    This is an image I shot in January and hadn't processed. There were other compositions from that morning that I decided at the time I liked better. It's funny how your taste can change over time and I decided to finish this one off as part of yesterday's Friday's Focus when Doug requested some ice bubbles.

    This is a 6-image focus stack trying to get as much detail throughout the image as possible. Beyond the stacking I really didn't dop much to this one. I liked the morning light on the distant peaks and the ice really did have that blue/green tint. Any thoughts are welcome.

    Very cool Kyle, those Bubbles do look great. And I agree that I have noticed with my own work that sometimes it just takes some time before I like an image. Maybe it's because we have certain expectations when we shoot, and some of our photos may not immediately meet those expectations. But over time, the expectations disappear and we can simply like a photo for what it is instead of what we wanted it to be?

    Hopefully I can finally get up there this winter to shoot those ice bubbles too. It's been on my list for a few years now.

    Those are some really neat bubbles with a seriously tasty backdrop. I love the colors in the ice.

    This is really a great image, Kyle. It reminds me of my ice skating days. I remember those cracks and the way the ice would boom when it expanded so I would skate faster and faster because I was afraid I was gong to fall in.
