I must first apologise that this is certainly not a true abstract but it was extracted from a larger image. Just a row of floats frozen in the ice on Lanark Loch last winter when the temperature was around -10C. Anyway, I was desperate to upload something for the Friday theme this week!

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6.

Hi John

Like the sunlight glistening on the ice in this.
I presume you took this from the centre of the ice!

Regards Derek

Nice capture John. Well composed, with good DOF and colors. The frame works well here, making it into more of an art piece.


Hi John,
very nice picture, i like how the eye follow the floats! and beautiful framing too.
The only thing i could say is that i would have tried to flip the photo horizontally, as most of us read from left to right the eyes are used to start looking from the left. I will do a ws to show you.

hi john

looks cold,

good image, perfectly cropped down. still got plenty of detail in the textures. frame too large perhaps.

regards cd

Hello john,
I really like this image of the floats leading one into the shot.
A very nice graphic and well composed and presented.
Good job!
TFS, Joni

Maybe not exactly what I call "abstract" but I like your work very much !


Hi John
Yes I have too agree, not a true abstract... :)
But this is very cold looking!

Thanks for joining the theme

Hi John,

Hello John,
love this to bits. Its sooo cool (forgive the pun).Excellent framing shows this top lit composition to perfection. More graphical perhaps than abstract but just my thing.

hi john, neat panoramic style shot, the colors and details are fine with nice eye direction, neat shot, good add to the theme,

I like the repetition and the detailed icicles.
The thin layer of ice is intriguing too. TFS. Karin

Hello John, I have just come across this shot,I think that it suits the theme perfectly.
I think that 'LuDivine' has a valid point about the composition; but I do like the shot anyway.
I like the way that the rope disappears under the ice.
Good light across the ice which shows up the interesting textures.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi John, long time no see my friend, I hope you are keeping well.

Really nicely captured image you have, with a perfect framing. A bit chilly just now isn't it??

TFS, Gary
