattern to view.

Ah...your first ice piece here MM and such an interesting piece for the abstract contest. May have taken me a minute or two to figure out exactly what it was w/o your title.

Great angle here....lovely soft colors too. Exposure is spot on. Looks like the lake in front of your place is melting quickly. Best of luck w/ this one in the contest. I like it.

    thanks I have about 20 shots of the ice. A lot include birds, but they all include thin ice.

Interesting presentation, I'm seeing a snow covered partially frozen lake that has started to open allowing the blue water to slowly emerge, this one makes the view really focus on what is happening here. Well presented!

Wow! What an awesome photo! I love the composition and framing with the rule of thirds. I also love the colors and use of textures. The smoothness of the ice and the rough texture of the water. The object in the lower right also draws your attention and gives it a grounding feeling. Very well done!

Interesting abstract created from a natural image. The various horizontal lines a series of patterns in blue and white that take on an almost op art feel. The leaf in the lower portion of this image is out of place and breaks the pattern. I would consider cloning it out.

This is a very clever contest entry. It is simple and makes a great abstract in nature photograph. The foreground is full of detail. The high angle was a great choice putting the horizon line close to the top so you can see the melting ice. Good job and good luck in the contest.

Very abstrace scene indeed. When one has to work to see what the image actually is then it is a great natural abstract. Perfect entry for the contest. Best of the best in the contest ~ Steve
