Greetings from the Critique Club!

Like many others I am wondering why this image didn't ribbon. Maybe Icelandic sunsets are now considered passe, along with macros of waterdrops and tigers swimming underwater?

Anyway I love this pic - the light is to die for, it's so subtle I can hardly believe it's a 30 second exposure. Composition is great with the high horizon as opposed to being dead-centre; great focus stacking, love the delicate rimefrost on the rocks and as was already noted, the 'pawprints' of frozen bubbles under the ice. Tiny bit of glare to the mid-right but hard to believe that that alone would knock you down.

Still, 24/126 isn't bad. All I can think is that most voters haven't lost their infatuation with heavily saturated colours. Next time blast the bejeezus out of the sunset/sunrise, and we'll probably see you ribbon again!

I'm surprised this isn't at the top, this was my pick for the blue. Way underscored.

This is the guy that always wins Free study ribbons isn't it :-)

I do rather fancy this one it almost looks like someone's been put icing sugar on those rocks. Also seems to look like the particles of snow in the water look like pawprints. Very lovely, I guess we will be seeing this on the front page.

Extremely nice focus and composition.
