The mountains grow unnoticed3rd Place

Thank you all for your valuable comments and for the poetic contribution, I'm happy to see that me picture has inspired some of you. This ribbon is a great inspiration for me, I'll work hard to try to keep the good score in future challenges :)

Little info on the mountain, when I took this photo I had just climbed that mountain, it's not for those scared of heights, but the view from the top is totally magnificent.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First off, congrats on the Top Ten finish. Lovely scene, looks so cold - and I live in Canada so I know cold! Great capture of tones of blue and grey, and that white glacier looks so pristine. Great use of the available light and composition. Really can't fault this pic, but I am wondering why shoot so quickly for a landscape, unless you shot handheld.

Anyway please continue to enter and keep up the good work!


Thank you Susan for your constructive qritique, yes it was cold that day :) This shot was taken on my two day travel on a super jeep over the glacier, and then there is a lot of action going on and not always time to put up a tripod with filters and stuff. The shot was handheld and actually more like a snapshot, but turned out quite well.

Thanks again and regards from Iceland

Autumn colors in Iceland
by Bennih

Hi Garry and thank you very much for your thorough and constructive critique. I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner, but I didn't see this until now. Just for your information then this is shot over a glacial river from the other bank, the fresh water trickles through the lava and into the river from a long lava ridge, a very beautiful place here in Iceland. You can see some more photos from this place at my flickr site


The reason for the not so sharp focus on the trees and bushes is that this day unfortunately it was a bit windy, so with the long exposure time then the focus gets a bit blurred.

Thanks again for your time you put into the critique
All the best from Iceland

Hi Benedikt!! Welcome from the Critique Club!

Firstly, let me extend a personal welcome to DPC, glad to have you on board!

For a Free Study entry, I think you did really well with this image. A placing of 34th out of 152 and a score of 6.25 is very respectable! Clearly it says you did most things right with this image.

What I liked about this image: Pretty much everything. I think your choice of a slow shutter speed to make the water milky in appearance was excellent. It really adds a nice interest point to the image when you get that ghostly feel. Also, the sky is nice and heavy! You chose a good day to shoot this as the clouds really add a sense of drama to the scene. Lastly, between all the greys of the sky and the sea, you have this great little pop of autumnal colors in the trees and flowers on the ridge. A lovely contrast to the image portion above and below!

What I didn't like: honestly, not much. I'm actually surprised you didn't score better with this image as there's really nothing lacking in composition or processing. The only things that might have been better are perhaps your focus (the tree look a little soft and not sharp, but not surprising if you were shooting from a boat?) and placement of the horizon (I feel it'd be a stronger image if you either emphasized the sea or the sky, but as is we're stuck between, and the eye can settle on the image. Mine keeps bouncing from sea to sky to sea to sky etc. A less centered horizon might have made for a stronger composition).

Regardless, I think this is a fantastic image and do hope you will submit more entries on a more frequent basis in the future!

Feel free to PM me if you wish to discuss my critique!

Kind regards,
