Nice picture... this must be Strokkur though, since Geysir doesn't erupt anymore. ;)

Hope you got out of the way when it became a Dynamic Explosion! :D The colors are really coming out nice with the overcast sky and your post-processing. Good luck in the challenge.

Very nice timing, the bubbles in the water almost look like ice. The overcast sky didn't help to bring out the colors any. Nice placement of the subject in the frame.

good oxymoron (although I don't recall ever hearing it in conversation). The action is frozen well, but the lighting is flat which limits the shot overall. 6
