Wow, it's very cool to have 2 images in the home page :)

For the ones who are wondering: I always thought that some of the wonderful atmosphere of northern landscapes was due to water compared to high mountains (like what happens with mountain lakes or with fjords) so I took an image of one my favorite mountains and mirrored it. Like this an otherwise 'normal' landscape became a wonderful place! And I thought that the bird could be a nice final touch to give balance to the composition :)

I can't really imagine this not being a FS blue, so it's a bit shocking to see it second to anything, but Gyaban's was wonderfully bizarre and interesting. Incredible photo.

Edit: Ha! Joke's on me. I thought this was real. Well, that just shows your excellent PS skills. Well done.

Any plans for Italy to conquer Iceland? You fooled me, I didn't pay attention to the expert rules. Way to go, congrats on the ribbon man, you're all over the front page :).

I must say it is a pleasure to share the front page with you Alessandro :-) Congratulations on your ribbon. I like your analysis of northern landscapes and clever work on composition and colors to give this great sight additional appeal. Very well done!

Certainly not stock photo quality, but a nice image. I'm particularly impressed by the striations in the ice that put some real texture to the reflection. Nice capture.

What a well behaved bird. It's so small and yet without it the impact of this picture would be so much less.

I predict a strong finish. Lovely.
