Yet another iceberg from Clyde River, Nunavut. This was a handheld shot while bobbing up and down in a boat. We were not too brave about getting close as pieces can fall off. I have lightened it with curves as it was a bright day and the picture turned out a bit dark. I have also straightened the horizon, then cropped abit.
Do you have suggestions for improvements? I would love to hear them.

Good angle on the iceberg and very crisp textures.

I can even fell the deepness and coldness of the sea, with the blue sky contrasting with the water. You got a pretty sharp picture considering you while standing on a boat. Well done.

Great textures and colors. This looks like a floating cathedral carved from ice. The only thing I see at first glance is maybe it would have looked better without the spot of land on the left...

Good angle and luminosity. The distance is good and offers a nice perspective. I like the texture of the iceberg. Well done

That's a big piece of ice!
Your angle of shot emphasized the enormity of the iceberg which is very well done.
The lighting was good, giving nice contrast.
Actually I think it would be good if you can include more of the shoreline to give a reference scale for the size of the iceberg.

Very scenic iceberg, with a good light (polarization ?) and fantastic textures. Colrs are perfect and I like the crop you applied to the composition. Good shot !

good framing, light and colors.
Yes, the land on the left is little disturbing

I like the shape of this iceberg. Colours and sharpness are superb, light on the ice cliff is fantastic.
Thanks for share.

Wow this is impressive. I can imagine the picture is not rendering the real height and width of this huge piece of ice.

Hi Vera. Wow ! What a beautiful photo. I like iceberg and this one is very impressive ...
it seems as a castle. Interesting contrast between the different texture of ice.
I tried a Ws to reduce noise in the sky ..

Wow, so majestetic ! Well composed and balanced shot you have got. I`m wondering those beautiful curves of ice - maybe they have game during storms by waves - I guess. Sorry, I`m not able to say any improvements - maybe I could have concentrated to those curves only.
