Actually crystal rather than ice. I was not planning to enter this challenge, but was playing with the piece and like how it looked. I used a 500W halogen lamp to refract through the crystal and a handheld flashlight for the extra movement.
Don't expect it to do well, but as a proud member of the middling masses, I take what I can get.
Adjust color, saturation. NeatImage.

Well, wonderful things after all. My first six, and finishing #35 is an all time high. Got a favorite too. Wow. I must be learning something.

I like the clarity of the ice and the simplicity of the scene.

Nice shot - I think too cold for my personal taste - Maybe with a bit more of a vibrant blue background it would be more zappy?

I like the light sort of coming down from the top of the picture

Good luck with the challenge

The background color is perfect for this shot. It conveys the cool feeling and still allows you to see some color refracted from the ice. Well done!
