    That is so awesome. I love the expression you captured on the artist's face.

    Fantastic shots, Miles. The first one, with the tiny bits of ice flying everywhere, is just great.

    Pretty cool how you shifted the focal point from the scultpture/tools to the artist's face. Nice high-contrast shot; the ice dust helps give some detail to what would have been a flat black jacket.

    The second one is my favorite of the two. Both are so well done, though. I do like seeing his face in focus, it has such character.

    i find this very interesting because when i first looked at it i assumed it was a factory worker or something and then i read the caption and found out that it was an ice sculptor, and it reminded me that art is also hard work! i've always admired ice sculptors because they dedicate so much time and effort into their vision, knowing that it will inevitably melt, sometimes far too quickly. it must be hard not to get too attached to a piece. peace.

    Love the first photo with the ice flying off the sculpture.

    The detail is incredible, mostly on the first shot. I thought it was a bad neg, and then realised it was ice flying everywhere!

    I love all the fine ice dust in the air.

    2 great shots . I like the ice dust flying around the top one and I like the focus on the hand.

    I feel chilly just looking at these - love the detail in the top one.

    There is something really neat about this set that I can't put my finger on. I really like the silvery feeling to a lot of your black and whites. I'm drawn to the texture of the fine pieces of ice and how they contrast with the darks on the guys jacket. Really nice clean work in this set.
