This is another old take from my first icelandic trip
Sorry for the low quality (even if I try to improve it)
We waited for the sunset to see how it would give on this lake. But some clouds arrived then, hiding the sun, but it is not so bad finally!
One of the great things on the evening, is that icebergs looks more blue than on the middle of the day (and there are less people!)

The digital camera has its limitations in these extreme light conditions. The overall composition is really nice and I can see why you took the shot. You really needed a graduated ND filter to balance the bright sky to the land. I hope you don't mind but I did a WS to try to correct some of the problem. The trouble is once an area is blown out it is difficult to restore it.

This sunset is very special with the blue light effect on the ice. TFS.

Un endroit que je n ai pas encore pu visiter mais je retournerais presque en Islande rien que pour le voir.
Le rendu des nuages dans le lac est somptueux et ca change pas mal de bien des photos publiées de ce lieux. Le petit detail qui fait la difference.
Le ciel est un peu explosé, un filtre degradé gris neutre aide bien dans ces cas et ce filtre est presque indispensable en Islande a cause des gros ecart d exposition entre le ciel et le sol.

L'effet est un peu dur mais ca confirme : l'islande c'est vraiment magique !
J'irais pas faire trempette quand meme !

beautiful the colors of the ice in the foreground. I liked the special light you got here. I would prefer you had shown more of the lower side that I think it is more interesting than the upper side. anyway it is a very nice job. almost abstract art
