I knew this must be Iceland the first moment I saw it - gorgeous landscape! The viewpoint is great so the viewer can enjoy the serpentine shape of the river.
Congrats on the ribbon!

Beautifully meandering stream is certainly serpentine.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Now that is one twisty, winding, and wobbly river! Love the perspective and details of this wide expanse! The landscape orientation gives the viewer the gorgeous wide view of the land - beautiful mountains and low hanging clouds in the backdrop included. The drawback is that the full impact of the twisting river gets lost in the landscape. The serpentine river is the star subject of this composition. It is a shame to lose the widescreen but to give the river full attention the composition as is now needs to be cropped. My suggestion is to have the start of the river at the bottom of the frame be in the lower left corner such that seems to be flowing out from that corner. To tighten the frame about 10% off the right side. The vertical crop would still include the middle mountain and the cloud covered mountains in the backrop but now the twisty river acts as a leading line that draws the eye, allows us to travel the wibbly wobbly path to discover the mountains off in the distance.

a 7 from me, just boosting the contrast a little would have made all the difference.
