Thanks for having a look.

Nice, very abstract. So many tones and textures to draw in the eye!

Almost abstract, tormented nature… I like it!

A lot in this one: ice, water, snow, riffle, pool, sky, monochrome, colour. Almost the opposite of a subject. Works for me.

I always enjoy these heavens brought to earth images...a very nice example...such a rich location it must have been somewhat a struggle to find the simplicity...

A bit slow to reply as a storm and power outages put us off line for a day.

Anyway, thanks everyone for the comments.  As always simplifying was a problem for me on this one. 

Scott, I wouldn't really say without subject, but certainly without any single focal point.  As you have pointed out before I am a bit focal point impaired.  :)

No "focal point" needed. Nicely balanced, and my eye wanders between the two sides pleasurably.

Curious as to your aperture...sort of wonder if you had gone for more DoF, if you could have retained more sharpness in the reflected clouds and still kept the sharpness in the ice...don't get me wrong, I really like the image but anytime an image asks a question of me, I feel a need to ask it of the photographer - got to learn someow.

Chris - sorry for the slow reply.  A storm took out our power and phone line (internet).

This was shot a f16  and hyperfocal.  I think the softness of the reflected clouds is due to the moving water. Ice is like sand - very easy to oversharpen, so I held back a bit on the output sharpening.
