Oh how I wish this wasn´t basic - I would take these sweet :o) drops away BUT I really like this picture with it although more without :o)

This is a waterfall EVERYBODY who travels around Iceland must visit... I´ve been there around 10 times, second time with a camera....

After voting.... Thanks everyone for your kind comments AND votes... I really did not expect this one to do that good because of the "drops" but hey, sometimes small flaws are good :o)

I do have more pictures from Goğafoss on my ipernity profile if you are interested...

Not the coldest-looking scene in the challenge but it is *gorgeous* and beautifully captured. The light and tones and the evident power of the falls are just, well, gorgeous!

cold? for the shot alone 9/10 but i don't see cold, I see awesome waterfall
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/23/2008 09:59:12 PM
Back to comment: Exceptional lighting and post processing. An image I would be proud to call my own. However, it really doesn't convey the concept of cold very strongly. Hopefully, this won't hurt your score very much. Good luck.
