10/10 and agree with the others. This is breathtaking and (hope I don't offend you) I didn't realize it was an actual photo until I read your description. It seemed too perfect. I am overawed. =)

Excellent, love the water flow under the beaded ice. Was this a lengthy exposure?

Yes, I set the exposure length to... umm... I forget... but pretty slow. =)

once again - you have an eye for bringing our attention to something that we might not otherwise notice and showing us its beauty. very nice. I'm with Mari on this one - it looked like a computer image. Outstanding.

That is awesome! Both sides similar in hue and clarity, one side dark, the other light, one smooth and simple, the other patterned and bubbly... its so intriguing! The texture is beautiful! I'm awe struck.

uglytyza: This is of an ice formation over a creek. In the foreground is the ice, then in the background is the rushing water. To get the effect he got he had it on slow shutter and let in a lot of light. Just to let you know, he's my brother, so thats why I'm answering for him.

WHAT?! why is this so good! wow. wow. lol. composition, subject, quality, technique, all perfect.

only critiques: the lighting, which i don't think you could control, and contrast-- its a little too bright.

Well, I do like it. I like the nice soft blues of the image and the way the rushing water provides a smooth clean backdrop in contrast to the subject. Which, by the way, looks like a collection of teeth - molars to be precise. Nice work -
