I love how you can see the droplets of water. Very powerful shot.

I love how distinctly you've captured the little droplets. Or are they ice? The sky is a bit posterized, though, maybe from JPEG compression.

Great stop motion shot. The geyser has an animal quality to it in this image.

Excellent detail and a strong sense of light - well planned grown-up shooting. I'm not sure that a judicious crop at the top mightn't have strengthened the composition - you've left me expecting more at top of frame, and pulling my eye from that interesting structure of frozen water which you've placed dead centre. Even that progression to black isn't enough to hold the eye at the top.

I can almost see a face, neck and arms in this. Great shot.

Looks like a giant Ogre coming out of the ground...Strokkur er það ekki?

Excellent capture of action in this shot. The details are wonderful in that you can see the particles flying off of this explosion. The colors are bold further complementing the explosive action seen taking place. I also like how you framed the composition with a horizontal presentation to complement the horizontal action of the action of this photo.

Interesting shot. I see a creature smoking a pipe in that explosion. Dunno what it is but its a good capture :)

The geyser image is great, a morph od the sulpher gods. Love the bg gradient. The depth and fiber optic looking edges of the water is something else too.
Good luck with this explosive study.-8-

Is this the same geysir as the other one and 129621?.......well, I think I shall like yours the most....this looks practically alive. Great lighting.

7 - Good capture and colors. Criticism; better without the people in my opinion. If possible, a slightly sharper, ground up, angle/perspective, while still retaining the top of the 'explosion', may have made this even better, not sure. I do like this angle, but think either a tighter crop on the left (if this is all you had to work with), or else centering the 'geyser' better, and possibly some more foreground for added 'context' (again depending what you had originally), may also have made this even better. edit:spelling
