I find "Trajectory" is so so so odd and unnerving to me yet at the
same time is full of such wonder. That it almost provokes the
thought of it being an artistic masterpiece. To me, because of the
structure of the composition I am drawn into the central white
that with the shading in its central a triangle is produces like
maybe found in the male lower anatomy. and the further shading
helps to create the base of a penis with then the human legs on
either side. Easy enough to imagine since I have seen many an
ancient statue in my day.
Now you throw in the folds that cut across the lower part of the
image from the left side that die off before the left side. And
the wonderful drift of tones of the reds against the whites. And
what appears to be added coat jacket lint on top of that. It then
all causes quite a bit of wonder and mystery like a true art is
supposed to do. While I suspect many viewers will not think much
of this image. I seem to see more and it obviously caused a
reaction in me. It is a horrible looking image but it is really
really good.

die off before the right side

I like the fragile feel that you have managed to capture in both of the pictures but especially in the image in the comment section with the downward thrust of the delicate frost. Both of the images are something I've tried to capture over the years (mostly unsuccessfully but occasionally I have). Such delicate forms created by the harsh cold of winter... Mother Nature is a wonderful artist just calling for us humans to record and interpret her work.

Frost patterns are amazing. Well except when they suddenly show up on recently
installed triple pane windows! They will be replaced soon.

I like the way yours show up against the dark background.
