Not so subtle play on the theme of puzzle, with cracked ice as the pieces. Exposure is good, composition is fine though the red iron ring pulls the eye given its placement in the frame, and really has nothing to offer in return. While technically competent, the photo itself is rather lifeless, offering nothing of interest beyond an allusion to the challenge theme. That's not said as an insult, but rather a call to step up the creativity to a level that matches the technical prowess.

I like these sort of natural puzzles. I love the rusty color against the harshness of the ice here.

Without the context of the challenge, I don't think I would have thought of the ice as puzzle pieces. That's really what they look like, though. The title got a chuckle from me, too. I love the tones in the wall and rusted rings.

Beautiful image, that line of vivid rusty and muddy orange contrasts nicely with the desaturated snow, ice and water. The straight perspective lines work well against the uneven shapes of the ice. The nearest metal ring makes a nice focal point. All good.

I guess they do make a puzzle! Beautiful shot. Love the selective desat. Very strong diagonal. Good eye.
