This hurts it is so nice! Lovely PP work. My only nit is the reflection of the biggest ice peak on the left is so much darker than the rest of the reflections. I still think it would have worked without making it that dark. Still an amazing shot though!

Wow, look at that fantastic blue in the glaciers! Love the mountainious region in the background that complements the shape and span of the ice-blue glaciers in the forefront. Clouds are spectacular. This is a high above average shot (7) but there is one thing holding it back from being in the exceptional category. Oh, no doubt the scene was fabulous to experience; not grading it on that but on the composition. I find that the reflections of the clouds in the water makes the composition too busy and draws focus away from those fabulous glaciers and the mountain range beyond. Cropping out the reflections of the 'popcorn' clouds but keeping some of the water in the shot would allow your main focus to be stronger and shine.
