I couldn't resist entering a shot of it with the iceberg. I see a face in the iceberg, do you?

Thank you all for the wonderful comments - I am thrilled with my score and placement. I almost didn't enter because I didn't think I could compete with all the much older and beautiful historic landmarks around the world.

Congrats on your 4th place finish! Love the bold reds of the lighthouse and the Canadian Flag. The red and white color scheme plays out very well thoughout the composition - from the lighthouse to the flag and then to the crip, cold white of the glacier in the ocean. Nicely seen and captured.

The iceberg face is great, belongs on Easter Island. Photo is very nice.

I loved how the iceberg looked like the profile of an old man's face. :)
Congrats on the HM Karen.

Excellent composition! Love the bold, geometric feel of this with the unexpected delight of the iceberg. My favorite so far in this challenge.
