    The Matrix

    Viewed with less specular reflection, the patterns of ice crystal growth still stand out boldly.

    Nice series of surface ice patterns, Ed. I think there are 2 important steps in making these types of pattern shots and you have handled them well. First, the focus plane should be parallel with everything in the composition, especially when using a large aperture; it must all be sharp. Also, it's important to get all the edges visually pleasing. Depending on the complexity of the patterns, this can mean spending an inordinate amount of time making minute adjustments to the composition.

    Thanks Vern. Interesting discussion. Actually, the focus plane here was necessarily far from parallel to the ice surface since I was on the bank shooting out over the thin ice surface and don't own a tilt-shift lens. The angle became even more oblique for the photos requiring speculate reflections, but depth of field seemed sufficient to allow that and I think your comment supports my thinking so. With my camera and large zoom lens, I more often find a problem getting as narrow depth of field as I
