It's been years since I've seen Lake Erie this frozen over and the day I was out was the coldest yet.

I really like this shot. I like the way you have isolated the tree and the texture of the ice. Nicely done.

It feels cold, yet peaceful. It reflects the harsh winter but with the promise of sunshine in the future. A lovely and meaningful photo.

Splendid. Excellent balance between sky and tree with ice texture and lighting.

I love the color. It definitely looks cold, very lonely too.

The break in the clouds allowed light to bathe the fractured ice in a cool blue which also enhanced the barren tree. But it also produced a hot spot in the image which is distracting to the overall tone of the scene. Scroll down to about the top of the tree to cut out the hot spot and you decide.

Know what packrat means about the hot spot, but really in this case it adds to the image. Really like this

I'd be happy to hang that one on the wall. Perfect.
