That mountain looks like the source of the clouds. Magnificent landscape.

Wonderful shot and well-deserved ribbon! It never ceases to amaze me how many beautiful yet diverse landscapes there are in Iceland. Good to see it's not just the Northern Lights up there. ;)

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice work and congrats. I like the line of the fence poles on the left pulling my eye back twoards the mountains/clouds.

What a beauty. Þorsteinn, congrats on your well deserved ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2007 12:22:23 AM
Congratulations! I gave it a 10, but didn't count because I stayed below 20% with the overall rated picts.
My only insignificant concern was the title (it has some 'darker atmosphere' than a real idyll in my mind).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wish I had gotten the time to vote on this challenge. This photo would have been a jaw dropping, breath taking reason why I love this website.

This would have gotten a score of 9 from me. A superbly busy and completely filled shot with balance, clarity, rhythm and beauty.

Congrats on your ribbon! I will be waiting for your next entry!

interesting work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2007 10:34:02 PM
for me this is as good as it gets 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2007 01:36:06 PM
Pretty good, a bit too dark for my taste, would want to see the whole shot a bit brighter but this is good, got a 7 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2007 11:41:01 PM
Wow, great colors, sharpness DOF, perspective... everything. For an 'Idyll' I would expect it to be a bit more life-centric, but anyway it's 10 on my scale...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2007 11:43:49 PM
Love it.....

i love the texture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2007 04:40:52 PM
Back to comment: I've bumped this three times as I sorted through the entries and the depth of this image earns one of the three 10's I'm giving out in this challenge. Wonderful image and I hope to see it with a ribbon.

Great texture here. A touch dark on my monitor, thus makes it hard to look at.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2007 11:52:43 AM
Easily the most striking and original landscape I've ever seen on DPC. This is getting my only ten. If I have given a ten to anything else before this, it'll be getting downgraded at the end to make room.

Those hay bails, jeez the detail is incredible.

continuous wavey grass, hills and clouds is very interesting

Nice work. Surely must be Iceland.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2007 03:18:07 PM
Stunning. I love the repetition of the rolling clouds on the left with the rolling fields, and the streaked/whispy clouds on the right with the mountains.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2007 02:46:41 PM
Those clouds look so crazy as they hit that mountain and push up over it. They really make this scene quite dramatic. The foregound lead the eye so nicely into the scene. Very nicely done!
