Very good/low view point to create dramatic forground, natural patterns leading toward exciting landscape. Great work. My only observation is too much blue? A matter of taste obviously but it is a tremendous shot. Well done.

Thanks for all the comments / clicks. Agree that it is very blue, I've uploaded a very quick mod, desaturated the blues & cyans a little, not sure if this helps?

Think I need to play around tomorrow with fresh eyes Smile

Cheers all... Chris Wink

I think I almost prefer the bluer version, makes it feel colder. So were you standing on the ice to take this, or were you too chicken? Wink

Thanks all.

LOL Katy, I was on the ice, but only at the edge of the lake - I didn't want to end up on the front page of the local paper Wink

Lovely scene. It is very blue, but I still prefer V1 as I think the blue works here. Think it probably depends on your monitor.

Only thing that may have made it better still IMHO is if you could've got whole of the rock nearest camera in the frame instead of losing the tip, but there's probably a very good reason why that wasn't possible.

Thanks Sue Smile

The f/g rock was difficult to capture in its entirity, but I have posted a slightly different angle (v3) which does it, but I couldn't get quite as low. I've also warmed this version up a bit.

There was something quite nice about being able to slide the tripod around the ice to capture slight variances (no worrying about re-setting levels etc Wink
