Rejects, batch #1

Okay, gang, I’m nearing the end of my ice series.  I have a large number of images left that I’d still like to share with you, but which I’ll group together  in sets this week, in somewhat of a haphazard fashion to speed things along, starting tonight.  In some ways, these photographs, for one reason or another, didn’t make my final cut when I was sorting through things and trying to decide what to post. So, for that reason, they’ve been booted to my own personal “Salon des refusés.” But that doesn’t mean I deemed these images unworthy of contribution;  it just means they didn’t fit whatever my purpose was whenever I posted.

So here, for what it’s worth, is batch #1, of the “refusés”:

  2. Strangely, as abstract image, I like all of them.
    Quite striking !
    May be toward the photography, I have much more
    tolerable eyes, unlike toward the folding bags 🙂

  7. Wow…for rejects these are fabulous. I especially love the white bubbles in the first and fourth pictures. Sublime…and filling me with ice envy 🙂 We have had snow and frost, but no proper ice since December!!

    • Oh, good! I’m glad you like that one! I wasn’t so sure about posting it. 🙂

  10. I still find it so intriguing that the water was so clear to allow such magnificent images…and I love #6…it looks like the Big Bang…and so beautiful! Well done, Melanie. 🙂

    • Thank you, Scott. It’s lucky that the water in places is as clear as it is. I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

      February 19, 2013 at 4:03 am

      • You’re welcome…and I’m enjoying them very much!

    I think the individual images are even stronger when seen as a series. I like this “rejected batch” very much!

    February 18, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    • Thanks, Julie. I appreciate that feedback. Maybe I should have been showing them in series all along!

  12. These are absolutely brilliant and what a sequence! In fact seen sequentially they are just stunning. The whole series belongs in a book.

  13. Your “rejects” are our aspirations. Beautiful! 🙂

    February 19, 2013 at 2:05 am

    • Oh, you are so kind to say that! Your photographs are amazing! I’m glad you like these, thank you.

      February 19, 2013 at 4:05 am

  14. I like them, especially the first one.

  15. I see more jellyfish! Your rejects are divine. : )
