Photography is like life, it's all about perspective. In this case, everyone was taking photos from the front of the ice sculpture (including my first photos). By walking behind the ice, I was able to silhouette the ice carvers. Consider changing your perspective to create interesting photographs. I was the only one behind the ice.
This was part of Boston's First Night Ice Sculptures located close to where the Boston Marathon bombing took place.
