interesting how the two patterns overlap but don't clash with each other

This image shows shallow depth of field so it fits the challenge. However the background is distracting and adds nothing to the image. I know we can't always control the background but it needs to be taken into consideration as part of the image. The focus on the frost is excellent. 6 - good luck in the challenge!

It would be nice if the background here was so out of focus as to not be discernable at all... Then the "frosting" would really pop, I think. (Especially with a little backlighting, I'm thinking, on the crystals but not on the background, such that the background would become dark, or even fully black.) It also might be nice if the convergance of lines was more off-center.

Very pretty subject. The background is a bit busy, the various vertical and horizontal planes compete to much with the subject to really alow it to pop. A slightly diferent angle, elimnating the tree and that black and beige shape at the right of the frame would have helped a bit. Those two areas compete the most for my attention.

4-glorious foreground, but the background is distracting. Maybe the dof is just not shallow enough.

5 - Good potential. Criticism; perhaps a sharper angle/perspective may have helped this have more impact. The house/cabin/whatever in the distance/background detracts slightly, both because it is not 'out of focus' enough in my opinion, and also the color 'balance' of it (the colors don't clash, but just that the red, for example, being on the left, draws my 'eye' there more so, if that makes sense). Perhaps a sharper angle with the trees/darker areas mainly as 'backdrop', may have allowed this to pop more. Not much to be done in basic about the 'spots' on the glass etc. More detail/sharper on the 'feathering' of the crystals too, but difficult. Maybe also a slightly different 'composition'/framing/crop. Just think it has more potential.
