New Icebergs can be very blue as they can come from part of glacier where high pressure has driven out all air bubbles.

I adjusted levels, resized, added border, and sharpened.

I loved this pic, gave it a nine, I would have thought you would have placed better. Although 29 out of 600 some is really not bad either. Will you be making this avaiable to buy?

No desaturation or any other color modification was used. It was cold, rainy and overcast.

fantastic, cold texture, eerily luminous yet understated.

Excellent colors. I think the picture could have a slightly tighter crop so the eye is more focused on the iceberg.

I like the selective de-saturation. Good effect. Though I assume “Natural Color” in the is irony?

I like this picture very much, with the desaturation and all, but it's hard to feel the texture.

I'm still not sure I believe you about the natural colour. Fantastic pic really needed to be levered in to any challenge. Love the shapes. I think I feel the texture of this only very gently.

Beuatiful. The blue ice against the grey background is spectacular.

Beautiful job on the color. Very moody picture. Good job.

How cool is it that you can get an iceberg that close, that sharp, and that pretty? Not very, I think, but then again I hate to be cold, so I'll leave this kind of shot to you. Seriously, this shot is wonderful - I love the gray, bleak background against the gorgeous blue of the iceberg. Well done!
