Well spotted Derek - this makes a good natural abstract... a bit like an ice sculpture. Smile However the photo suffers a bit from overexposure, and at the same time looks a little flat. In the mod I've uploaded I've cropped a bit from the left so that the subject is not quite so central, and then adjusted curves and used the shadows/highlights tool to give more contrast and to pull back some of the detail; plus a little sharpening. I hope that helps.

Thanks for the tips and cropped mod, it certainly adds more contours, definition and perspective to the original posting.
I had not cropped or modified it in any as I am still trying to get to grips with the camera let alone Photoshop!
Much appreciated feedback.
Ta, Derek

CB has said alot so I'll just add another bit about "before the event" rather than after - the top of the shape is nearly touching the edge of the frame, and gives a feeling of constriction - just a tiny adjustment at the time of shooting would have allowed a wee bit of space above the main subject
