ok. i'm ashamed not to comment on this masterpiece before ... but hey this is me :-)
anyways ...

composition: excellent, maybe if i can see more of the sea on the left side just to move ice and splashing wave little to the right, nonetheless fantastic

light: excellent, i can only guess what postprocessing steps were taken but i guess i can recognize some "moves" considering the cloudy environment with few sky spots, the contrast between light and dark parts is perfect and details are okay considering dark mood of the photo

everything else: excellent

thats it.

It's a classic Great Lakes scene captured in this shot! Very well done, and love the ice and dramatic cloud formation over the scene. I am wondering how I missed seeing this shot, as I have visited your portfolio many times.
