Erm... Stuck a macro, spend some time in the snow, left a few drops of condensation on the camera from my breathing... Blue tint is the way sunny white balance behaved under overcast skies, switching wb to shadow gave some approximation of sepia, but I decided to stick with the blue.

Interesting and eye catching...hard NOT to stare at it

8 - Very nice. Criticism; whilst I'd like to see more definitiion and clarity on the 'ends', I really like this perspective and the overall pattern/effect. Perhaps this horizontal framing works better 'wall sized', but for here, perhaps a little more height may have helped give it more impact, not sure;. A little 'dark' (again might just be the size and this medium/here), so perhaps a tweaking of contrast/etc, though likely very difficult to do, as would also be any variation in the crop/cut choice.

Hey there, intringuing, though you'lll probably get nailed for too centered of a composition. (Which it is, even for my liking, and I tend to have a very accepting eye for centered compositions - get nailed on it constantly myself)

Very beautiful abstract. Title is perfect. I love the color range in this - makes me feel like it's winter.
