This is totally and utterly amazing. I wish I had been there to take ANY shot of this
exquisite spot. I will be anxious to read about 'the taking.' I vote ten.
I am returning to this...still love it.

The ice berg is absolutely beautiful, but the black background seems unnatural.

The maximised potential of this shot has been lost through its size, it could have had even more huge impact being resized to 640 on one side. Lovely capture.

Pretty blue colour. Wish the background was more uniform black.

Lovely colours. With things such as this, it's a little difficult to get a real sense of scale.

In a week I travel to Antarctica. I hope I see icebergs as lovely as this! You have done a splendid job capturing my platonic ideal of an iceberg. The contrast with the sky is very powerful. The forground (iceberg)/background(sky) tension adds interest to the photo. The light levels in the iceberg and what they reveal about the ice is fascinating. Well done! Among my top picks.

gorgeous shot! love the colors

Beautiful Ice Berg would be more like it. Don´t really care for the pitch black sky, just makes it seem fake somehow even though I can see it´s been validated so no point deduction going on here, I assure you. However, the ice, I simply love it, the texture, light and blue colour. Gave this a 7.

Excellent photograph, what an amazing scene. I love the blues. "10" from me, good luck!

I'm sure you've already heard how much more impact this would have, had you taken advantage of the 640 pixel thing. No matter, this image blows my visual mind. Just incredible.

Lovely photo but needs to be bigger. Make sure to have 640 pixels on at least one side.

I like how there's a lot of detail and shades of color in this photo.

What amazing colors! This picture is so striking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a beautifull picture, I'm just afraid that your score will not be as high as you expect mainly because it's too small. You should use the 640 pixels that we are allowed in the challenges.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 06:22:37 PM
Wow, I'd love to see this maximized to 640 pixels!

excellent shadowing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:53:32 AM
Wow great shot. Can't be a real ice berg lit like that with a dark sky, but even so, the impact against the back background is very strong. Would have liked to have seen the full 640px tho! :)

Always liked the deep blue ice. Nice composition and color. Particularly like the black background
