*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations on your yellow/red ribbon. First impressions, gorgeous!

I'm always very envious of you Icelanders and the wonderful photographic opportunities your tremendous landscape offers. It also takes talented individuals to be able to bring out those wonderful qualities to best effect, undoubtedly you are one of those individuals.

Your deliberate choice of viewpoint with the mirror-like reflections of the Aurora Borealis (AB) works really well in doubling our perception and pleasure from this unique natural phenomenon. You have obviously used a small aperture though I'm unsure just how small, instead of a starburst effect we are getting spiky flares from the brightest light sources which is probably the only very minor criticism I could make of the whole result.

Your exposure gives a lovely degree of movement in the AB itself without too much elongation of the stars themselves. The colours are marvellous. I'm assuming the most prominent specks on the water do not appear to tie up with the upper sky and are therefore debris on the water's surface these would probably have been best to clone out.

I've just noticed you got a two!!! Words fail me.

My one visit to Iceland was virtually AB free but everything else there made up for it, I hope to repeat a return trip there before too long. Anyway, thank you for a gorgeous image and the hopes it evokes in me, Sid
