The ice is breaking up on the local lakes and thought these were kind of neat. Is this worth more work on or should I head back to the wildlife/bird forums? Any criticism welcome

One day I was walking on the street and somebody handed me a camera. I looked at them and said, "This is not a Canon, what do I look like? A charity case?" So I took it, and THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

Agreed, I like the second also. i too think b&w would look great, with a bump in contrast

Worth more work? Do you mean "should I work on these pictures some more", or "should I shoot shoot more of this subject matter"?

If it's the latter, then I'd absolutely recommend working on it (provided that you have the interest, of course). If you are interested in getting those kinds of shots, then by all means do more of that work regardless of how these pictures turned out (and as others have said, they didn't turn out half bad). This is ESPECIALLY true given that ice thawing doesn't exactly seem like the kind of thing you can shoot year-round. Remember that you don't get better at stuff without doing stuff. If you have any interest in getting better at shooting seasonal things, then shoot when the opportunity is available.

Thanks for the responses! I have now played with these in b&w and they look better. I'll try to repost soon but work is All-consuming right now. I'm hoping we get one more
freeze so I can try this again.

Yeah, I'm trying both...55 degrees today though, may have to stick with more PP on the originals.
