Hi folks! Can you please give me feedback of this photo? I was considering to submit it for local conest in macro category and not sure about is it sutiable for this or not and does it cropping or not.
Any feedback good or bad would be greatly appreciated!

I like the colors a lot!

The only thing I'd change is maybe a little noise removal...

Thanks. Tom! I'll be sure to remove noise prior submission.
What about cropping do you like subject in dead center in this case or not really?

Nice shot, but judges sometimes get too caught up in the "rules", and a centered subject is normally considered a no-no. I'd crop about half of the space between the bottom edge and the ice. Do the same, or even a little more on the left. And good luck ~ Ron

Thanks for suggestions Surfnron! I've tried cropping as you suggested but it doesn't look right for me(maybe I didn't crop too little or too much?) so I've cropped it like this and submit it already as deadline for acceptance of works was very close.
I've attached resulting image, hopefully it would have a chance

BTW it's look kind a blurry here(probably because of resizing or high compression) but image I've submitted looks fine.

Good luck. You could argue as to whether or not the red "spots" on the right add or detract from the shot. What you did is perfectly acceptable ~ Ron

colour, sharpness and exposure all great.

You could probably get away with a more dynamic composition with this subject. I find this straight angle doesnt do it justice.
