Ice Fringe - Eisvorhang

Taken on a very cold winter's day last year. The sun was fighting against the fog, giving everything a soft, reddish tinge. The icicles were formed by the different levels of the river as it passed through.

Taking it now I would have done the DOF differently. Any other tips for the future or for different processing (tonal values, slight sharpening, slight crop, contrast)?

    Solch einen tollen Anblick werden wir wohl diesen Winter nicht zu Gesicht bekommen.
    Eine wahre Eissinfonie.

    Very nice. I love this types of Ice crystals. Beautiful.

    @Jim, thanks! I thought adjusting the DOF might make icicles in the foreground and background a little sharper without distracting, but may be right. I'll have to experiment when I have the chance.
    @Robyn, thank you for your appraisal, I really appreciate your time and ideas! . I mostly thank Mother Nature;-)
    @Daren, come over next time it's icy and cold - no HP or square sausage I'm afraid.

    Brilliant image.!!
    Great work to capture it.

    @Doro, Marguerite, danke!
    @Bryan, it was a first for me too! and spent ages at sub-zero temperatures to capture the impressions. I was standing at less than 90° angle to the shot - on a "beach" which is usually covered in summer.

    Himmlische Glockenklänge bei bezauberndem Licht.

    This is a stunning image. The diagonal presentation and it's slight but effective diminishing perspective adds to the presentation. Reflections are supportive, illusory and quite graphic. Very nice collaborative work between you and mother nature.

    This is quite beautiful. Your light capture is well done as is your composition. I'm not sure adjusting the DOF (I assume you would make it deeper) would improve the image since the main focal point is the snow and ice in the FG. A deeper DOF would only bring the BG more to the viewer's attention and distract from the FG.

    Never seen ice like this, its as if each one has been hand carved.
    Well seen and captured.
    Question:- Where were you standing to take this shot.
    It looks like you must have been in the water ?
  • DoroS 02/08/2007 22:10

    Das ist ein wunderschönes Eisbild mit den einzelnen Zapfen,sieht wirklich wie ein Vorhang aus.

    @MJ, then let's exchange your wonderful Atlantic location for my Munich one, at least virtually;-)
