These trees are in my favorite wetlands and looked desolate in fall, so I figured they would look even more so with ice and snow. Lovely gradient blue sky this afternoon and nice angled light on the trees. But ... I wish I could straighten it just a smidge!!!

I was sure this was Roberts!

Would love to see it without the OOF foreground tree as the rugged skeleton in the ice is very dramatic.

This is really great! I love the concept of the rugged tree stump. And it looks awesome on the ice with those blue skies.

I think the foreground tree and twig on the left detract. the 3 main trees, ice, sky all stand out but there are those distraction. 5.

really like the colors and a very interesting central subject. the oof branch running down the far right is very distracting and doesn't add anything to the composition. perhaps a couple of steps left?
