The more you submit, the more I want to visit your country. I am of Norwegian decent so the next time I travel to Norway, I'll have to also visit Iceland. What a beautiful place.

The focus on the foreground is neat. Nice image.

beautiful scenery and great setup :)

Good off center. The foreground is a picture in itself, which unfortunately distracts from the white house, a lot.

Absolutely beautiful! The rocks really make this stand out, and the wilderness feel of isolation. So nice! I'd like to see this cropped from the bottom up to around the bottom of the first rock in from our left. That would place the structure that much further down from the horizontal center. But it is really just fine as it is. Great picture. Good job! Is this Iceland?

I do like soft focus, but i think i would have liked the rocks or the house a drop sharper to let me know which is the main subject. Photo is a touch too blue, you might want to play with adjusting the hue. Nice composition overall....

There is a sense of discovery in the "off-center-ness" of your composition - the diagonals of rock and mountain criss-crossing and the building almost unexpected on the side. You've got to love Iceland! One picky ting- wish you could have had the lake not cut in two by the rock - bottom left - just got the camera up a bit higher.

Love the picture. Makes me wish i was there . Only distracting area is the water below flagpole. The lighting is beautiful 8

Very, very beautiful! Where is this? I'm trying to make out the flag, and it almost looks blue/white/blue. Love the rocks in the front. ~10

Very beautiful phot. The lighting, tones, almost make it look like an oil painting.

this is a beautiful landscape picture and looks like it belongs on the cover of a travel magazine

I would have liked to have seen the house in focus and the rocks blurred.
06/17/2003 02:21:21 PM
is the house off-centre, or the rocks? or is it a double whammy? which ever it looks good -7

easy 10, everything about this photo enthralls me.
06/16/2003 07:39:01 PM
my favourite song. extra point for making me smile. (great shot too - like the choice to go shallow DOF on the rocks. might have lightened it up a bit using the gamma adjustment to add detail to the rocks.)
06/16/2003 04:47:15 PM
Great shot, I really like these colors and the foreground.
06/16/2003 01:59:44 PM
This would make a great jigsaw puzzle, 450-1000 pieces or so. :->

Wow! That's a beautiful landscape! I'll look forward to seeing where this is. Looks like they might have a long way to travel to get to the grocery store! :) -9

I love this photo, great textures, colours, composition, lighting. The only thing that bothers me is the dof... I know you were probably after this effect, but it bothers me that the house isn't in focus. I love the detail in the foreground rocks though, if the rocks AND house were in focus I'd have given this a 10 and it would have been my favouite picture. 9

Rocks or glacier ice? Really groovy composition with many levels.

Everything looks really nice, and in focus, except for that house. It's actually really strange how it's blurry amidst generally clear surroundings. Nice composition.
