I'm glad that an image like this took the blue ribbon. Congratulations!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 08:39:22 AM
Simply stunning. If that's your first with the lens, everyone else's chance at a ribbon has decreased greatly. I'd love to see this in print!

Congratulations, I agree with Andrim and Xilebo that I had no clue as to where it was taken, Ellidardalur was my last guess. Also congratulations on your new lens, don´t you just love it ;o)

Great job. Congrat's on you blue one !

Frábærlega vel gert. Ég verð að taka undir orð Gurrýar(Xilebo), ég hefði aldrei getað giskað á að þetta væri tekið hér heima.

Congratulations Arngrímur! Could never imagine where this was from!

Frábær mynd, ekki hefði mig nokkurn tíma grunað hvar þetta var tekið. Jæja áfram taka Íslendingar þetta með trompi ;) og ekki hægt að kenna íslensku landslagi endalaust um.

It's wonderful how you've created a mood with this picture. Very nice!

Great effect on water.. what was your shutter speed ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 04:36:01 PM
That is beautiful. I very much like the lighting, and the purple color. There is something in the top left corner that keeps buggin me though, is that a roof?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 01:09:11 PM
Great tones and soft flow of the water and capture of the fog/mist. Like the composition very much.

This shot smells like ribbon...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 09:25:44 AM
Very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 11:26:00 PM
I don't generally care for gloomy images, but this is truly captivating. Definitely frame-worthy, and if you cropped the right side about halfway through that clump, I'd vote higher than the 9 you'll have to settle for. ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 05:07:15 PM
Gorgeous, moody and perfectly exposed. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 07:49:38 AM
If I could vote (not a member yet) you would be getting a 10 for this amazing shot! Wonderful feel to it and the blue hue totally adds to it. The soft water is a little weird looking but doesn't hurt the image. good job and good luck on a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 02:38:02 AM
Now this, to my eye, really is beautiful - because, I would say, it's about more than a simply pleasing scene or moment, and moves into the area of complication, of things suggested and unsaid, and it is that delightful ability of the art that nakes photography such a powerful thing. You capture a mood fantastically.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 06:35:17 PM
wow!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 11:07:50 AM
I really like the ominous feel of this shot. I'm big on darks and muted colors. 8.

06/02/2005 08:37:54 AM
Wonderful use of time exposure... the mist adds an excellent element of " mystic" to the photo.

Serene and mysterious at the same time. I emjoy this shot quite a bit. I love the look of the water and the darker muted colors. Beautiful job.

Very interesting. there are many sections of this photo that are captivating. I like the mist on the water and the haze of the trees on the other side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely light and color...completely magical...the softness is so elegant...completely beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 01:50:20 PM
would have been better if lower right area wasn't so dark. a different composition may have helped. GREAT blur in the water though. I like the feel of the shot overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 01:29:36 PM
Very nice. Relaxing to look at with the soft river flow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 09:24:27 AM
Very mysterious and this image works. Would not be surprised to see this close to the top as images such as this normally do well but not quite my cup of tea but still very nice, I gave it a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2005 06:42:23 AM
Wow - it doesn't get better than this! Gorgeous!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice, good to see I'm not the only shooter that thinks moody = beauty. I hope it does well.
