    Sorry, but it really doesn't do anything for me. It seems out of focus (at least on my monitor) and just kind of bland. Needs more contrast and something to catch the eye.

    I like it, but I think it needs more DOF.

    Agreed, I think more DOF would benefit the shot.

    Is it out of focus, or is the subject just fuzzy ? Is it ice?

    Kinda interesting in an abstracty sort of way, I guess.

    The formal composition is quite good. Upping the contrast so that the lightest shade is just barely less than pure white whilst the darkest is pure black would improve the impact.

    It's in focus, but its ice thats half melted so it gives it that soft look. ill bump the contrast and post it again to see what everyone thinks.

    You think if i cropped out the second crack at the top that would help?

    I think the crop you have now looks good, I wouldn't crop it more.

    What aperture did you shoot this at?

    I think it could benefit from a little more DOF, everything else is fine.
