This picture is taken in a lava tube cave, where I had to walk 2 km and 50 m under the surface of earth. That was a great experience and a big fun doing that. It was great to see how the tube was made of the lava flow, and the stalagmites was amazing.

Æjj djúpt sár í 6.5+ ferlinum þínum. Það sem mér finnst helst að hérna er að ekkert svona "aðal myndefni". Mér finnst litirnir líka full heitir og þessi "sveitti" glampi er ekki skemmtilegur.

Ég segi bara; gangi þér betur næst. (Þú átt pottþétt eftir að gera það)

Not bad, but a little bland.

I'm interested to find out the details of how this was lit. I'm guessing from the non-harshness, that you didn't use a flash and instead brought some kind of lighting kit into a cave. A for effort. Wonder what it would have looked like to have used flashlights to fill in the shadows of your single light source.

Good idea, but I'm not sure if it's the focusing or what, but the bottom portion of the picture seems a bit blurry.

Too much going on in the picture, can't really see much detail and the eye wonders around a bit too much. Doesn't really convey a 30 sec exposure either.
