I think the idea is great Darren and I do have a couple of suggestions for this theme:

- Try taking a closer view, maybe isolating a few of the icycles and using a wide aperture (for narrow area of focus) to emphasise the sharp edges of one icycle whilst blurring out the rest

- Try increasing the levels and contrast in the image to make the icycles stand out more and to emphasise their crystal-like structure


- Try shooting from an angle rather than head-on, this will be particularly effective the closer you get to the subjects

Thank you for posting the image and asking for feedback; I hope you don't think I am taking liberties by posting my suggestions.

No David, I dont think youre taking liberties at all. I asked for peoples opinions and I am keen to listen to what people have to say. I wont learn anything if I dont take note of what advice people give.

When I was taking the shots I felt that the scene had potential for a striking image. I just couldnt find a way to get a decent composition.

Thank you for your input.

Darren

I do like it and the almost abstract effect, i think David has given some great advise.
Kind regards Maria
