While walking the back trails of a local park, I was drawn by the ice patterns in a small puddle. It was the most interesting thing I saw on my solitary walk. The next morning, it was gone- never to be repeated in the same way.

I hope I never outgrow playing in puddles. This is a fine example of the art of ice. It’s so milky that it has a quality of plastic. I like the arrangement of debris, but maybe a touch of contrast would help liven things up even more.
Bill, the ice patterns look great, here. The bits of debris add well to the story. My personal feeling is that in most abstracts, you want fairly even lighting and contrast. That encourages the viewer to look around and around the image. In this case some burning-in of the highlights and separately the darker tones in the lower left corner would even out the viewing.
