This is my first entry to a DPC challenge.

I was driving in the southern part of Iceland, it had been raining heavily, and I was scanning something to shoot. Suddenly I saw a semi-frozen lake, with some rocks protruding from it. I pulled over to the side of the road, grabbed my camera, got as close to the lake as I could, and shot a few frames.

Converted to grayscale, added some blue tint and gaussian blur.

I like the way the rocks break the foreground and to one side, while the sea is calm, the waiting give a more anxious feeling than peaceful.

I like the circle of rocks on the left playing off the one to the right. It does seem peaceful to me. I'm not sure what you are waiting for.

I like this idea, perhaps a little too grey though?

Very nice feeling to the composition and the exposure is good. I would like to have most (maybe around 75%) of the sky cropped out.

Pretty scene, but a longer exposure may have improved this.
