What are the rest of the coordinates?

There's something intriguing about the performance you are getting from your new equipment, and the statements your new series of images make to me. Looking forward to more.

Does that make sense?

Nice, interesting picture, but I don't understand the title or how it meets the challenge. Iceland?

Nice use of the wide angle. It's difficult to get the WB right on ice and snow, huh?

Very nice shot here, I'd like you to be a little bigger in the frame, just a little.

Nice photo. I like the composition. The details in the ice, or is it salt, look very well focused. gj

Beautiful scene and great picture, I do find this a bit of a stretch for the challenge though.

Nice landscape shot, doesn't really hit the challenge for me though.

I'm really not sure how this fits the challenge - but looking at the photo generally . .
I like the crop - it helps give it depth,
I like the rocks coming in both side to draw the eye in.
The sky has (potentially) some nice shapes and colours.

However the whole picture looks a little underexposed - so the rocks lose a little definition and the colours in the sky are washed out. As for the person standing there - I'm afraid I'm not really sure what that's about, or why they are there.

Looks very impressive scenary though.

I feel that this was shoehorned into the challenge. As a shot, by itself, very interesting and it could be fabulous in another setting. So, if you removed the person, resaturated the colors of the hills and sky and put it into something that communicates vastness, you've have a knock-out.

Very cool looking. I don't get the title or how it relates to his scene. Hope there's an explanation in your notes post-challenge.

I looked at it for a while. It is good. Just some kind of impact missing to give it that final kick.... can't put my finger on it :)

Beautiful photo. I don't see the connection with the theme.
