Hi Örvar, greetings from the Critique Club!

It's great to comment on this picture, as it was one of my favourites in this FS.

Gave it an 8 during voting, and you got above that from commentators, it's a great score!
And 6.8 in a FS is amazing.

Composition
It must be difficult to have such a great sky and use more of the lower half :)
But it was the best part, the ice sheets do look like a leopard, mixed with the warm tones from above. Great leading lines and seascape.

Processing
Sharp, sharp, sharp! Brilliant contrast, excellent gradient.

It was a winning shot, that didn't get the ribbon because of the though competition.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Regards,
Joao

This is a really unique landscape, which why it's so great. Should have ribboned IMO

Wow - what a different landscape. I have never seen anything like this, although I have only seen snow in real life a couple of times :) Beautiful.

Well done. It is almost as if the clouds are on the water rather than the sky. 8
