Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Ice (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Olympus 18mm f/3.5 MF Wide Ange Zuiko
Location: Thingvellir, Iceland
Date: Feb 27, 2007
Aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 400
Shutter: 30 sec.
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Feb 27, 2007

Shot with a 18mm Zuiko lens attached to a 5D, lens wide open. The moon did light up the scene. Not much to say more. Hope it does well.

Post challenge:
Wow, a ribbon and an 8!!! Many thought this was a Lárus shot but you were wrong :) I'm of course honored by the comparison. I did actually meet him that night at Thingvellir. I'm so glad this did well because I've been sending sub par images in because of pressure from submitting on time for my WPL team. Now my goals will be getting some more ribbons and 8.1 scoring image.

Thnaks again!
