Absolutely beautiful - So much emotion and mood created with a strong, dynamic composition, Heida's hair blowing in the wind, and the winding trail and mist. Nice job!

Lovely image. Love the almost, but not quite B&W. Hair is perfect also - adds an extra degree of striking-ness.

Very interesting shot. Looks like a museum piece to me.

made me hear 'Who wants to live forever...' hair and vapors -perfect. composition impeccable. Could be a fasion shot or a movie still, but somehow transcends these cathegories

I've had to come back and study this shot a few times to really appreciate it.
The composition and detail are first-rate, and one of the better submissions in my opinion. ((9))

Wow, such a powerful photography. Really, really astonishing. Love the dark tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting scene. I like it how the rock (all of it) seems to express itself trough the steam, but especially trough the wind in her hair. The path provides a nice leading line, adds depth and gives a reference of scale for the background.
Damn, Iceland "rocks". :)

Love the gray, white and black colors. I also like how the image seems still, except for the motion in the hair. Well composed and lots to see.

Poweful shot...Like the fact that she is looking down the path, almost contemplating whether to continue the journey or not. Focus seems a little off.

This looks like a nazgul will fly down and grab her! Cool, mysterious, well composed image! 9

Tremendous photo. For me the wind-blown hair is the icing on the cake. It creates a dynamic emotional impact. The wind looks strong enough to blow her off the path. The contrast between white points and black points is stunning. The curve of the boardwalk is a nice compositional element and makes me want to see what's further on. Great job! Hope it ribbons.

Wonderful shot. i like the positioning of the model and the hair in the wind. The fog seems like something surreal, great capture. Nice job with this one.

Really like this, absolutely full of drama - very narrative image. 9.

Great location. She's got great hair. I think the cropping could have been a bit tighter, though... the space on the far right of the image is kind of dead.
