I went out in the countryside with this model, María Rún and another male model to take some pictures out in the Icelandic landscape and this was our final stop that day. I didn´t really shoot this with this challenge in mind, I was aware of it though. Seljalandsfoss is perhaps most famous for the fact that you can walk behind it, and it´s one of my favorites, I have submitted photos of it before to challenges on this website, the most recent one is below.

There were about 30-40 other people there, behind Seljalandsfoss, taking pictures of the sunset throught the waterfall so chances are you might get a similar picture as this in the challenge, withouth María of course. María is lit up by a Profoto monolight with a disc reflector.

Superbly executed. Should've been much higher in my view. DPC's long exposure landscape fetish wins out again.

Wow. Stunning shot. Would I be off my rocker if I were to guess it is this beautiful spot?

I recall the sun setting in roughly that area. Apologies if I'm wrong, or for even guessing. Just taking a stab.

Simply beautiful image with flawless execution.
