Challenge: Free Study 2009-06 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Jökulsárlón, Iceland
Date: Jun 28, 2009
Aperture: f25
ISO: 100
Shutter: 20 sec
Galleries: Landscape
Date Uploaded: Jun 30, 2009

Shot on a trip around the south and south-east Iceland with master Travel and landscape photographer Lucie Debelkova

The conditions at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon are different each time I am there and this one is probably my favorite shots I have ever taken there.

Post Challenge: Yeah!. My first Free Study blue ribbon. Thats a hard one but finally its here after years of entering Free Study every month.

Thanks everybody for the great comments and the good votes!

The photo has minimal editing. The sky was really dramatic that day and using multible Lee GND filters cast a warm color onto the sky. I did a little dodge and burn on the icebergs to bring out its beautiful cold color.

Greetings from the Critique Club

First of all, many congratulations on the blue ribbon!

Now you have made my job very difficult, for how am I supposed to critique the top scoring image in this Free Study.

Composition, colours editing all are excellent. I don't know what you could possibly do to improve it.

I really like the blue in this with the bruised clouds, but the water in the foreground has many funny specks in it...not sure why...might be ice floating
