    Congrats on your TT finish! for me, there were pics more 'surreal' than yours, but yours also is, and, apart from the theme, itīs no doubt a very nice (and chilling :-) pic... a valuable keeper, well done!!

    superb shot... instantly scares... cold, sharp and hard ice mounted... the metallic color..

    An ice field and a bridge in the distance usually would not conjure up the feeling of surrealism in the viewer, but your low shooting angle has enhanced the scene to the point where the imagination takes over and any number of interesting scenarios are possible.
In my TT.

    I keep wondering if the bridge enhances or distracts. I keep thinking there are two subjects competing in one frame. I keep thinking the bridge doesn't really span the troubled part in the foreground. I would have been tempted to clone the bridge out and colour the sky red-orange or gun metal steel blue or gone monochrome to make the ice appear surreal and more colourful.

    Like teh shot, wonderful depth to it and the echo of the bridge shape with the ice shapes gives it a little extra.

    So weird looking! Good eye on this one and good thinking shooting from a low position. Nice job.
