Taken with a Fuji S7000 on a very cold December morning, after -14c frost, the river Seven was completely frozen over.

A perfectly good winter scene - looks cold and dismal, and is. I'm temped to say, brighten it up a bit, but then that defeats the purpose rather.

Hi Terence and welcome to EPZ and the Critique Gallery,

I see this is your first upload and boy what a beauty it is. Here in Australia we never witness -14 degrees and you have to go high into the mountains to get to 0 degrees as it rarely gets below 6 in the winter in Melbourne. So this image takes me back to my days in England but I can't remember the last time the Severn froze over.

Your shot is great and it has a lot of atmosphere in it and is very well composed even with the cathedral central in the image and with a good depth of field. Makes me happy not to be there I think however, I do think that just a hint more colour to get those red berries showing and contrast might just give it a bit of an edge. Also just to be very picky and I mean very picky, I would just get rid of the twigs that obscure the right hand small tower just to give a little seperation. Otherwise a great shot and I hope we get to see more of them.

I uploaded a quick mod to show you what I meant.

Hope this helps

Many thanks Dave for your wonderful comments of my photograph of Worcester Cathedral. I'm in my early seventy's now and I can't recall it being frozen over like this. I have taken your critique on board, and look forward may be to hear from in the future. Yrret (T.J. Middleton)
