“Igloo”


Somebody tried to make an igloo on Whonnock Lake, BC this January, but apparently ran out of ice blocks for the roof. Taken with a wide angle. Various enhancements in Lightroom then applied the plastifier filter in PS to the blocks to give them even more of a liquid look.

Jim Ainslie    You do find some very unusual photographic subject matter to play with from time to time.  I like the way that your clouds sweep in from the corners to take us right into the arch.  The same applies to the rows of ice bricks which take us to the arch and doorway as well.  Your filter almost seems to turn the ice to chunks of glass.

Bob Walling   Interesting perspective looking through the unfinished entrance arch, Nice tones in the sky. The plastifier filter certainly gives the ice blocks a liquid look. It seems to have made them translucent.I hope that you made other exposures of this interesting structure. There are lots of possibilities around the arch of the opening.

Virginia Stranaghan   Very interesting image, with the strong leading lines and the arch of ice making a window effect on the images of the people in the snow.  The clouds in the sky mimic the lines in the ice structure.  The tones are well handled.  I really like this image I keep wanting to look at it.

Biography
IMG-leslie-otterbein I welcome any constructive criticism, and will try to give the same.I now reside in Vancouver, having moved from the West Kootenays, Trail BC but I originally came from Alberta. I work as a pressman. On the side I restore old photos and do a little custom printing with my Epson 3800. My websites are here: https://www.behance.net/lotterbeinI’ve been taking photographs since the mid 70’s with a ten year hiatus in the ’80’s. I joined the local club, West Kootenay Camera Club, and have served in nearly all the elected positions in the club; I helped push the club into the digital age.Since 1996 I have used Macs as my digital darkroom with Photoshop as the main engine. I am a Pentax fan and use the K3 with wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and scan with a flatbed and dedicated film scanner occasionally.I am increasingly printing B&W images as well as colour. My interests are primarily nature, abstract, and macro, but any interesting opportunity will have me pressing the shutter.
