I really don't know which way this photo will go. I did quite a bit more post-processing on this than I normally do, but I personally LOVE the way it came out. I hope that if this doesn't do well that I wont get discouraged. But, I am definitely crossing my fingers on this one...

Thanks everybody for the comments. I took this when I went to Iceland in February. There were so many shots to choose from but this was my favorite. This was a HDR via Photomatix. I then did some desaturation of the blues in the snow, and some brightness/contrast to even out the bottom area of the image. This is my highest score yet, so yayy.

Nice work behind the camera and probably more so the computer. Looks almost cartoon-ish to me but I like it: 10

I'm guessing this is an HDR shot? Interesting effect, but the ultra sharp foreground doesn't work with the softness of the sky for me

I would love to see a tutorial on how you do shots like this, absolutely love the depth of the HDR.

I like the image a lot, but the processing, which I do like somewhat, just seems a bit much where the land meets the sky.
