Hi Bruce,

Not too many of us Newfoundlanders here, especially award winning photographers such as yourself. The feature in the Herald a few weeks ago was amazing, by the way. You should put a link to your website in your profile; the folks around here could learn a bunch from you.

Regarding the comment about the blue cast - ice from glaciers has often been compressed at much higher pressures than regular ice cubes that you'll be used to seeing up close. That compression does actually mean that icebergs have a blue hue. This is just how I remember them looking, hue and all.

I like the different hues of blue in this one.
06/17/2003 02:35:30 PM
very stunning, beautiful picture.
06/17/2003 12:55:01 PM
i love the shades of blues & aqua!

Great colours and reasonably interesting content. However what makes it more appealing for me is the shape of the water itself - I can really see the swell and movement of the water. 8

Unreal beauty. What an amazing part of the world, and you captured the image perfectly. Awesome.
06/16/2003 03:42:51 PM
Tell me when you go here again; I'll come with! Super composition.You found the right light here, and I love the point of view so close to the water.

Awsome shot. You really get a good idea of just how big those bergs are and I love the cool colors. Good job.
06/15/2003 06:50:28 PM
The many different tones of blue in this photo lead to a masterpiece image I don't see too often. Wonderful - 10.
06/15/2003 12:25:08 PM
Nice choice of subject - horizon needs straightening, though. Is this faked, I wonder?
06/14/2003 04:11:42 AM
I really like the different shades od blue and aqua in this image. Well composed
06/14/2003 01:20:50 AM
Where was the camera positioned for this shot? Wow! I wouldn't want to fall in these waters. Brrrr!
06/13/2003 11:30:41 PM
WOW!!! Where do you find something like that? Very nice.
06/13/2003 02:04:21 PM
is it tilted left?
06/13/2003 05:42:51 AM
This has a really nice quality to it. I really like the texture of the giant ice mass. The exposure on this shot is very very good. The sky looks like its carrying a bit of noise or something, but its not too distracting
06/13/2003 04:53:08 AM
Excellent! Number one for this challenge, IMHO.
06/12/2003 10:22:24 PM
Stunning! Colors are magnificent. Clarity and composition are very good also.
06/12/2003 08:20:15 PM
Very nice, where did you shoot this? 9.
06/12/2003 08:31:25 AM
dramatic colors!
06/11/2003 10:50:01 PM
Breathtaking! I love the color in this.
06/11/2003 09:54:43 PM
Whoa baby! You suck so bad that you are able to take photos like this! (Jealousy talking here) What a great opportunity -10
06/11/2003 08:51:59 PM
Cool... this looks a little tilted, but it is really a neat photo. Where were you to take this photo? The blues in here are awesome. I wish there was something else there to catch my eye though. However it fits the challenge pretty well and you could definitely put in type. Nice job.
06/11/2003 05:25:11 PM
Very nice, excellent composition. The different shades of blue work together very well here.
06/11/2003 05:07:14 PM
I really like the composition.... the colour is fabulous....the overly white highlights on the ice in the sea and the black dashes on the top left of the iceberg disrupt the visual flow. I wanted it to be my perfect 10 :-(
06/11/2003 01:40:19 PM
This is really beautiful.
06/11/2003 12:24:29 PM
Excellent photo. You did a good job. 10
06/11/2003 12:18:58 PM
good picture.. but, how do you take that ???? =) very nice. .=)
06/11/2003 12:14:44 PM
gorgeous. where taken?
06/11/2003 10:36:58 AM
Stunning color/light. Nice
06/11/2003 02:08:17 AM
The blue cast is too strong and makes the ice look unnatural. Otherwise, a very capturing image.
