Magic Mushrooms - Another view added
« on: December 12, 2012, 05:23:03 PM »

From a walk on the Avalon Barrens.  I always enjoy the early ice season - especially on a calm, sunny day.

I love square images however this feels like a crop of a larger image. What did the rest of the frame look like?

Fantastic result.
Beautiful shapes, colours, and tones.
The twigs around which the ice has formed lend great depth of detail to the image and also allow for a wonderful interplay between the concrete and the abstract in this image.

All in all - a winner!

Very nice effect. I like the softness of the shapes.

I seem to prefer the foreground where the ice-surface is not in sharp focus, but I don't think I would have thought of pushing all the content of the picture out-of-focus.

Well seen... and captured!  Having been around snow and cold almost my entire life I'd like to say I miss it... but I really don't.   ;D

Thanks for all of the comments - they are appreciated.

Rob - yes it is cropped but I shot it with cropping in mind because of the shapes I had to work with.

Mike - BC makes everyone soft.  :) I hear it is the rain.

Nice shapes and a pleasing composition. Still, I would love to see more sunlight reflecting through the ice. But it is a nice image as it is.

Seoonmie - Yes I agree.  It was a bit difficult getting access to the right angle to get enough but not too much light through.

Here is another that perhaps got a bit more of the light, at least in part.  I like the contrast between the light and dark sides.

That last one has a bit of magic. The first 2 are good, a bit clinical. #3 for me. Well done.

Yes, that's exactly what I was talking about! Your last version is the clear winner for me.
