Shot in Iceland this summer. This is one of my all time favorite places to shoot.
It was raining off and on and then the sun would break out for a few seconds while I was there. Plus they were shooing an Indian movie about 200ft to the left of my location.

Nice image, but the colors seem surreal. My apologies if they're accurate, they just don't look real to me.....6

i like how the ice in the foreground seems to mirror the mountains behind

Nicely composed. The layering of elements very gradually takes the viewer into the image to explore all those patterns and textures.

I can imagine this to be a quiet place but mostly beautifull and cold. Very nice capture

well done, looks duotone, or maybe the only color available to you. regardless, great location and composition.

You captured the color and the feel of the magnificent landscape (OK, seascape) really well. That color is so very impressive, especially in person. Kudos.

It looks quiet. The cold colors are awesome, crystal clear shot.

this is really pretty, but I'm wondering if you ran USM on this? It seems that if you pumped that up a bit more it would really define the ice patches.

Beautiful seascape. Perfect colors and composition.

Well, during summer this place is not exactly quiet except at night. The reason why it not quiet is ofcourse its beauty. Well captured.

Man that looks cold, I really hope you weren't standing in the middle of ice filled water to take that, that would be WAY too much dedication!

I like the shot, but the big bit of ice in the bottom centre just keeps drawing my attention and stops me really getting into it properly. I think if it were more to the left or right (or not there at all) I would like it more.
