Ok, according to the forums, this isn't TRUE shallow DOF, but whatever. One thing is in focus, the other isn't. They are related to each other, so that's what is important

Had a lot of fun laying on a frozen river to get this picture. Have some more that I hope to process and upload after the challenge.

this is really well done. Much more original than other water and ice shots

7 - This is nice, nice capture. Criticism; difficult, dependent on environment, etc - but perhaps a sharper (ground level/up) angle/perspective, to really enhance those 'sculptures', defining them more, may have made this even better in my opinion. Like to see that fore 'sculpture' sharper too, but difficult. Up to 7 from 6, mainly for the 'unique factor'.

Very beautiful. Nice compositon, interesting contrast between solid and liquid forms.

Very nice. It maybe could be cropped about an inch on the right.
