World of Ice by DanielZrno World of Ice by DanielZrno
Since this winter was so cold (-20 at times here), Plitvice Lakes got partially frozen. This kind of freezing doesn't happen too often so I rushed over to take some photos of the ice sculptures the lakes and waterfalls create.

Nature indeed is a master of beauty :)

Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

The photo here is truly magnificent. The color and formation of the ice, the sharp points, and the clarity of the photo.

It has almost an angelic appearance to it, soft, fragile, yet threateningly sharp at the same time. It looks almost like a whole other world completely, say an ice age.

I really don't know of anything bad I could say about this piece. The detail has a superior 'icy' clarity to it. You truly were in the right place at the right time :)

Though I'm giving originality 3.5 stars due to the fact that icicles are very commonly photographed. Though, that doesn't mean we should stop photographing them :)
What do you think?

Don't do the mistake many make and wait for an SLR (and then spend a ton of money on it).
Just start small and see how it goes ;)

Thanks for the info...I really was going for an SLR...:s

I mean, SLR is ok if you don't have to wait too long for it and spend huge money (only to use it as a compact in auto mode). SLR is great if you're sure you will use its features. If going with an SLR, start with an entry level and slowly upgrade it (lenses are more important than camera!)

Well I'll let you know as soon as I get one..;)
They're quite expensive in here though...:(
What do you say about mobile cameras??? I mean if it gives nice result it can be used for many purposes as well..O_O

Heh, there's a huge difference between SLR and mobile, primarily in the use and approach to photography.
Mobile you will always have with you (which is important) and it can give you great results in some situations (mostly if the light is good, and you don't want to go too close or too far), while SLR is heavier, more expensive (keep in mind that lenses will cost you more than the camera, but that's something you can upgrade slowly over time, and they don't lose value with time, so you basically buy them "for life"), but also much more flexible and will give you better results in every area and be able to do things a mobile can never do: e.g. tripodless low light such as concerts and parties, macro, huge tele capabilites, very shallow DoF, various flash crazyness.

It all comes down to the question - how do you want to use your camera? Once you know that, you can think of which is best for intended use.
