Amazing shots! Iceland is on my bucket list. What time of year are these shots from if you don't mind me asking?

Like many people, I have long been intrigued by Iceland and, even more, by Greenland. I've never been to either place, though I have read a lot about Greenland, particularly about the history of the exploration of the place, along with exploration of the Canadian arctic.

The landscape is striking and austere, especially that shown in the first two photographs. Something about the extremely bright luminosity of the chunks of ice and the foam in the third one strikes me as perhaps being over-enhanced.

Hi Dan, I can promise you that it looks like that in person! The black sand, the clear ice, of Jokulsarlon ice beach, is otherworldly! Oh and good light helps

So, how is it that the closest chunk of ice pushes luminosity to nearly pure white, when the other chunks of light that are further away have much less luminosity? ;-)

I'm fine with post-processing by the way, and I don't have any issues at all with working to enhance the qualities of a photograph so that they might more strongly evoke the emotional response that you had to the original subject, which also stimulated your other senses through wind and light and temperature and all the rest. It is an interesting and subjective question about how far is right. To my eye what you have done with that foreground ice chunk in the third image, while creating a striking and interesting visual effect, seems to go a bit beyond the point of "believability," both in terms of luminosity level and removal of what was almost certainly a bit of blue or blue green coloration.

YMMV.

And I'm still fascinated by the places where you made these photographs. :-)

Stunning photos Iurie! Looking forward to seeing more.

Also, I love the way you processed. Real or surreal it doesn't matter. These have impact and make you stop and admire!

I really like 3 if you crop most of the sky out...just to the top where the clouds are on the left side. Leaves a sliver of cloud. Much more focused shot. Killer light

Beautiful images that are unique to an area most of us have never seen. Thanks for sharing them.

I think #3 is particularly special and skillfully done. I like the way you physically composed and photographed this shot: the "Frozen Swan" ice block is set off against a milieu of background ice blocks by surrounding the swan with an interesting pattern of motion-blurred water on dark sand. Obviously the light reflected from the whitish mixture of moving water and surf froth made the swan block brighter than the ice blocks in the background. This succeeds as art, whether you additionally emphasized the luminosity of the focal point in post-processing, or not.

I do agree with aFeinberg's suggestions for trying other variations of this composition. Do you have other images composed mainly of just the ice, black sand, and moving water?

I hope to see more of your posts here.
