Very impressive work! The first two work for me (especially the second), but the third doesn't have much of a focal point.

Nice! I have found ice a very difficult subject at times.

Beautiful photos. I love ice, and capturing all its nuances is not easy. You got a lot of color in those. I like the second one best because the form of the xls is so well depicted, and the colors are unusual.

Thank you. Reflections can be a problem. Once I used a flash shooting ice crystals, never again.

Wow, really great shots. How cold does it have to get to make ice crystals like that? It must be formed from the actual humidity in the air to make geometric crystal structures like that.

Crystal formation depends on temperature and humidity, but it's quite a science. A very short piece on wiki is here.
