[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture taken during the period of heavy hoar frost. This is actually frozen grass. I took this handheld as I was in a bit of a precarious position on the side of an icy hill. The light here wasn't good but I tried to angle myself to catch the rising sun coming through the fog.

Hi Karan,
You have risen Ice & Nature photography to the State of Art. Really this abstract geometry attracts my attention.
A beautiful sculpture of grass and ice!

Aesthetic composition Karan with great illumination and achieved bottom.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, background, lighting, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to quarrel.

Another of your typical presentations, with the touch that characterizes your portfolio.
Happy 2007!

Abstract and beautiful - winterwonderland.
Hi Karan, I love those buildings, but they are soooooo cold. Thanks and bye

Hello Karan

I like the effect of the frost on the grass.Like a stained glass window.Good POV and DOF,the details are sharp and the BG is wonderful.I love your artistic experimentations.TFS


Hi Karan,
Very interesting object that you captured. It looks like somebody's initial [?]
Great sharpness and very neat BG.
Light was very well managed.
Superb shot.

Hi karan,
You've created a piece of art again. The shapes and patterns are just amazingly beautiful. Love the composition and color contrast. Looks to me the light was just perfect, leaving you with a perfectly exposed image.

very unique. Nicely photographed. No nits.

Hi Karan.
Very artistic subject is selected by you for shooting. I especially like how well you have selected frozen grass from BG. BG is really amazing too: extremely blurred with soft pleasant to eye colour tones. Perfect small piece of art.

Hi Karen,

i'm jealous of all that ice you seem to have had over your side the south! Not a hint here in Bournemouth...
Anyways, great idea, it's suprising that the grass supports that much weight without collapsing. Nice subtle b/g really enhances the shapes.



Thanks for sharing..

Hello Karan,
Composition wise I really like the abstraction!
But most impressive is the artwork of nature, amazing!
Well seen and nicely captured!
