allright, i'm not really good with critiques, but oke.

this is simpely amazing. the black crack in the ice, and the dark clothed perosn in the background form a great contrast with the white ice. this is really awesome! i love the smaller parts of ice in the dark crack, giving it a bit of a magicall epearance. maybe its a portal? also the position of the person is great. its almost like he/she wants to walk into the crack.

the only point of bad critique i can add, is the darker ice in the front.

though the small point of critique, this picture has a GREAT impact. you can be proud of yourself. i absolutly love it, and you surely deserve the DD on this picture! good job!

Wonderful composition. There's some awesomely well done existential linking in here that I just adore. I dig the..."grittiness" of the snow in the foreground. Like that crack has led to something dark and dirty. One of the better pieces I've seen in a while. Very nice!

"Computer graphics" they're trying to ask if this was a natural crack in the ground or if it's been digitally added. (I think)

Oh dude, that's intense. I think I would have called it something like "The Crucial Moment," but "I Am Winter" works too. It's more thought-provoking, I think. :D
