Hello from the critique club

An appealng image that meets the challenge well.

Wow, that must have been some adrenaline rush! Excellent timing to capture the boat in that position it has real impact and makes the image unique. Its surprising what even the smallest speck of red has in an image its such a strong vibrant colour. Apart from the tremendous action there is also the scene itself which could only be in Iceland, you lucky people you, I’m not really jealous am I! Anyway, congratulations Benedikt, a well deserved ribbon…

Clear favorite for the action alone. The scenery, too, is exciting -- wonderful columned cliffs, the leading flow of the river and the lowering sky. Gets the heart racing.
