This photograph is incredibly well taken and implemented and I can barely think of anything wrong with it. I think your use of your camera is excellent and couldn't have been photographed better. The colours in particular are especially brought out by your 15 second exposure which was certainly a wise choice.

There are just a couple of composition elements that I think may have been slightly improved. The reflection on the first 'trident' of the sculpture distracts the viewer from those amazing colours and slightly ruins the dark and cool mood that this image conveys. The light on the left in the foreground is also a distracting element that could be removed by placing your tripod at a slightly different POV.

Otherwise, great DOF, great camera expertise and you should certainly be happy with your 4th place.

Good Luck for all Future Competitions!

Love the textures and color. One of my top choices for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That's some seriuosly rich blue color tones. I can't beleive the extreme clarity of this. With this composition, very irresistable.

Amazing colors! The scultpure does not do much for me (maybe a different angle or a different crop would be better). But I do like the reflection of th left side of the scultpure in the water. Did I mention that the colors are great? :)

I absolutely love this photograph. The blue color is just brilliant.

Nice!
I really like the strong blue colours. It makes the silver on the boat contrast so much more against the sky.

Nice interpretation of an exciting piece of sculpture. Iceland, I expect. The sun still sets a little bit in May, I think.
