The Glaciar Grey forms part of the campo de hielo sur, which is the biggest non-polar glaciar in the world. The campo de hielo sur is situated in the patagonian andes in Chile and Argentina and has an extension of 16.800 km2.
This foto was taken in the Torres del Paine national park, near the refugio de grey. in the foreground you can see the lake Grey. The locals say that the glaciar has melted a bit and a few decades ago extended futher away to the lake.

Great view of glaciar grey,well framed by the mountans.Good composition with the icebergs in the foreground.
I made a workshop for you and added some contrast.

I think that the foreground is too big.
At least a part should be cut.
And i also miss some light on the water.

Great landscape of the glacier and the wonderful mountains in the background.
I like the colors of the sky and of the ice, and the sea looks nice with this icebergs.
Excellent frame including the Torres del Paine in the right of the image.

A good POV of the Glaciar Grey and of Lake grey, The photo is sharp and clear. It has a good DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.

I like it a lot. Without those ice blocks on the foreground, maybe it was a little bit on the dull side, so it was a very good idea to include them. Too bad for they being out of focus and the lack of detail on those slopes beside the glacier.
The contrast could be better, as we can see in Leo's WS.
