Hmmmmmm...
I would expect a little more hair on those knuckles :P
The shape of the hand looks good but the lighting is ambiguous. It does look like the body is behind ice, but I might make more of a distinction between the hand and the rest.

I figured there would be a lot of diffuse light coming off the ice. How would you suggest distinguishing it more? Harder light instead of soft?

I see what you're saying. It's hard finding references for this kind of thing, but look at pictures of people near ice or snow. They have quite a bit of contrast even with all the bounce light.

Hmm. I didn't use any reference at all. I probably should have for the light...I don't know if I would have found anything though! :)

I tried to search for some references of half frozen things, but I think you'd just have to settle for someone close to some ice :shrug:
